I'll agree with the first review. Not a ton of flavor. I don't get as much bitterness but there is an underlying malt character and bready sweetness. This beer could be really good with some fine tuning. Reminds me of a yuengling with more body and flavor.

*Had at the Obrycki's in Baltimore airport (BWI).
Poured a copper red body with one finger head and a grainy, slightly malty aroma. Beer is smooth but at times gets bitter from not only some graininess but just bitter, oily hops. It is not a bad beer but the hops and malts offer very little so you're basically drinking a bitter hopped beer with minimal citric notes and touch of bread and caramel sweetness that are slightly off balanced.

Agree with the other poster that this beer could be really good with some work. . . It's brewed by Heavy Seas so I'm not sure how much influence they had in it. . . Worth a try if your at BWI
