3.35/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Pint can poured into a nonic.

A- 1-finger tan head. Amber-brown body with some sediment floaties that eventually settled out. Good stick.

S- Lots of caramel. A little char. Some bready notes. Nuttiness was lighter still. Pretty bold overall.

T- Fairly malt-centric. Caramel mostly. A bit of a sweet linger.

M- Medium bodied, maybe full for style. Medium carbonation.

O- Robust, but still kind of run of the mill (honestly no pun intended). I'd get it again as I wonder about the age or batch issues due to the amount of sediment. I'd especially give it another chance since this one was free.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours amber red with a slight haze. Thick, creamy, off-white head. 1.5 inches slowly dissipating. Sweet, malty nose, with caramel and yeasty notes. Medium light body and decent lingering Well-developed lacing. Toast, nuts, caramel, and pumpernickel bread on the palate. Very low on hops - would have enjoyed greater hop-malt balance. Tasty.

16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, grapefruit, orange zest, toast, floral, grass, brown bread, light nuttiness, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, floral, grass, light citrus, biscuit, light nuttiness, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, biscuit, light nuttiness, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt flavors; with a light hop balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice amber ale style. Good balance and robustness of malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
