Poured into a perfect pint. I've been to Jackie O's many, many times and tried many, many beers, but this one along with most of their normal lineup have been overshadowed and forgotten during my trips. Thus, this is my first real endeavor into the usual.
3.0 A: Mildly hazed copper amber color. One and a half fingers of frothy off white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.75 S: This smells like I want amber ales to smell like. Big toastiness up in the forefront with sweet caramel malts playing an almost as powerful supporting role. Grassy hops and a touch of earth to round it out.
3.25 T: The taste is good, but it lacks power and needs a stronger malt base. Toastiness, caramel, and grassy hops again, just not enough.
3.25 M: The mouthfeel is also lacking. Light to lighter medium body. Very lightly creamy. Needs more body and creaminess.
3.25 D: It's decent enough, but I'm not surprised that no one has ever said, "Here try this," while I was at JO's drinking much more interesting beers.
