3.04/5 rDev -15.1%
Beer pours an appealing amber ale color and is clear. Very poor head retention though. Maybe since it was intended to be consumed out of a can I should let that one pass.
Aroma is fairly subdued. Caramel and some sweetness.
Beer is sweet to start and has a balanced finish. Notes of toast and caramel.
Body is ok.
Beer is ok. Balanced. But nothing spectacular. Easy drinker.

A- Lightly creamy amber color with a slight carmel color head, very little lacing.
S- crisp and light on the malt overall not many aromas that really stick out.
T- Like the smell it has a light malt flavor with a refreshing crispness with a slight earthy note on the finish
M- effervescent, crisp and clean.
O- This a very session-able amber with no over powering flavors and crisp refreshing bite that would be perfect for early spring or fall. It has just enough malt notes to make it an enjoyable craft beer but still be good for more than one at a cookout or camping. The ABv is 5.8%

better than average amber, although weirdly named because this is after all an esb, very english in nature, with a lot of dry and semisweet caramel malt and even a hint of smoke character. looks the part, maybe a little less red than some, but heady for a minute and clean looking. grain driven for sure, summery though and fresher, but also retaining plenty of residual sugar. a little more than i care for personally, but not enough to detract from the overall drinkability of this beer. its also mouthwatering. you want another sip as soon as you take one, and it gets increasingly complex with temperature in a good way, new layers open up. i get some cedar closet must and some creme brulee sweetness, a very rich and decadent brew. enough carbonation, it could stand a little more of a bittering hop, but this beer is a success without question.

A brief head in the tall glass on the handsome amber brew. Malty, with a nose of Mexican sugar cane candy. Less carbonated on the tongue than many brews.
Very tasty roasted malt flavor is quite distinctive, but it gets a little murky before long. Caramel stands out and lasts through to the aftertaste. Rather sweet but a scratch of hops adds some bitter balance. Quite drinkable, but after the initial nutty surprise it's just average.
This is not crisp, it's more mellow but with just a little leafy, stewed hop flavor. Grainy at the finish. From the 12 oz can purchased at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.

A smallish light tan head settles into a decent lacing above a clear caramel copper colored beer.
Roasted to burnt caramel malt aroma seems to bury anything else in the aroma of the amber.
Dark roasted leaning on a burnt caramel malts taste that's not as overbearing as it might sound, but it's pretty much all you taste drinking this Dry Dock offering.
A medium bodied beer with a light dryish aftertaste that brings with it a bit of the overly roasted malt tastes.
Seem to have a bit much of the overly roasted malts in the taste but strangely enough that seemed to hit the spot tonight.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: Dark thick amber color, cream colored head recedes to a light film. Light lacing.
Aroma: Totally amber with caramel sweetness and malts.
Taste: Malty but with a tootsie roll chocolate note instead of caramel. Faint hops somewhere in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.
Overall: I like it. The taste is different from the aroma but both are good.
