    No longer has the same label (or Ornery in the name). It should :) Didn't care for this one in any way. Light bodied. Unpleasant vegetal aroma and flavor. Tasted off, but not necessarily spoiled. Just not good. Blech.

    pours a nice clear copper amber color with a small off-white head with nice laces on the glass. The aroma is of sweet toasted malt and caramel. The taste consisted of sweet malt and a little bit of caramel with an herbal hop flavor in the background. The mouthfeel is a little bit thin with higher carbonation which is refreshing.

    Bottled on March 24, 2009. Not too bad. Metallic with a hint of apples. Decent head. Very lacking and could use some work. May have if offered but is disappointing to say the least.

    You call a beer an amber, it should look like an amber. This one does. Nice fuzzy amber color. Small frothy textured white head rises above. Disappears fairly quickly leaving no lacing attall. Citric and malt in the nose. Medium bodied, well carbonated and smooth on the palate. Citric hops and balance of sweet malt dominate the tasting. A good beer.

    It pours a burnt-orange/amber with thin tan head and some lace. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, light hops, pineapple/citrus, and a blend of peppers and spice. The mouthfeel is smooth, medium-bodied, although somewhat thin. Flavors of caramel malts, light hops, tangy citrus, and the blend of spices. Good!

    Poured a clear amber color with a fluffy white head. Had a nice malty aroma, but a thin mouthfeel. The flavor was slightly sour and almost tasted oxidized. Maybe I got a bad bottle. I think I may review it later on in the interest of fairness.

    Not your average lager! It was hard to ascertain the color since I drank it from a brown bottle, but the head is fairly thick and frothy. Aroma is strong and pleasant, much better than that of most lagers I have sampled. The taste is strong, not complex but pleasant, with some surprising hoppy overtones. Smooth and zesty, this is a good party brew.

    Got this in a variety pack. Slightly murky color of copper and pumpkin. Small head of foam. Caramel aroma with a slight flowery hoppiness. Very bready character With fruits. Tastes roasted malts, mild caramel, tastes a bit sour, wheat flavors come out.

    Pours clear amber with small, lasting head. The aroma is musky with light roasty notes. The flavor is malt-heavy, but light overall; boring. Light bodied with light carbonation.
