The best out of the six pack sampler of the five that I have had so far, but that's not saying much. With this beer they are actually in the right ballpark as to what style it is. It has a nice copper color with little head. I'm sure I would appreciate the taste a little more if the carbonation wasn't so intense. I'd drink this one again but I'm not going to go out of my way to buy one.

Bottle from Champane's Cellars. Pours somewhat amber colour, with above average carbonation. Aroma first of the hops and then of toasted malt. Taste is some caramel and mostly the toasted malt. Hops are there to give it a botter finish and make it interesting and drinkable.

look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

A: Deep cloudy brown with a vapid light brown head that dissipates slowly , clinging to the glass on the way down.

S: Sweat rags and corn. Ooh, I'm not looking forward to this.

T: Tart, sour, highly acidic and bitter. Quite unpleasant. The smell really ruined it, but the taste was really its swan song of terror.

M: Acidic, with good carbonation if you can get it down.

O: What can I say... I am not a fan. I'm always excited to try a brew from Michigan, but this is strike two for Schmohz in my book. I've rarely had a beer I could barely get down. Here's hoping the next Schmohz I try breaks the trend.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Undated 12 oz. bottle: Poured a clear, reddish-amber with orange highlights. The foamy off-white head receded within seconds.

The aroma was sweet and syrupy with some sharp hop aromas that seemed out of place.

As is often the case with amber ales, this one begins malty but quickly shows some hop bitters and the finish is rather earthy and as has been described by others, a little sour.

The body is too thin, but the carbonation is subdued. The ale is a little unsettling on the palate: a fight between soft malty sweetness and a rough hoppy bitterness - just like an Amber Tease, I suppose.

I believe this ale is better than many of the other reviews indicate, however, it is far from my favorite amber. This Amber can tease all she wants, I am not biting. It is interesting that the label describes this ale as a "traditional California style ale."

1.75/5  rDev -40.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Poured into a Le Cheval Blanc pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a two fingered light tan head that is slow to drop. Some lacing evident.

Aromas of caramel and toffee malt, a bit grainy, low hop aroma, a bit earthy.

Flavors of tart, lactic sourness with a hint of bitter on the back end. Infected? A strong astringency flows late in the fade. This is a mess.

Mouthfeel is light, some puckering from the sourness and astringency. A bit of copper/metalic mouthfeel as well.

Overall, edging toward a drain pour. I don't think I can finish this one. Avoid.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Pours an amber color body with a thin white head that has decent lacing and retention. The smell is an apple, bread, yeast, and some hops. The taste starts out with a some caramel malts, some apple and kiwi followed by some floral hops. It also has a bad chemical after taste to it that is like eating chalk. Also when drinking the beer seems to have a very strong sour taste to it. I personally don't care for the taste of this beer, but I know it is me and not the beer since other reviews seem to rate this as a decent beer. The mouthfeel has a watery thin feel to it that leaves some stickiness to the mouth and this would be much more drinkable the chemical aftertaste is making this hard to finish. This is one beer that I don't plan on of drinking again.

2.9/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Presentation: Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a shaker pint glass. Label is a sticker with a buxom red head barely keeping her shirt on. No freshness date.

Appearance: Pours with 1 1/2 fingers of light tan head. This settles to a thin yet complete layers of foam, leaving behind nearly complete lacing coverage. The beer itself is medium to dark amber and slightly cloudy. Lots of suspended particulate matter, but I'll give them the BOD on that based on my pours. Some slightly broken up sediment remains in the bottle.

Smell: Fruity malt, reminiscent of bananas, with strong notes of yeast. Not altogether pleasant. It smells very similar to some of my first attempts at fruit wine prior to and racking and settling.

Taste: Despite a strong, albeit unpleasant, aroma, this is pretty thin and watery. Mild to medium hop bitterness upfront with some notes of slightly sweet caramel malt as a backdrop. Bitterness lingers after the swallow along with a barely noticeable sourness.

Mouthfeel: Average to slightly higher than average carbonation. Body is good.

Drinkability: With the notable exception of the smell, this is not a bad beer. Not exceptional, and certainly not something I will seek out again, but a tolerable sipper.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a plisner glass yields a nicw 1" head. Head disapates fast but holds carbination
Color is a nice amber orange.
Smell is malty with faintness of hops.
Taste is bready malt with a northern hop finish.
An enjoyable drinking CA. Common Ale. A good medium bodied beer that doesn't have a bad hop bite but enough to balance the malt.
