I picked this up in a mix and match section at Fresh market. After one drink it tasted like I was drinking a lite version of an Octoberfest beer, tasted watered down very disappointed as Leinenkugels usually puts out good beer. Even Yuengling tasted better than this

Nope, not a fan, opening smelled of wet dog, mouth feel was fine at first, but lingered a hoppy sourness that was off putting.

Would not but a six again, glad I got it as a single bottle. Wasted $1.99

I was expecting much more having seen a lot of marketing for this brewery's beer's but I feel let down on the hype.

Best before 12/16/13.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt and caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with toast and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable but pretty boring and forgettable for the style.
