App: Dark umber like color with a beige two finger head that retains fairly well and leaves sticky thick lacing all the way down the glass. Little bit of sediment, may have been can conditioned (?).
Smell: Breadiness you would expect from this style of beer but with more hoppiness than say Fat Tire. Subtle gingerbread like aroma, sweet but not over powering. Not super complex in the nose.
Taste: Some malt sweetness up front, but quickly overpowered by slap of hops that is both citric and floral. Some acidic bite, but lacking the bitterness of a PA or IPA. Very well balanced but not all that engaging. Expect more lingering and heavy malt from an “amber ale” (Yes, I know it's a made up style) Easy drinking. Would be a good introductory beer for the craft n00b in your group. Honestly tastes a lot like gingerbread, but not artificial. A good session beer.
Mouth: A little light bodied for an amber ale. Okay carbonation, but could maybe use a little more. A bit on the flat side.

Pours into a standard pint glass a copper/bronze color with a fluffy one finger white head that leaves multiple rings of broken lace behind as it settles.Chocolate malts stand out most in the nose not the big hops the can promises,mild earthiness is detected.Chocolate and fruity malt flavors dominate with some mild pine resin in the finish,again the can promises big hops and the malts dominate.It's not a horrible beer but it's basically a standard amber with a big chocolate elemant,not big hops.

A- Medium copper. Big carbonation bubbles. Big head fades pretty face.
S- Sweet dough, a bit steely, and an odd but refreshing herbal aroma.
T- Too much of that herbalness here. I don't particularly think that is well placed here. That said, I like the sweet, doughy, ever so slightly toasty malt profile.
M- A little light in the body, and I found it to be kind of flat.
O- Passable, but not great. Would drink again, but won't seek out.

Poured from a can into a basic beer mug. Nice golden to amber color with a really floral aroma. I smell citrus with a touch of pine. Nice head with good glass lacing. The beer tastes great with Carmel undertones and finishes clean. I really enjoyed this beer and would recommend again for this style. Very easy to drink. Could be enjoyed with dinner or watching a football game.

12 oz can poured into snifter. Appears a nice deep amber hue with nice clarity, heavy white head and tons of lacing. The nose features herbal hops, heavy cereal grain, caramel, and a bit of pine. Taste is uneventful, some hops, some malt, but nothing really stands out. The bitterness is on the light to moderate side and the finish presents a bit of a black tea flavor. Mouthfeel is on par for style, but the taste really isn't. Unfortunately there is no way for me to tell if this is an old can, but as it is, it is a run of the mill amber.
