As Prescott Brewing best-selling beer, I'm expecting good things to come. From a 12 ounce can, on to the beer:

Forming a half-inch thick and creamy is the head, while below is a liquid that looks burnt orange amber. Head retention is mediocre, dropping to a think lace. The aroma is malt forward, sweet and doughy with a line of diacetyl/buttered popcorn that slowly becomes more involved into the beer's aroma.

I'm not wildly impressed by the flavor. There's a little fruity ester twang with toasted grain, a slap of butter, and a note of clean hops. The somewhat crisp mouthful helps clean up the taste and attempts to lift the overall flavor, which is on the lighter side. Not that's a particularly warming flavor to begin with.

Mediocrity from a can. At least it's somewhat drinkable.

On tap at Prescott Brewing in Prescott.
Crystal clear amber with a durable off-white head. The glass is left nicely coated after each sip.

Flavor: clean and delicate, with less malt flavor than usual. Some Hops come out in the finish and aftertaste

Feel: Near medium body and medium carbonation,

O: pleasant, easy-drinking but light version of this style.

Serving type: on-tap

Very small, maybe an half inch of light tan head quickly settles into a decent lacing above a clear caramel copper colored beer.

Lightly roasted caramel malt with a light sweetness fill the light aroma of this Arizona made drink.

Light almost sweet caramel taste of lightly roasted caramelized malted barley.

A light aftertaste with barely any dryness and just a bit of the caramel malts taste left behind with this medium bodied beer.

A lighter tasting amber taste with no other drawbacks other than a lighter taste, sometimes you find amber with a light burnt taste or a slight weird taste to them, not this one. But, having said that it would be nice if the taste of this beer was just a bit more full or bolder.

Thanks to James for this AZ beer!

A: Pours a hazy orange with a bit of brown to it. Small off-white head with minimal retention, quickly reducing to a thin ring on top. Not really any lacing.

S: Very bready with a mix of molasses, honey, and caramel.

T: The initial taste is quite malty with some bread and molasses with a bit of caramel in the middle and a candy sweet finish. Has a slight iced tea like flavor to it.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Definitely a malty amber ale, not bad at all. Easy enough to drink.

A - poured with a small head of white foam on a slightly hazy, golden brown body. The head fades away quickly and leaves little lace.

S - bread, light caramel, and some spicy character.

T - thick, sweet malt up front. Some toffee in the middle with caramel and light, spicy hops in the finish.

M - medium body, moderate carbonation, and a somewhat sweet finish.

D - a nicely balanced, if somewhat bland amber ale.

Serving type: on-tap

Prescott Brewing : Liquid Amber Ale

Pours amber with a chill haze and fizzy foam that bubbles to the surface. Aroma of creamy malt, cereal grains, honey and distant hops. In the taste, sweet malt, green apple fruityness, toffee, and mild husk flavors. Little to no perceivable hop character.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a lingering apple sweetness.
Overall, an American Amber ale without any bitterness, as advertised. Could appeal to those not fond of bitters or just looking for an easy drinker.
