Weak compared to craft ales. Low IBU taste. Best description is watered taste or a bigger ale. Flavor not bad but weak and leaves early.

Solid looking beer, equal parts yellow and amber. Solid 1" of white head, retained itself well. Aroma seemed like cascade hops. Noticeable.

Malt bill up, all barley, caramel notes, still a little more hopping. Somewhere in between Budweiser and Fat Tire/Boston Lager, this is going in that direction. Finishes crisp and dry, this really wasn't a bad beer, I just don't think it really had a niche to find its place. Good to see their ale yeast program was good.

I had this beer off the tap in Charlottesville, VA back in 2009.
Aroma- I don't recall much about the aroma, but from the group of beer drinkers I was with the hops was mentioned.
Appearance- This was the staple of conversation, it had a surprisingly nice color (a dark amber) and a thick white head.
Taste- Better than Bud by a country mile, but a little less on the flavor scale compared to most Micros. The hops were there but not in a way I am used to for an ale.
Palate- a medium bodied beer with moderate to heavy carbonation. This beer has a semi-dry finish with a slight aftertaste.
Overall- I like this better than Bud, I am assuming the mass public didn't care for the flavor. I wonder how it would fair today with the micros being so popular now.
