look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a hazed dark amber with a durable creamy tan head.

Smell: pretty much just malts. But appealing, with no off-notes.

Taste: Follows nose. A simple but relatively flavorful amber. Very good sweet/bitter balance from otherwise very subtle hops, although the aftertaste is a bit more bitter than usual for ambers.

Mouthfeel: medium body; a bit smoother than average.

Overall: basic and simple but well-crafted amber beer.

16oz pour. On tap at Taco Mac (Alpharetta, GA). 5.25. Served in a pint glass. 

Pours a deep orange amber with about a half finger beige head. Most lacing is from the initial head but other spots appear as it goes down. 

Smells sharp and earthy. Maybe those are some grassy hops I smell with some hay and mild spices mixed in. Not much to the nose. 

Taste is a nicely balanced. A good mix of malty sweetness and mild grassy hop bitterness. A little bit of sweet bread, some spice and a dash of roasted malt.

Feel is light bodied with fairly sharp carbonation. Dry earthy and mildly bitter aftertaste. No noticeable alcohol whatsoever. 

This is an easy drinking amber. Well balanced and pretty tasty. Not overly complex, but it sure is refreshing.

Appearance is dark amber. The flavor is very nutty & oaty with a slight maple finish (imagine a tasty oatmeal). The body is very light and refreshing; it drinks like cold ice tea. It has a very mild strength with low acidity. This would make a good year round beer. Reasonably priced as well. Very good beer (staple worthy, I think).

22 ounce bottle -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass

A- very amber/red on the pour, clear with a one finger head, world class retention, and world class lacing.

S - a fairly strong bready smell, not bad but sort of one dimensional.

T - fairly mild tasting with a bready rye bitter finish, some spicy notes.

M - Adequate carbonation with a bit of an aftertaste.

O - nothing spectacular, but very drinkable.

Dark reddish beer with a medium heavy body. Pleasant to drink and lots of flavor. Served with grilled steak and chicken and accompanied them very nicely Not accustomed to reviewing beers so don't know the lingo! Just know I liked it and would buy more.

12oz bottle dated 7/1/14 poured into a pint glass
A: Brown with a hint of red and a 1/2-finger head
S: Caramel, bread, sweet malt and a hint of hops
T: Oats/bread/grain, hints of fruit & hops; a touch sweet
M: Medium-bodied, smooth
O: No flaws but a touch sweet; I think a bit more hop influence would help add complexity
