look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Good head for a bar pour. Mild haze with a solid amber color. Some streaky lace, nothing that sticks around for too long.

Nice combination of paler malts, flowery hop and brewer's yeast. Some stone fruit (cherry?) in the background.

More sweet on the tongue than I expected, but the hop counterbalances this on the swallow. It has many elements of a typical amber, but with an elevated level of bittering hops. Full bodied with a below average carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

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

Appearance – Pours a slightly hazy and pale amber yellow with a ½ finger width of bubbly head.

Smell – Apple juice, grassy grains, straw/hay.

Taste – Predominantly malts (some caramalts) with very light hops. Little more bitter than expected. Grassy on the finish.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall – A generic amber ale by Garrison. A little better than some of their other offerings, but lacking in complexity. Better than the big-league macros, but could use a little polishing up.
