    Pours a deep orange amber with a fizzy bone head which dies to some thin islands with remarkable speed, and leaves no significant lacing. The aroma is rather faint, with little more than toasted malts. Alcohol esters appea after some warming. The taste is stronger and adds a touch of spicy hops to the solid, if too near to minimal, malt base. Very good bitter/sweet balance. The mouthfeel is medium body; slightly dry even before the semi-dry finish; very good carbonation.

    pretty much what you expect at 5.99 a sixer. decent malt backbone and some floral hops in the aroma. balanced but malt leaning flavor, on the light side, with an unassuming body.

    Pours a nice clear orangy amber with a decent, if not persistent, head. Aroma is fairly strong, malty and just a bit fruity-sweet. Flavor is mainly malty with an undertone of orange and just a tang of hop bitterness. Texture is fairly smooth and just a little fizzy. Overall, OK if not superb.

    I was given one of these to try by a relative. A decent beer. Pretty smooth, although a bit bland overall. Everything goes okay until the aftertaste, which was very bitter and made drinking it that much harder. Still, not bad.

    IT pours a nice amber colour with a small copper head. Plenty of caramel aroma and sweet mouthfeel. Cherries, toffee and other sweet things are prevalent in the taste. Decent beer.

    OOH not what i was hoping for. Poured very flat with a bubbly head that did not lace. Appearance was amber but kind of pale. Mouthfeel is bland and flavor is weak and malty.

    For the price this brew is in a league of its own. Hesitant at first, I poured the amber flow into a pint glass and allowed it to sit for a moment. My first sip surprised me as I never thought that a beer that sells for 4.99 a six pack could pack this much character. A win for the money for sure.

    Well, I most certianly expected worse from this -- especially considering that it is one of the several odd little beers that I only ever see gathering dust on the shelves of most of the Trader Joes around town. Ever the adventurous one, I picked up a host of forgotten singles one day, including this one with a rather athletic dairy cow jumping over some beer kegs(?).

    A bit aggressive with the head formation -- but at least it's not a long-dead ale. In fact, the head and resultant Belgian Lace are quite attractive. Kinda of shame the rest of the beer doesn't quite live up to it's end of the bargain.

    "Subdued" is our Word Of The Day, with a subdued aroma, subdued flavor, and (yep, you guessed it) subdued finish. Not horrible -- I can think of plenty of beers (in this style especially) that are much worse than this. But for what you're getting, it's a pretty fair deal. The single was only $0.75...!

    Probably nothing I will ever get around to drinking again, but if I was in a rush to bring something drinkable to a party of non-UberBeerGeeks (and didn't want to drop any serious coin), I can see picking this up.

    And besides: it's still more interesting than Pete's not-too-Wicked Ale...!

    This beer pours a clear amberish red color with a thin white head which dissipated quickly but left a nice lacing throughout the course of tasting. The aroma is bready, malty and a hint of citrusy! Thr mouthfeel is medium bodied leading into a dry cardboardy finish. Overall malty with a citrus hint, very basic amber red in most respects. You can taste some roasts toward the finish, active carbonation, mildly tongue coating and prickly. Overall a non-experience in most respects.

    Amber color, medium head. Malty and somewhat hoppy. Lots of body. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer, perhaps a touch too sweet.
