Poured out equal parts orange and amber, maybe a little brown thrown in to round things out. Aroma was a nice sweet lightly bready malt aroma, with the slightest hop tickle, pretty nice, especially considering the usual way to get me to rate aroma higher on an amber is to just dump a bunch of dry hops in.

Taste, back to ordinary, no off flavors, no depth, but pretty standard crystal and caramel malt presence. Hopping is average and fair. Easy enough to drink, but not going to impress your hardcore beer nerd friends, this one is more geared towards others, maybe waiting to make the leap.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured unto a pint glass.

Appearance: Clear transparent amber, white head comes off the body maybe 1/10".

Smell: Smells like light malts and NOTHING. It is really a weak smell and doesn't really push off as you would expect.

Taste: Much more magnified comes off little sweet and slightly hoppy.

Mouth: Light-medium carbonation, thank god this beer is tasty or I would rate this lower.

Overall: Much better drink than my previous Tommyknocker beer....I definitely would drink this again but not my first choice considering what other lagers are available. Hope you all enjoy this one and cheers to all!
