More of the same with the chain breweries- the beer hits all of the basic marks for the style but without challenging themselves with boldness, complexity, or identity.

A clean amber color (strong golden with copperish brown notes) with fair head formation of creamy eggshell foam, fair retainage reducing to a trace half way though the session, and fair on lacing. It's beer.

Aroma and flavor of caramel dominate the glass in rather one-dimensional fashion. Hop bitterness and soft grassy/straw flavors help to offset sweetness but is a far cry from balance. Bread crust and light yeasty spices remind me a bit of graham crackers. Low estery notes give a bit of interest as the beer warms, but so does a residual toffeeish sweetness and feel.

Creamy early, the carbonation disipates and leaves a lot of sweetness on the mouth that prevents the beer from drying or providing a crisp or refreshing finish. A minty-hop flavor offers a much needed reprieve in the aftertaste. (975 characters)

This is just your basic amber ale. It had around average coloring, a bit paler than usual, but still an all right light red. The head was all right, but nothing spectacular. It had a good, sweet/malty aroma that was pleasing, although again, it was what you could get out of any amber. It was fairly smooth and good to drink, a nice sweet beer as promised, but nothing out of the ordinary.

UPDATE: so much better! Better head and lacing, and good copper color; nice scent with good hops at the end; crisp, clean, semi-caramel flavor; goes down great. (551 characters)

This one was on special when I was waiting for a family get together. I wondered why my brother chose this place for my mother's birthday party but i was glad nonetheless. This was just your average amber ale not the slight hoppy reshingness i was hoping for. A nice even maltiness. Maybe a bit too sweet but it warmed nicely and became a bit more spicy. Mouthfeel was a bit thin but not too much so. Drinablity is pretty good. (427 characters)
