Pours a finger of head on a clear red colored body.
The aroma is grainy and danky or earthy. Not bad, but tough to like.
The taste is heavy on the malt, touch of caramel, fairly sweet, mild grapefruit bitterness in the middle.
The texture is sticky and a little heavy.
This amber ale drinks like a double red ale.

22 bottle which was poured into a Tap It branded shaker pint, on to the beer:

This amber ale wanted to go multiple directions, even though neither of its flavors were overly impressive. It looks like a fine amber ale topped with good head retention. The aroma is a little earthy, grassy, grainy, mediocre overall, and the taste is similar to that, although it has the addition of teasing fruitiness. While overall drinkable to an extent, it's not something that I'm rushing to the store for a second bottle.

Appearance is quite decent. An attractive coppery amber in the glass with a thin foam that lasts well. There doesn't seem to be a lot happening at first sip, but the roasted flavors take a while. So then I decided it should be called an Oktoberfest, but finally some hoppy notes emerge. So it's more bitter than that, and pretty much the standard American Amber.

While the bitterness is without much of any hop flavor, but at least there is some balance with the malt. Slightly salty tasting. Altogether not a bad beer, simple, thirst-quenching and fairly flavorful. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Lee's Discount Liquor in Mesquite, Nevada.

An Amber Ale? Really? The brew master must be color blind to call this an amber. It is obviously a brown ale and should be treated as such. Lots of flavor, little bitterness, little much on the carbonation but nothing a swivel in the glass cant handle. Overall a nice tasting beer, probably wont get it again, but hey, the label is cool.
