Pours a golden honey color with a finger head that leaves nice lacing, beautiful carbonation.
Not a lot on the smell, typical adjunct lager malt, some apple, mustiness, honey.
Taste follows with malt, light honey, bready malt, finishes with a whiff of hops.
Mouthfeel is full, creamy, reminds me of Genesee cream ale.
Overall not a bad choice for the price given its competitors, I'm looking at you bud/miller/coors.

Smelled sweet, and that's about it. Dark red/brown color. Head doesn't stick around for long on this one. Tasted sweet. I'd have this again, as it's pretty good.

Look - nice, clear honey brown color, small head that dissipates quickly
Smell - mild, sweet smell. almost no scent of hops
Taste - tastes like weak beer sweetened with honey, no bitterness
Feel - nice carbonation, thin mouthfeel
Overall - this is not to my taste at all. Sweet beer doesn't necessarily sound bad, but it's not working for me. In fact, I think I'll pour this out and try something else.

Cold weather is approaching central Virginia, as with such darker beer

A bit too sweet in the after taste for me. My dad's favorite however.
