This is an average red ale, it pours an off white head and leaves some lancing on the glass.

Clean, smooth, full body, nice flavors in and easy drinking beer. Good price usually. Not for the Hop obsessed, however.

When I am wanting to keep the abv down a bit from my go-to Lagunitas Sucks, this is one of my top options. Pre-craft explosion, this was probably my favorite beer. Great beer for what it is.

This used to be a big deal back in the day before all the serious competition from the micro/craft breweries. Not so, any more to me....flavor is a little bland.

Very under rated fresh brew. Sure it is from Coors, but you have to do some research to find that out. Not only drinkable....remarkable color and full body.
