Not amazing but not horrible by any means. It's a decent tasting very drinkable beer.

I should have saved $3.00 and bought Heineken. Drinkable but very disappointed. There is absolutely nothing that makes this beer unique. It is on the bland side and if I lived closer to the beverage store, I'd return it. At least I bought a bottle of Devestation Ale to make up for this junk.

This is an amber ale? Really. What it tastes like to me is an undefined mess of ingredients that come together as a beer that is drinkable but that carries no distinct character enough to differentiate it as a style. Kind of like some random homebrew or something. Like I said, it's drinkable, but I get no distinct character worth mentioning here.
