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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - lighter than other ambers in general, white head that fades quickly. nice carbonation.

S - light caramel, light hops, and slight tea notes

T - very light on taste, not bad, but very light for my preferences. very light caramel taste, the malts make it through the taste a bit and are refreshing

M - very light, crisp, a bit of silkiness in there as well.

D - very drinkable, and just the right amount of kick for the summer.
