2.93/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Serving Type Sampled: 12fl. oz. brown crown top bottle. No extra features but a nice sunset picture!

Appearance: Copper in color, small tan head that faded quickly into a loose lace. Very clear.

Smell: Sweet malt and citrusy hops

Taste: Very strange on the palate. At first it’s like bang! Bitterness and caramel malt. But just as quick as it hits you, it’s gone leaving nothing but a metallic aftertaste. There is a slight hoppy note some where in the middle but it is really mild. I also taste a sweet note maybe brown sugar. I haven’t had many beers that fade as quick as this one.

Mouthfeel: Light in body, medium carbonation

Drinkability: Good, I guess. I found this beer to be really strange. I don’t think that I will ever purchase this beer again but by no means is it bad.

Big off white head covers a clear copper to gold colored beer.

A lighter aroma of caramel grain malts with maybe of touch of some hops sneaking in.

A seemingly balance taste of caramel malts and a bit of hops.

Very little aftertaste with very little tastes sticking around with this medium bodied and easy drinking amber.

Pretty easy drinking beer.

Man, it's tough to rate Amber Ales because everyone on this site dogs them. This was an above-average amber ale. It had a nice roasty malt, carmel malt sweetness. The carbonation was just right and it poured with a little off-white head. I like traditional amber ales and I'd rather have this one than a Fat Tire any day.

3.43/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a firm head that persists nicely and delivers a smattering of lace

Smell: Biscuity, with a hint of caramel

Taste: Lots of biscuity caramel up front, with a modest metallic, but spicy, hop element that emerges by mid-palate; after the swallow, the malt bill takes over and provides a rather sweet finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Really for those who prefer a malty amber, this beer is easy to consume but not particularly memorable
