Appearance: This fine amber ale pours a dark golden color and is topped with 3/8” of white head that dissipates to a thin layer.
Smell: The aroma of this amber is a nice blend of malt and hops that is rather different from most ambers that I have had.
Taste: Hops play a leading role in this beer and they call it a amber but it tastes like a pale ale of even a IPA.
Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied amber that goes down smooth and has great hop profile for the style, I love what Jackie O’s did with this beer.

Grabbed a can in Columbus, OH earlier toady

The beer pours a relatively clear, dull amber with flecks of gold in the light and a loose white head that's fizzles out quickly with very little lacing. The nose is grain-forward and subtle, definitely lacking the hoppy aromatics I was expecting. While drinking this beer I notice it's lacking the hoppy taste I was expecting as well. It's more of an attenuated, malty amber with a subtle, residual hoppiness. The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, grainy, attenuated, effervescent, with a slight bitterness in the finish. The hop profile isn't particularly citrusy, but would probably fall under that category. I think this is a pretty decent beer, nothing special, but definitely a balanced, drinkable, and affordable amber.

On tap at the brewpub.

Pours a fairly-light amber color with a short white head and not too much retention. Slight collar around the edges. The nose is nice with a bit of a nice hop character. Maybe some floral, citrus, and earthy notes lingering in the background. A bit of lightly-toasted bread in the background as well. The flavor is still nice, but doesn't compare to the nose. Slightly malty with a bit of bitterness. Good body and carbonation and a slightly-dry finish. Pretty good all around and is something I'd grab again.
