look: 2.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Appearance: clear amber colored body with ¼ inch white head that leaves no lacing behind.

Aroma: dusty grains and muted spice mingled with some sweet bread

Flavors: a strange sweet note (if that is the honey – I don’t like it) – I think that sweet note is coming from the corn, stale caramel malt, flat dusty grains – old corn, dainty non-descript spice on the back

Mouthfeel: light in body and just a bad taste on the palate, strange, strange and strange, good thing it has a weak nasty aftertaste.

To the Point: a first time home brewer can do better making it out of their bath tub. Yes, this is terrible, save your money, save your taste buds, save the future of mankind -

Tap Room No. 21 Amber Ale from Novato, CA.

This beer had a sweet honey taste (overly sweet) - it says "honey added" on the bottle. A little too sugary for my liking. Even smells sweet.

I drank it out of a bottle from Kroger in Knoxville, TN on 12/22/2012 from a create your own 6-pack.

No.

A- Light amber color.
S- Sweet flowery aroma.
T- Sweet malt.
M- Average. Rather dull.
O- Nothing to really describe. Very average ale. Too sweet for my taste. I guess that's the best way to describe it- sweet malty flavor.

Honestly. I did not like this ale. It was very sweet, almost juice like. It didn't taste like any amber ale I have ever had or would really want to have again.

Appearance is a mid amber color supporting a thin dissipating head leaving no lace. Smell having a honey sweetness with a bit of malt in the background. Taste has that honey sweetness that kind of overpowers everything else and not truly enjoying the malt or hops. Mouthfeel is light with some body with a spike of carbonation. This amber is to sweet for me and takes away from the actual style.

12-oz bottle into Samuel Smith "Tulip" pint glass

A - 4 fingers of off-white head atop a crystal-clear body of pale amber; a few carbonation bubbles

S - appple, grass, caramel

T - honey sweetness, diacetyl, grassy hops, fruit (primarily apple); not a very good balance of tastes

M - sticky light body, medium/high carbonation, astringent bite

O - The label looks crafty, but the beer just isn't very good.

App: Clear, amber, puffed white head that disappeared quickly.

Nose: Malts and fruity, but slightly and cheaply.

Taste: Sweet and syrupy. Corn syrupy sweet.

Notes: Smells and tastes like a Macro's sneaky interpretation of craft and quality. Nothing memorable.
