Appearance - This is a nice, brown beer with hints of orange coloring and a huge, easy, brownish-white head.
Smell - The grain in the nose is faint and a bit stale with a light floral hopping.
Taste - The malt is bigger at the taste but it is still somewhat stale. Sugars are light and mostly brown.
Mouthfeel - This is smooth with some light but clumsy bitterness.
Drinkability - This was an awkward effort at the style and barely drinkable.

12oz can with no freshness date.
Good amount of foam from a steady pour, lacing has some retention. Bright amber color, very clear. Light herbal citric hop on top of a clean caramel and bready aroma. Slick, almost milky mouth feel with a nice crisp snap. This ale screams "malt bomb" with a thick creamy caramel and nougat sweetness to a more level toasted breadiness in the finish. A quick brush of hop bitterness helps to balance. Clean palate throughout. Grainy and semi-dry in the end.
Not all American ales need to be hops, hops and hops. Nice to see a malt bomb here and there. This one ending to up being a good quaff.

Medium sized light tan head settles into a decent lacing above a clear reddish caramel colored beer.
A light sweetness to the caramel roasted malts in the aroma of this amber.
A lot of caramel in well roasted malt taste that also has a bit of sweetness and just a touch of alcohol included.
There is just a touch of caramel tastes hanging around in a very light dryish aftertaste with this medium bodied beer.
Middle of the road tasting amber, no displeasing tastes or anything, with is better than a lot of ambers can claim.

A - Poured into a pint glass. A thin white head formed and was quickly gone. Amber to bourbon colored and transparent.
S - Honey and wet malt smell.
T - Malty, not too sweet though. Bitter ending that grabs the tongue nicely. Simple, nice flavors.
M - Crisp and clean. Moderate carbonation and light body.
D - Good, easy to drink and solid tasting.

Ok. Had a can from total wine. Maybe I got an old can but I wasn't impressed. It's not a very drinkable amber. Pours clear and,well, Amber. Smells like beer and tastes ok. Hops seem bitter but not too flavorful. Mouthfeel is ok. Overall, not one of my favorite.

On-tap at Brat Haus, Scottsdale, AZ (July 2014):
I had not originally picked this beer when I walked into the establishment, but my friend persuaded me to try it out, saying that it was a really good beer.
The beer produced a nice, clear red/amber color with a nice off-white head that was well retains. The beer gave off a nice light malty aroma, with an ever so light hop aroma. The taste of the beer was good, so much so that I had another. The beer had a lighter body, as expected, and it was smooth, refreshing and very easy to drink. Overall, the beer was good. One that I would defiantly try again if out in Arizona.
