A- Pours a clear light coppery red color. One fingers width of white head dissipates pretty quick. Little to no lacing sticks around on the glass.

S- Nice balance of caramel and toasty malt aromas with a minimal hop presence in the back. Very pleasing and welcoming aroma on this one.

T- Caramel is the most obvious flavor that sticks out. The toasted malts linger in the after taste and coat the mouth. Very nice balance of flavors. Slight bitterness from the hops.

M- Light/medium body with decent carbonation. Refreshing with a crisp finish makes this beer an easy drinker with good flavor.

O- This beers always available by me which is nice. Definitely a beer I revisit often.

I should have saved $3.00 and bought Heineken. Drinkable but very disappointed. There is absolutely nothing that makes this beer unique. It is on the bland side and if I lived closer to the beverage store, I'd return it. At least I bought a bottle of Devestation Ale to make up for this junk.

This is an amber ale? Really. What it tastes like to me is an undefined mess of ingredients that come together as a beer that is drinkable but that carries no distinct character enough to differentiate it as a style. Kind of like some random homebrew or something. Like I said, it's drinkable, but I get no distinct character worth mentioning here.

Enjoyed in a pint glass

A: pours a hazy golden brownish color with a thin finger of fine grayish head that dissipates rapidly, leaves zero lacing
S: has a bit of a sweet scent like raspberries or some other kind of berry maybe, also has a slight scent note like some adjunct lagers ive seen out there
T: ok, its drinkable but thats about it, has a bit of sweetness that i guess i would associate with an amber ale but really isnt entirely appealing
M: thin, leaves the mouth clean, medium intense carbonation at the beginning
O: eh, pretty bland and doesnt stand out anywhere, the best part was the mouthfeel and thats never a good sign for a beer
