Served on tap at Opal Divine's Marina in Austin, TX

A: Pours a crystal clear medium amber in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall light beige head that quickly reduces to a very thin film covering about half of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of sweet caramel and toffee malts and just the faintest hint of grassy hops.

T: The flavor of this beer is almost all sweet malts with both caramel and toffee notes. There is a light amount of grassy hops in the finish that lends a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Just heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp but slightly thin/watery.

O: Easy to drink and could be sessionable as I could easily put a couple of these back. Nothing special but definitely an enjoyable everyday kind of beer.

look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Had a pint at the draughthouse.

A - Light orange. With a very small head that disappeared almost at once. Not sure why they call this an amber.

S - faintly malty with some caramel, minimal hop aroma

T - Best way to describe it is watery. Very little carbonation and a slight malt sweetness.

M - Light and crisp.

D - It goes down easily because there isn't much body, but the lack of complexity or much flavor doesn't really make we want another.

Thirsty Planet is a new brewer, so maybe this will improve with time.

Serving type: on-tap

Half-pint draft.

a - Pours a very light orange/golden color with moderate carbonation and small head with little retention. The lightest color of this style I've ever seen.

s - Faint malt aroma. Not much hops in the nose.

t - Some mild malt flavor but nothing stands out. There is a hint of hops at the beginning. Nothing lingers after.

m - Watery mouthfeel.

d - This is one of the worst examples of amber I've ever drank. The flavor is lacking all around and the mouthfeel super thin.

I'm really glad I only ordered a half-pint of this. Never again.
