Very mild, sessionable amber ale. Touch of hops. Light mouthfeel. Good color.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Pint mug
From: Albertson’s in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $1.67 ($9.99 for a mix 6-pack)
Purchased: Oct. 11, 2014
Consumed: Oct. 11, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a dark caramel, auburn, semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki, light tan, frothy head. A few streams of bubbles coming up from the bottom, but nothing crazy. Decent amount of uneven spots of lacing along the sides of the glass. Average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.88)

Smelled menthol, cough drops, honey, caramel, lemon zest, light grassy notes and slight roasty malts. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted better than the nose. Got rich caramel, honey, roasty malts, menthol, menthol cough drops, lemon and light nuts. (Taste - 3.88)

Light-to-medium body. Thin-to-oily texture. Soft carbonation. Long, sweet finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This was overall a pretty good amber. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to try it or even rate it, but not bad for the style. (Overall - 3.88)

I prefer lighter/smoother amber ales and this is the best of them all.

Decent copper tone. Finish is bitter, but overly done. Pretty good west coast amber ale.
