My house on July 13, 2012. Bottle into pint glass. Almost two fingers of head, which stayed for a long time. Copper amber color. Pillowy white lacing on the sides.
Very good retention on the sides. Foamy, white and surprisingly thick for an Amber.
Smelled sugary sweet bread, like a dessert. Also caramel, biscuit and nutty.
Smooth mix of biscuit and caramel to start, giving way to a decent alcohol bite. Roasty nuts late, but smooth.
Medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish.
This was the third of four Kirkland beers that I tried. Another decent beer. Not sure why the ratings are so low for these Kirkland’s.

Pours a clear amber colored head with about an inch of an off white head. Doesn't seem to be a lot of carbonation going on.
Smell is a bit nutty, hints of caramel and bread as well.
Taste starts out a bit sweet, like a caramel type of sweetness. Little bit f nuttiness and bread, finishes with a bit of hop bitterness that lingers a bit.
Nothing too special about the feel, nothing bad either. Could use a little more carbonation.
Not a bad beer, not a great beer, kind of an inoffensive one that is still several cuts above mass market beers. When you consider the price, as I spent roughly 50 cents per bottle, it is actually a really good value. This would be a great beer for a party when you have people timid about craft beer, and want to give them something a bit better than the usual mass markets, and don't want to spend a lot.
