Light brown in color, darker than most amber/reds, thin 1/4" head. Aroma was pretty neutral.

Taste was a malt heavy amber ale going all in on that and backing down from the hops. Equal parts red and brown ale. Average stuff.

Waaaay too sweet. Reminds me of the sweetened `special` beers in Germany. Red/black label and all

Why does everyone seem to dislike this beer? This is the one that launched Wynkoop, and it's still good after all these years. This was one of my first microbrews, and I still come back to it from time to time. It's a typical solid and very drinkable amber, and there's nothing wrong with that. I will say that the packaging they use for the canned 6-packs needs some work, but the beer itself is just as good as ever.
