look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Arrived in a can with interesting artwork, but the beer pours an uninteresting color unlike what I hope for in an amber ale with a short head.

Smell: Malt and a touch of citrus from the hops along with some grain. Less sweet smelling than most amber ales.

Taste: Malt largely overpowers the hops, as is typical for the style, but nothing really stands out as far as being "unique" as the can advertises. It tastes OK.

Mouthfeel: Thin/medium bodied, carbonation is average. The beer goes down very, very easy .

Overall: For an amber ale the ABV is on the lower end of the spectrum and it is thin, but the beer also some pretty good flavors too. In fact, it's odd to find a beer that is so thin and has such a low ABV that has as much flavor as this does. However, I can't say it tastes spectacular by an means. It makes for a decent session beer.
