I picked up the Amber and Pale from Dans for $13 a 4-pack. I had really high expectations for this, great packaging and from a name with history. To me the beers were easy drinking and pretty non-eventful. Both were very close to their James Squire equivalents. My curiosity was satisfied, but my taste buds were mildly disappointed.

I totally agree, I tried 1 each of the Pale, Golden, Amber and Kolsch last weekend and wasn't overly impressed. Whilst highly drinkable, I wouldn't rush to buy them again.

My pick was the Pale Ale.

I compared them to the Gage Roads range of beers flavourwise, aren't they made by the same crew?

This ones nice for a commercial beer
Id say made with pils and a little bit of crystal not a lot
A bit of wheat and not much else
Again lacking hop flavour and aroma
Even for a Golden Ale
Will be back for the Kolsch soon

Time for the Kolsch
Aromas of Vienna malt I was thinking Munich until i read the bottle
Bready/toasty flavour and bitterness
But no hop flavour or aroma
Clean and crisp
This ones good too
If you like the bready /toasty flavour
