1.93/5 rDev -41%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5
Poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass on 2/2/11
Clear, tobacco brown color. The head didn't quite make a finger's worth & it was short-lived. Swirling helps some but retention is wispy at best (none by the end). Practically no lacing.
This doesn't smell very good. There's an all-too-prominent medicinal-clad fruit aroma that weighs heavy upon notions of faux-caramel & watery bread dough. Faint suggestions of grain & husks that was, thankfully, stronger while still in the bottle.
The taste is comparably bad but in a different way. Still a bit medicinal but not as much. Not quite as much caramel as I would hope for, nor is there a vibrant hop profile that can really make this style shine. Instead it's more of a mild, earthy hop bent strewn in with some yeasty bread notes. There is also a granular notion; similar to wheat perhaps?
Medium-thin, watery feel. Carbonation is appropriately low but it causes the medicinal flavors to leave with a coating finish. Meh.
Siren is pretty dismal across the board; I simply don't find it enjoyable. It gets worse as it warms. I drainpoured the last few ounces.

Floral and nutty, aroma. Slight metallic flavor is offputting. Dry, deeply toasted finish. There's a bit of fruity specialty malt character. Bitterness isn't overwhelming. Malt definitely dominates. Could use more hop character to be a true amber. Very easy drinking.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hops, hint of pale malt, and a hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hops, hint of roasted malt, hint of alcohol, and a hint of caramel malt. Overall, decent aroma, good feel, and decent aroma, but lacking in appearance.
Serving type: on-tap
