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.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a 16 oz. pint glass.

Appearance: Clear dark orange to light amber body. Needed to pour vigorously to achieve a 1 finger white head. Decent carbonation. Looks pretty good. 4.

Smell: Caramel. Slight roasted malt with a bready, saltine cracker-like smell. Slight smell of alcohol and a strange iron-like metallic aroma. 3.25.

Taste: Sweet bready malt and caramel flavors. Small amount of hop flavor on the finish. The metallic taste sticks around a bit. Little aftertaste. 3.5.

Feel: Light to medium mouthfeel. Slightly sweet. 3.5

Overall: A fine sessionable beer by a local brewery. Not a bad drinking beer, but nothing to write home about. About on par, both pricewise and tastewise with Yuengling.
