Nice orange copper body, perfectly clear, with a big two finger head.
The aroma and taste are toasted malts with a honey sweetness, floral, grassy hops.
Light body, medium carbonation, thin mouth feel with a nip of spice from the hops.

12 oz bottled from, and in Athens Ohio.
Deep copper-amber colored body, bright, with a bone-colored head.
This is a solid, simple amber ale. Mild and clean with no major flaws excepting, perhaps, the quantity of ingredients. Probably better than some competitors such as Yuengling.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a vintage Schlitz logo glass. Dark amber in color, with a two-finger white head that settled without a trace. Big aromas and flavors of roasted malt, caramel, and dark bread. Quite a bit of sweetness on the palate, not much bitterness. The mouthfeel is a tad watery, and the finish is surprisingly dry. Overall, this is a pretty good beer.

Clear amber gold color with white cap.

Aroma of rich, slightly toffeeish malt with a hop presence so light I hesitate to give it a description.

Taste is clean and refreshing in the ordinary beer sense. That's not to say it's bad in any way, just ordinary in the way McDonalds is an ordinary hamburger. Inoffensive might be a more polite term but it is a pleasant flavor that leans more toward the caramel/toffee end of the spectrum than to the mild malt category.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

A rather simple yet competently made Amber that should match most food and entertain most company.

I was surprised to find this again. I liked it years ago and I like it even better now. Excellent. Very good taste, smell and feel. Next to Pabst, this is my favorite beer.

Pours hazy orange with no head.
It smells extremely American lagery. Oversweet grain.
It actually tastes fine! Refreshing, sweetish, and refreshing. A lot like Yuengling. A mild tingling fees like it wants to be (earthy) hops fighting against pleasant caramel malt. Full-bodied and surprisingly crushable.

I wish I could give it a minus one. Actually got worse the more I drank. One of the worst beers I've had in years.

Orangey color. Leaves a sweet taste in your mouth. Great beer if you're wanting to really "get your drank on", because it goes down REALLY well. Blink and you'll be finishing your 6, blink twice and you'll be stumbling off to bed.

Great beer for the price, as long as you have a morning to give up, because you're not going to quit drinking it until it's gone the evening before.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Liquor Barn

Appearance: Very see-through. Maybe a light amber color, but I would not have placed the color as red/amber. Head dissipates quickly.

Smell: Not very appealing to be honest. Very musty, little to no hop character.

Taste: Still trends toward something I would expect from an adjunct lager. Very drinkable, but no bitterness or hop/malt flavors that I enjoy from my favorite lagers.

Moutfeel: Very light, smooth, but laces on the tongue a bit.

Overall: This beer is just slightly below average to me. Not awful, but definitely not great.

Amber color with some hint of orange. White head quickly retreats to a thin lace. Smell is caramel malt with no hops aroma at all. The taste is caramel and grains with minimal bitterness. The finish is slightly sweet. Mouth feel is very smooth and the carbonation quite subtle. Overall this is a nice easy to drink beer that is certainly worth a try.
