On tap at John Harvard's in Smithhaven on September 21, 2010.

Poured a kind of murky amber/orange with almost no head. Just a little malt in the nose and a little bit of apple. The taste is pretty bland with hints of honey and maltiness along with a very small bit of hop bitterness. The taste however seemed to be dominated by the distinct taste of an adjunct beer and this, combined with the name, leads me to think its a heavily adjunct brewed beer so it loses points in the taste realm since I find this unpleasant. It was pretty light in body and I could see it being sessioned.

Overall, this is a pretty weak attempt at the style and is probably my least favorite beer I've had at John Harvard's to date. I would avoid and would go for something else on their menu.

On tap at JH. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, apple, and sweet malt. Flavor of wheaty/cracker malt with a sweet finish. Bland and boring. This was a disappointment to me because I was expecting a hoppy amber based on the description, and that's not what this was...I guess it was ok overall, but not one of JH's better efforts.

Poured a medium copper hue with a trace head. There was little retention and lacing.

The smell indicated a light caramel malt with a bit of honey.

The taste featured a smooth caramel malt and very biscuity grain bill. Some hop spice at the start. There was a mild sweet honey element as well.

The mouthfeel was of average fullness with a spicy hop at the start and a smooth doughy malt at the finsh. Mild dryness as well.

Overall a nice and well balanced amber with good drinkability.
