look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. Bottled 2/1/14, so 3 months and change.

Pint looks slightly hazy amber color with a small creamy off white head. good carbonation and lacing.

Aroma is faintly of cut grass malt with an even fainter suggestion of hops

Taste shows a pretty decent balance, though leaning more toward the malt side. A pleasant biting bitterness around the tongue

Mouth is medium and a bit foamy.

Overall a decent enough beer, actually got more enjoyable toward the end. Nothing to really brag about, label's prettty cool though.

We did a blind taste test between this beer and 4 other amber ales to objectively determine which one was best. The beers were Full Sail Amber, Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale, New Belgium Fat Tire, Lost Coast Alleycat, and Alaskan Amber. You can watch the video here to see who won:
