They mixed up my order and gave me the amber instead of the pale ale. I'm 90% certain about this, so I'm putting the review under amber. The beer is a cloudy red amber with only a slight aroma of citrus hops and grain. The taste is mostly caramel malt and only medium hops which fits with the amber ale. A good amber ale, but not what I was in the mood for.

8 oz tap pour at Water Street Brewery into an American Tumbler.

A - Pretty light in color for an amber. Clear light amber golden yellow in color. Pours with a big two-finger, off-white head. Medium retention with bits of lacing.

S - Mild underlying sweetness with a toasty caramel malt aroma. A kiss of hops but a bit light for an amber. Muted aroma overall.

T - The lack of hops in the nose is slightly made up for in the flavor. Toasty caramel malts in the background with a plain, floral hop aroma. Finishes dry and very mildly bitter.

M - Light-bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Thin for an amber and a bit watery.

D - Easily drinkable as a session beer but just a mediocre beer overall.

Had a few of these while dining out recently. Served in a pint glass.

A: Mostly clear "amber" gold. About a fingers worth of white head. Solid retention. Modest lace.

S: Light caramel malt with hints of bread crust and earthy grains. Not exactly powerful in the nose.

T: Much more of the malty sweetness comes through in the flavor. Bready, light grains, and just a hint of hops in the finish.

M: Medium to light body. Moderate bite of carbonation.

D: Super drinkable if not the most flavorful. Just enough sweetness to keep me interested. I ordered four of them. If that doesn't speak to "drinkability" than I don't know what does.

Served a clear deep brownish amber in color with a thin off-white head. Light aroma consisted of toasted biscuit and caramel. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and crisp. Flavors of caramel malt dominate the palate upfront. Hop bitterness quickly cuts the sweetness and carries well into the finish where a hearty grain flavor leaves a final impression. A very solid and enjoyable amber.
