A great brewery off of Hwy 71, Independence pumps out some great beer. This amber is no exception. It pours a clear amber w/ a thin white head. It smells slightly of yeast & a little bit of malt. The amber has a medium body with a roasty caramel, malt flavor. I can pickup a bit of hops towards the end. Solid amber that is very true to the style. Comparable to Fat Tire & Levitation Ale. I also love the use of the "Greetings From Austin" mural as the backdrop on the label. A great session beer that I can find in most grocery stores & on tap at many Central Texas establishments.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear amber (surprise!) with a very modest head that leaves some splashy lacing behind

Smell: Cereal grains, nuts and butterscotch

Taste: Cereal grains, up front, with the nuts and butterscotch; very malty in the finish, much like the Munich malt flavors found in an Oktoberfest

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This reminds me of a first generation micro brew; nothing wrong with it but very sweet and malty

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity
