Into a pint glass:

A: amber/red colored body with a one finger white foamy head that leaves a great amount of speckled spider web lacing

S: large amount of caramel malts, lightly hopped

T: mainly sweet through the malts, dry bitter aftertaste and finish

M: light, pretty sessionable, carbonation is pretty smooth and decent for the style

O: not a bad American Red ale, got some more of these that'll probably pass around to see what my friends think

Bought this 6 pack with high expectations. Poured two bottles in a chilled 24 oz glass, looked awesome! First sip was really a disappointment. Crummy after taste. From 50 degrees down to 32 the taste didn't change. Better than some beers I've had, but no means a good beer.

look: 2 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a standard pressure-cap 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Finger-thick white head. Medium retention. Caramel colored body with extremely high clarity.

S- Rosy, caramel, and warm malts. Surprisingly nice.

T- Caramel, distinctly soda-like flavors. Kinda weak.

M- Heavily carbonated, but relatively light body. It's alright.

O- Not a good example of the style, nor is it very drinkable.

The Double Take Amber is OK...its a bit bitter. The beer poured a very nice Amber with 1/2 finger thick foam that is leaving some lace. The smell is really non-distinct. Maybe some malt. The taste as mentioned above is a bit bitter....some more sweet caramle malt balance is needed. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is ok...decent session beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Medium brown, copper amber, good lacing and retention, colour appears a bit dead/muted.

Smell is earthy roast hops, dry citrus edge, some floral malt, with slightly bitter overtones, some coffee.

Taste is initially refreshing malty notes, lingering caramel sweetness, roasted chestnut aftertaste, decent.

Mouthfeel has moderate carbonation, medium body, with pleasant dryness, decently refreshing though a bit warery.

Some faults, it is a decent beer but could definitely improve a fair bit, better ones to try first.
