Appearance - 3.5/5
Pours a nice golden-orange-brown. Minimal head. Very hazy. Nice color, but nothing special

Smell - 3.5/5
Some malts, a heavy breadiness (think saison), maybe some orange and banana. Overall the smell reminded me of New Holland's Monkey King Saison. Not my favorite smell, not exactly what I woudl expecte from an amber ale.

Taste - 3.5/5
A very bready taste, with hints of banana and oranges, along with some sweet malt flavor. Light level of sweetness. Overall, not a giant fan of the flavor, but it's not bad either. My main disappointment is that it doesn't taste like an amber.

Mouthfeel - 4.25/5
Very full-bodied, and very smooth. In between creamy and crisp. The carbonation level is quite light, but I think fits with the beer. Overall, the mouthfeel is quite nice

Overall - 3.8/5
This was a decent beer. I don't really have a lot of major complaints, other than I think the flavor should be stronger (it seems a little watered down). Mainly, it just wasn't what I was looking for in this beer.
