Poured from a 22oz bottle:
A: The beer poured a murky brownish color with a nice 2 finger tan head. Carbonation could be seem streaming to top of the glass.
S: Aroma was ok, expected more, but it was malty with some slight hops and a bready hint to it.
T: The taste was good, a nice malt-hop balance with some hints of some spices. Nice malt aftertaste.
M/D: The beer has a medium to light body, with good carbonation for the style. The beer was smooth and easy to drink. Not a bad beer but not a great one either, just a down the middle good beer. This is a beer that I won't seek out or necessarily order if I see it on tap, but one that I will pick up from time to time.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Deep true copper to orange amber body. Fairly clear, with virtually no carbonation present. Head is a fluffy light tan consistency and about three fingers tall.
Very light toasted grains, and small caramel presence on the nose. Not much going on but pretty much what an amber should be but seems very quiet on the aroma front.
Palate matches much of the nose but also it's buried flavor. Quite a watery palate and a matching almost faint taffy watery candy sticky quality. Small toast and grains with also faint caramel adding in the mix. Slightly soapy tasting as well.
Overall it's a session amber, and one without much flavor, but it doesn't bring much else to the table other than it's easy drinking and refreshing. No major complaints but nothing too crazy either, sort of a slightly better Fat Tire vein here.
