look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A - light, see-through amber with a thin, soapy, loose head that fades quickly

S - caramel malt, sweet; very faint

T - caramel malt, light peat, apples, somewhat sugary, marshmallows

M - medium bodied, crisp, a tad overcarbonated

I'm not sure how I feel about this one. The flavor isn't bad, but it's certainly not as expressive as I'd like for the style. The marshmallow flavor through me, but I actually liked it because I thought it gave this beer some dimensions. Overall, this is an average at best amber, but inexpensive and very easy to drink.

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.
