3.1/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bottle from Yoke's Kennewick poured into Delirium Tremens tulip, $5.49 for the bottle.

Faint tan 1 1/2 finger head, medium dissipation, minimal lacing. Light amber clear body, no visible carbonation except after tilting glass to drink. The nose is stone fruit (crystal malt?), followed by caramel, a very small flowery hop presence. Taste is dominated by the caramel malt, had a hard time deciphering any hop presence, a little bit of flowery hops after substantial warming. Fairly flat mouthfeel. Drinkable, but at this price and taste profile, I won't be having this again, Too many good NW ambers at a much better price to buy this again. Pass.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint. It has a light amber hue, slightly cloudy with a small white airy head. It has a faint floral hop smell. It has a citrus forward taste with a light hop finish. Has a lightly dry finish and a crisp mouth feel. Overall a decent brew.

3.43/5  rDev +3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: hazy orange hue; looks a heck of a lot more like an IPA than an amber. Head is huge, pouring something like 3 thick fingers of frothy tan foam. Not bad, but not stylistically appropriate. Ambers should be amber, right?

Smell: caramel malt notes interspersed with a spicy funk. Amber saison, maybe? Not bad in its own right, but also not really what I'm looking for in an amber.

Taste: lightly funky brew with notes of bread and caramel malts. Not at all to style, but as a mild funky farmhouse-esque beer -- it's not too bad.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big, round carbonation. Pretty damn creamy. I like it.

Overall: could this beer be infected? It doesn't taste bad, or sour, but it is a bit funky and way more carbonated than you would expect. In any case, its sight and smell are nothing special, but it's anti-style taste is pretty interesting, as long as you like that sort of thing.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A- Almost no head, it fights to stay in the glass but finally succumbs to the beer. Coppery- amber body, extremely clear.

S- smells malty sweet, almost like homebrew. light hop character.

T- Slight soap, malt sweetness and hop bitterness. I think I made a similar beer when I first began brewing. Kind of weak taste, I can taste a slight oxidation and an almost cidery flavor which is a defect for sure.

M- Thin, watery.

D- Not very drinkable, sorry this one is a drain pour (my first on this site!)

3.23/5  rDev -3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

pours a clear dark amber with a medium size off-white head, and good lacing.

smell is of caramel, spice, a touch of lemon, and a touch of roasted malt.

taste is smooth, grain, malt, and caramel, ends a little weak and grainy.

overall an average amber ale, nothing to spectacular.

This is a different amber than the Amber Ale.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean medium amber color with just the slightest touch of haziness. The beer had fluffy, slightly off-white head that dissipated quickly and just traces of lacing.

A very nice, slightly biscuity aroma greets the nose. There is just a touch of hops in the scent. The flavor is similar to the aroma, with there being a little bit more sweetness than the scent had led me to believe.

The body was just a little fuller than average for the style. Drinkability was very nice. If you're in the mood for a smooth, easy drinking beer for an afternoon or evening with friends, this beer won't kill your palate or fry your head. Worth trying when you see it.

Serving type: on-tap
