This is fine beer. Maybe not great, but way better than average. It has a sweet flavor and good balance, not too bitter, but if you're someone who craves bitterness, this might not be for you. I picked up a six-pack at Kroger, not a boutique. This is one of those new mass-produced "craft" beers, an oxymoron if ever there was one. I really like it, though. I'll probably get more of it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

A: This beer is a dark Amber with about a 1 1/2 finger head that was quickly gone.

S: Smells sweet, but this is not a very strong scent at all.

T: Not a lot of bitterness in this brew. Im guessing its rather low on the IBUs. It is well balanced though and it ends with a sweet caramel tang.

M: Medium to lighter body and feel

D: This is a very drinkable beer. Light and refreshing. Great spring beer in my opinion. I am gonna have to deviate from the norm on this beer and give it a higher rating. I really liked this one!

This poured a clear, light amber with white head. It smelled like lots of lemon and grassy hops with dry earthy malt. It tasted almost like apple cider, with sweet caramel malt, apple and lemon hops, and very refined yeast. It was watery with a bit of carbonation, and had a bittersweet aftertaste. Overall this had good flavor and was clean and easy to drink. Maybe the best amber ale I've had yet.

If you are looking for a traditional amber, you will probably be disappointed. However, if you are looking for a drinkable, slightly sweet beer, I highly recommend this. There isn't a hint of bitterness, so if you are the type of beer drinker that avoids pale ales, you will probably enjoy this one.

Crisp and refreshing. Color was a bit light for an amber but it had a great head. The smell was very nice, malty with a hint of hops. The beer was easy to drink, malty sweet with just a slight taste of hops. Malty finish. Good solid beer with malty goodness thoughout.

A rather nice easy-drinking beer. This brew has a classic amber ale color, with a modest head that tends to lace nicely on the glass. The nose is very forward and malty. A smooth taste and smooth medium mouthfeel give this a lager-like drinkability. The beer is a bit sweet on the palate, and low on hop character. A nice drinkable beer that will appeal to a wide range of imbibers, from novices to seasoned warthogs.

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

Look - strong golden color. Almost 2 fingers worth of head, and good carbonation.

Smell - Pale ale smell.. Slightly hoppy but with a floral aroma.

Taste - Tastes much like the smell. Slightly hoppy, and with a floral like hint, which creates a extra bitterness on the middle part of the palate, while the hop's bitterness strikes the back of the palate. Interesting sensation. Kind of a zestiness to it.

Mouthfeel - good balance, but slightly on the creamier side.

Drinkability - Very interesting brew! Nice complexity, decent in taste. Also, not at a bad price, so I'd be very tempted to be coming back for more of this one!

12oz into a pint

A - Pours a light brown color. Very clear, lightly bubbly. Head formation is about none.

S - Very light nose. Just a little bit of graininess. Nothing much there.

T - Starts off lightly malty, some caramel malts. Pilsner graininess seems present. Mid-stream gets more bitter, a little bit of hops. Finishes mostly clean, perhaps a little oxidation.

M - Light mouthfeel, light carbonation. A little bit of a sugary cling left on the palette.

O/D - Easy drinking beer - albeit a little bit pedestrian. For this style, thats probably appropriate.

A 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass, while tailgating for the Texans-Colts game (just to add to the ambience). It was a golden color with a small white head. Sweet malt/caramel aroma. Very malty taste, which kind of overwhelmed everything else. Still, a nice beer to drink.
