An absolute gem for the price!!! It's nearly the cheapest beer in my local beer cave and it is better than most on the shelf. It has a classic brown ale taste that would be mistaken for a much pricier brand. It's not hard to make an average brown ale but it's incredible to make such a tasty beer at such a cheap price.

This is a biased review. I have drank this for over 20 years. It is my favorite beer of all time, and I go out of my way to special order it for my use. I have drank many beers, but this one I search for, going to small liquor store to liquor store. It is a beer I love because of its quirkiness. I like the bubbly feel, I love the smell of a fresh opened bottle, and I enjoy that small sweetness that comes with every experience. Thank you, Dundee. Probst!

Nice, simple, straight up beer. Probably great at a grill out.
I had it with spicey Thai, and the sweet, smooth beer was a cool and soothing on my firey tongue.
I say sweet, but not crazy sweet.
For the $6.49 I paid for 6 bottles, I'm very pleased with this summery beer. May go-to again when I need something a bit lighter than my usual chewey stout and porter fare.

It's the craft beer you drank in high school, before you knew what craft beer was. It was a great alternative to Red Dog or Ice House. I read some of the reviews and almost lost my shit when I read someone poured it into a tulip glass. I'm drinking a tall boy of it as I write and all I can say is, I've had a lot worse and a lot better.

It gets that high overall because when I was a wee lad drinking underage this beer was a staple. Strange to think that in a state where great beer was everywhere honey brown was a classic cooler filler. Might have had to due with the fact that girls loved it.
