3.34/5 rDev -4.3%
12 oz can pours a medium clear amber with good head and lacing. Aroma is definitely malt leaning dominated by caramel with light lemony hops. Taste confirms the aroma - malty caramel and bread all the way with no real hop zing here. Medium carbonation with drying finish and a bitter aftertaste (in a bad way) that hangs on. Sure, I love hops, but I don't mind a malty amber every once in a while if it has a distinctive flavor. This one just isn't that interesting.

Enjoyed this 12oz can out of a large snifter glass.
A: Pours an amber hue with a thick white head that slowly dissipates into a wispy lace.
S: Caramel and bready malt aroma.
T: Similar to the smell there is a caramel and bready/biscuit flavor.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: Just a so-so amber brew

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.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper color with a very nice two inch head of foam; good retention and a few shards of lace are left behind
Smell: Toffee, toast and nuts
Taste: Toast and toffee, up front, with a fruity/nutty flavor developing, in the middle; after the swallow, the sweet flavors predominate though there is a little earthy bitterness to balance
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: Not a bad amber, but definitely oriented toward those who like their ambers sweet
Thanks, mikedR (from the other site), for the opportunity

Attractive red-amber color with plenty of foam in the glass. Light malty flavor with a fair amount of roasted malt. Bitter twang of hops makes up the rest of the flavor. Quite earthy with a mineral taste. A bitterness of nut shells and burned biscuits takes over for the finish. A woody sensation and somewhat acidic. The malty sweetness emerges shyly for a little while.
What seems like off flavors at first sip are apparently the odd fruity hop mixed with a grainy malt flavor. It reminds me of some mysterious casserole slightly scorched in the overn. While I don't care for this much, it is actually quite drinkable once you get used to the taste. From the 12 oz can bought at AJ's Fine Foods in Chandler.
