L: nice head copper color pretty average.
S: not a heavy hop smell more of just a wheaty yeasty smell. Not bad.
T: I love the taste it's crisp it's not heavy on hops it doesn't have a profile that makes me think of all the nuances of the beer. This is a beer to drink with anything and it tastes like it. It keeps its craft quality though lack of complexity.
F: it doesn't explode in my belly so that's good for eating with heavier foods. Crisp finish not a lot of body.
O: This beer is, say, a substitute for those who do not like Oskar Blues IPA. It is just a kick back and chill beer. Eat wings with it who cares. I like this beer because I don't feel guilty smashing one back with normal food. While if I had a Ten Fidy of 3FF Dreadnaught or any real flavorful
Beer I would feel guilty for wasting it. It's ok to have this as just a beer to have at dinner. Not a special desert beer or mid day hop bomb DIPA. It's basically a craft Budweiser. I like it don't love it will not buy again because I prefer Coke(pop,soda, whatever non southerns call it) with most meals. If I do have a beer with a meal out I want a hoppy IPA, not this.

Really great beer for a warm day and pairs well with pretty much any food. Nothing is overwhelming about this beer; it is dark enough to be interesting and light enough to remain refreshing.

Ok, this is well made and drinkable, but here's the thing... Dos Equis Amber is better, and if you are going to do this style AND make Mexican references on the can you need to at least beat that standard.

another exceptional beer from oskar blues that will literally never see the light of day. if dales and old chub and ipa and pinner and mamas never ever were made again, im not sure anyone would miss them. its beers like this that keep these guys awesome and relevant, and i am so thankful that i live in their backyard and can taste the good stuff they do, because their core beers are so tired and played out that its hard to even look at them. this is one of the coolest and most delicious ambers ive ever had, truthfully. the fact its a lager, and its so sessionable, are only ancillary bonuses. super malty, like the longest most caramelized boil ever. it tastes and smells like molasses, black strap. the good stuff. super intensely concentrated grain sugar and flavor for a beer this low in abv. it makes no sense, but it tastes fantastic. huge body too, with the toffee and candy notes, it is smart to have it feel a little larger, but this is big for what it is. lager yeast is nowhere to be found on my palate, but i dont miss it in the least. its like if the darker dos equis went through a full transformation and came out the other side being a delicious craft beer, this would be it. one of those beers that will never get the attention it deserves, but this is top notch in the style, and represents some of the better OB work in recent memory...

Had on tap. Pours clear, orange-brown in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is smooth grains and toasted malt. Not the most complex beer, but very tasty. I would get this one again.

Best thing about this beer is appearance with a nice frothy head and some lace. Slight malty aroma, ditto taste, which is bland and slightly on sweet side, but with enough carbonic tang. Forgettable.

3.57/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Canned on: 3/16/16.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and roasted nut aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, roasted nut, caramel, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, light, and easy to drink.

Serving type: can.

On tap at Kuni Sama

A: Pours copper amber with a frothy tan head that settles to a light layer and laces well.

S: Grainy, some floral and herbal notes, and a little light toffee sweetness.

T: Floral and herbal off the bat, sage?, grainy crackery malt, and light lemony citrus hops on the finish.

M: Light body, moderate carbonation.

O: Maybe not offensive, but not what I'm looking for from this style. It's drinkable but the flavor just doesn't seem right.

12 oz can with a canning date on the bottom of August 2015; purchased at the Brevard NC brewpub.

The clear light amber body comes with even more visible carbonation than usual. The white head is durable and leaves ample lacing.

I believe this is supposed to be a rather "light" beer for cyclists but even so the body is overly thin and the malt aspect of the flavor profile is a bit weak for this style. It does have the crisp lively feel expected but the citrusy hops rather than the malts dominate from start to finish.

O: Setting aside the departures from style, this beer is clean and refreshing.
