look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Came out of the bottle looking hazy and cider colored. Only a small amount of head leaving a ring around the glass. Interesting it looks like cider and I got apples right at the beginning.Also a lot of fruity yeast and pale/sour malt. The taste has an extremely light malt body with a large amount of carbonation. There is a big bite from the yeast and carbonation at the start. The pale malt then takes over and goes right into a fruity sour apple finish. Semi-dry and tingly.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a glass.

A: Nice deep/dark amber appearance with minimal head.

S: A mild yeasty aroma with no perceptible hops present.

T: A pleasing level of malt sweetness paired with a bready/biscuity presence.

M: An appropriate level of carbonation to pair with the beer

Overall: This is a nice example of an amber ale. It's nothing sensational, but it is a very well balanced and pleasing beer to experience.
