Sampled this medicore brew at Bahama Breeze restaurant in Rochester. Light red color, minimal head. Fizzy, light body. Sub-par malt character beneath barely a shimmer of hops. A baby step above the usual fizzy yellow macro.

Pretty good for an AB beer. By any other beer's standards, though, a very average beer.

Nice amber coloring, no head to speak of.

Decent mouthfeel, and very drinkable, but really light on flavor. Mild malt flavor, slight hint of carmel, with slight bitterness on the finish. Detected more hops in aroma than in flavor.

Bitterness increased as beer warmed.
