Pours a finger of head on a hazy dark red body.
The aroma is a deep malt smell.
The taste has good balance with the malt sweetness and lemon bitterness playing off each other. Good balance.
The texture is smooth.
A nice drinkable ale.

A - Not really red, but a curiously murky amber. Just a little head and lacing.

S - Thick, slightly sour aroma, vegetable-like hops.

T - Heavy sweet molasses flavor, seems slightly off-balance. Hop character seems vague, indistinct. It's there, but it's an afterthought. Flavor is layered but not terribly imaginative.

M - A little on the thin side, almost seems flat. Leaves bitter oiliness and alcoholic heat behind for a long, lip-smacking finish even after the flavor vanishes.

O - Better than my review might have made it sound. This is a decent mid-range brew, not one to shy away from but nothing you'll probably write home about.

Not bad. Poured this at a good teemperature with a smallish, light tan, foamy head that soon settles out and a bit of lace. Color is an amber red with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is hop, malt, hint roast. Flavor’s like nose, touch on the dry side, raisins, grain, carbonic tang and bitter up front and the bit of sweet in the back. Body is ok, but carbonation is a little soft. Finish is like flavor, quite long and very boozy.

Bottle 2 of Letspour 6 pack bomber sampling of amber beer. Striking socialist/union markings on the front. Would give extra points for that, but alas must be honest.

A: I guess there is red in there. ITs not really red though, its like a muted brown over all.

S: Overhopped. I can smell it already, smells like fat tire does.

T: Well...its better slightly than Fat tire in taste, which fat tire is baseline I use for amber ales, too hoppy picking up pear in it, which I don't think should be there.

M: Like Joker this one is really really easy to drink nothing syrupy about it tends to flow down my throat nicely.

O: Its not bad, not great, not bad. Tone down the hops, or maybe add a smidgen of oatmeal to it, and I will be delighted.
