I like it when a bomber of beer is $5.99. That's how it should be. Ya know?

Pours a mildly clouded amber with a creme head. Flavor is kind of a malty sweetness that is thick. Seems a little clogged almost. Overall a bit cloying. Doesn't bring a traditional biere de garde character, but it's a nice beer to drink.

Container : 22oz bottle
Appearance : Light Brown to Copper. Nice head that faded to a think foam layer with a couple of minutes.
Aroma : Malty sweetness, low hops but crisp, slight apricot aroma
Tastes : medium maltines with a slight crisp bitterness finishing of the slightly sweet again
Mouthfeel : medium body with medium carbonation.
Overall : This is a good enjoyable easy drinking beer that would be good choice on a hot summer Alabama day.
