DATE: June 25, 2022... OCCASION: a double dip for beer reviews tonight--should be easy to follow up Corona Premiere, no? GLASSWARE: Hennepin pokal...pours a chestnut amber body, indicative of its namesake... trafficking bubbles build a briefly significant off-white head that simmers to a healthy halo... toasted malts and cereal grains are welcome to a GF offering, with grape (?!), heavily candied sugars, and light citrus weaving in and out... its mouthfeel is thin but not rinsing, with a finish that stays long enough to incite another sip... its body holds rather well for a beer of this ABV and calorie count.... the cereal malts are toasted well enough... its aftertaste suggests raisins, toffee, and syrupy sweet candied sugars, albeit in a drinkable package... this would be welcome at a gathering or party for sure--but on Beer Night, it's not going to win my interest too often. The gluten-reduced approach is appreciated, for sure...

Nowhere near as good as Michelob Lager. Amber malt extract forward without showcasing the agave to any evocative extent. Pale malt...maybe 6-row. Cheap caramalt.

Drinkable and inoffensive, lacking any overt adjunct (i.e. corn or rice) notes, even if it does delve a bit too much into extract-y malt syrup-y flavours for my liking.

Amber Max has a thick, egg-shell head and a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, with no lacing. The aroma is of rich multi grains. The flavor is similar, with syrupy agave sweetness and no bitterness. Amber Max has a medium body and a crisp finish.

Light copper, very clear, white head, loose and no retention.
Some mineral water aroma, along with some very slight sweet maltiness.
There’s a definite malty sweetness to the flavor, albeit slight. It’s still very crisp with a dry finish. Much better flavor than the regular “ultra”.
If an extra carb and a half’s not a deal breaker, this is much better than the regular blue and white can.

Hey, who watered down Busch Copper Lager? Not bad for a light beer, more character than standard Ultra. A little more carbonation than I like but let it breathe a little and that dissipates.they must have used agave to replace corn syrup for an Ultra twist. Anyway, I liked it for what it is.

Looks like a can. Smells higher ABV than it should. Taste is very sweet and malty. This is a light beer with (some) body and a few more ingredients than corn, water and booze. Very good if we're rating to style, which we is

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear amber color with a one finger head of white fizzy foam. The head fades very fast leaving a touch of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a caramel and bready aroma mixed with smells of a light grain and a touch of fruitiness.
Taste – The taste begins with a nice sweet caramel and light bready flavor mixed with some other tastes of a light brown sugar hints of grain. These tastes are later joined by other flavors of a toffee like sweetness and a hint of hay, leaving one with a nice pleasant and mildly sweet taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is thin with a carbonation level that is average. Overall, the feel is pretty good. A lightly higher carbonation may have been a bit more fitting, but for the sweeter amber tastes the feel is actually pretty good overall.
Overall – This is a great slightly sweeter session style amber. You could drink this all day. Great for a cooler fall day, hanging out watching football, tailgating, or just simply shooting the breeze.
