12oz bottle, part of a mix a six from giant eagle in altoona. bottled 9/19/17, so under 2 months old.

clear amber red body, decent off white head, okay lacing

aroma is simply of sweet caramel malt

ugh. the taste does not appeal to this palate on bit. the sweet sticky caramel malts are overpowering. could not finish this.

mouth is a bit above thin, finish is nauseating

tried to be objective, but this was one of the more unpleasant beers I've ever had.

Pours a medium copper color with a white head. Retention is fair, receding to a light topping and a bit of lace . Aroma of spent grains and corn. In the taste, adjunct rice and grain mix with faint malt. Hops are somewhat sour but faint enough to hang in the background. Light bodied and crisp mouthfeel though watery. Overall, this is a very average offering.

Optics are what you would expect. Not much of an aroma to speak of outside some generic caramel malt. Flavor is in the same vein, though there is a bit of a fusel punch at the end. Pedestrian but fine if knocking back a few with some buddies.

Out the can and in the glass the brew appears amber-brown with a mahogany hue. Looks thin, with an off-white head that thins to a rim.

Smells sweet with an herbal hops aroma. Toasted bread. Faint in the nose with subtle hints of brown sugar and cinnamon.

Lightly hopped. A little caramel sweetness, a little hops. Simple, but balanced. However, watery and thin.

Notes: similar to Yuengling Traditional Lager, but not as good and not as hoppy.
