3.35/5 rDev +14.7%
Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Color was light amber. About an inch of head. Decent amount of lacing on the top. Good looking film on the sides as well.
A surprisingly good smell. Had a mix of chocolate, grains and citrus.
Not much like the nose. Initial taste was grain with a watery aftertaste. Pretty bland overall.
Medium body. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. Somewhat watery.
I’d say the smell is the best part of this beer. I had high hopes after getting a sniff, but the taste was just too plain.

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.

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.

I'll be honest, I bought this for the price. That being said, I wasn't expecting much, just something different to try while I washed my car and lounged around on a Sunday.
I did do a double take after a few sips however. I was expecting this to be pretty bland, but it surprised me by being more average than I anticipated. It's a pretty thin beer but the taste is just complex enough to let you know you aren't drinking a Coors or Budweiser. It's got a slightly malty taste that lingers as you're drinking then gives way to a metallic aftertaste. Not too pleasant but I was drinking lots of water in between bottles so it didn't bother me.
Overall it's not something I'd recommend to friends but if you need a sixpack of low ABV "craft" beers that don't taste like mineral water, it's worth the price.

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.
