4/5  rDev +21.2%

This one lives up to the name in color, a reddish gold to copper tone with a nice tan had that is thick with bready bubbles that settles slowly and leaves moderate to good lacing down the glass.

The nose is a sweet malt with floral notes from the honey being evident in the mix. some bread and dryness of hops is also there but in a more subdued fashion with hints of dried grass, almost like a prairie on a hot dry day..

The taste is also a crisp one that has a dryer experience than expected from the nose that is nicely balanced with the honey adding a nice and different bit of subtle sweetness to a beer that likely would have been too dry for one so lacking in hops. Now the hops are there, just not in that over powered experience that is typical in American beers. There are peppery notes, bread, grassy tones and a nice sweet finish.

The mouthfeel is effervescent and crisp as well offering a nice continuity through this beer.

Over all it is extremely drinkable and a good flavor. this would be an excellent lager for a very hot day as the flavors and crispness are refreshing.

3.29/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours light, golden/copper. Minimum head and thin lacing.

S: Pretty simple smell. Sweet, almost fruity, and a little spicy. Has a bit of that light beer kinda smell. This may just be me, but I detect a hint of dog breath.

T: Mildy fruity and a bit sweet when it first hits. Follows with a light, more alcohol flavor. Tastes like a beer that belongs in a red party cup, but a little better.

M: Fairly carbonated. Not very interesting feel to this one- thin and to the point.

Overall: Decent copper lager. Thin and not very interesting, but very drinkable. If I had one at the bar I wouldn't order another one, but I wouldn't be upset. I'd just move on with my life and forget I had it.

2.63/5  rDev -20.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a pint glass.

3.5 A: Clear medium orange color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.

2.75 S: Grainy with some toastiness. Some sweetness underneath that prevents this from being clean.

2.5 T: Again grainy and toasty. The sweetness found in the nose is way more powerful than in the taste. It's like a sickly corny sweetness that makes this beer hard to drink.

2.75 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess without much smoothness.

2.5 D: Not a good beer. Nothing else really to say.

2.98/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A - light amber with a soft, loose, white head that fades quickly

S - caramel malt, sweet

T - caramel malt, marshmallows, some sugary sweetness

M - medium bodied, crisp, a tad overcarbonated

This is identical to the Tap Room Amber Ale. My guess is that it's the exact same recipe but with different yeast strains. If there are any differences between the two beers they are subtle and I've missed them. The head retention on this beer may be 10 seconds better than the Amber Ale. So overall my final statement is the same as the Amber Ale: inexpensive and easy to drink.
