    The aroma hits you like a breath of summer air, very aromatic blueberry aroma. I love to pour this beer! It pours a beautiful 1/2" lavender head that leaves laces on the glass as it fades. A beautiful presentation. Very deep purple color that makes you think the berries were just picked, fermented and poured up, all just for you! Taste is bold and of sweet flavorful blueberry. Full flavor, like you're drinking the berries. This is without a doubt the most aromatic, full flavor, not too sweet, not too tart, fruit beer I've had.

    Pours golden yellow with a medium white head that quickly fades.
    Smell is of faint hops. Very weak.
    Taste is also weak grain and hops with a sweet finish.
    This is not the horrible tasting, skunk smelling, piss looking beer I had heard. Yes it is weak. No it doesn't compare to Duvel or Amstel or Stella but for what it is, it is. Try one yourself. I did and was pleasantly surprised

    Pours a clear pale orange with a half inch white head.

    The aroma is hoppy and malty... This is a pleasant surprise from a Molson offering. Honeycomb and apples on the nose with noble hops along for the ride.

    The taste is quite pleasant.

    Sweet and bitter in a light balance with a nice dry finish.

    Actually quite nice.

    Pours hazy yellow with a smallish head and decent lacing.

    A prominent citrusy aroma.

    Taste is mildly bitter. Grain taste in the forefront, with lemony hints.

    A touch syrupy. Medium carbonation and body.

    Not bad. Nothing special though. Decent session beer.

    Serving type: on-tap

    Poured a 1 inch thick head, dark brown.

    Smelled sweet toasted malt, molasses, and expresso.

    Taste like burnt malt, coffee, some light cream.

    Mouthfeel: medium body, dry, semi-sweet, smooth, with low carbonation

    Drinkability: Compared to other oatmeal stouts I have tried this one is pretty average. It is inoffensive on the way down, but the aftertaste just did not agree with me. This one was a disappointment.

    Poured a very pale golden color with lots of carbonation. A light head that dissipates quickly. Little lacing.

    Smell was "strange". I couldn't quite place it, but it was not pleasant. Some hops in there.

    Taste was light with some spicy/citrus and a little hops and malts. Nothing distinct.

    The mouthfeel was also light. Overall, not a very good beer. Just not assertive enought to warrant having another.

    We saw the TACO MAC sign while leaving Big River Brewery in Chattanooga. As expected it was AWSOME! From the greeter at the door to the food, everything was wonderful. The service was quick and the servers were very friendly and knowlegable of the beer and food menus. The beer selection was smaller than other Taco Mac's I've visited (maybe 190 or so) but they had excellent seasonal choices and the most popular brands. We watched the Alabama- LSU football game there and there was plenty of TV's and all were tuned in to various games.
    A great place for the beer, food and fun. I'll definately visit again and reccommend it to anyone.

    poured from a 12oz bottle.
    Pours dark reddish amber with a fully receding tan head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, dusty yeast, and butterscotch. Taste is too sugary sweet with ale fruitiness. Not what I was expecting, but not bad in its right, just not an Octoberfest. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly sticky with medium carbonation. Seems like this beer was fermented too warm, and that’s a shame. It could have been a good beer.
