look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.75

Poured into a perfect pint. Says "ale with honey added" on label, so this might be a different listing.

3.25 A: Clear dark orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left.

2.5 S: Light toastiness. Bland overall with a noticeable adjunct aroma hinting at rice. A touch of honey comes through, but only because the rest of the nose is so anemic.

2.0 T: Man this is bad. It's has that sickening adjunct sweetness that I will never get used to. The residual honey only bolsters this flavor. Again light toastiness and maybe a touch of graininesss.

2.5 M: Lighter body. Too much carbonation. Could be creaminess. Finish leaves a horrible sweet aftertaste.

1.75 D: This beer is ass. Don't buy it. Avoid it at all costs.

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.
