Another can courtesy of the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pretty deep amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some light hops. Taste is also on the mild side, some hops, light malts, easy drinking but kind of a bit on the bland side. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

I had this on tap at the White rose -served chilled in a pils glass.
The color is murky ruddy brown with a thick cream cap w/ ultrafine bead and light lace clings. The beer has an ulfiltered look that gives translucent clarity. The smell of the amber is lightly fruit with a slight diacetyl note with mild toasted malt odor. A mildly creamy body, slightly yeasty feel and fruity with a gentle malt element with medium body and semi-sweet finish.
The taste is above average with an appropriate amount of caramel and bready sweetness and mild toasted notes. There is a slight fruity tanginess from the yeast with slick buttery accent however it finishes semi-dry with low bitterness. This has a bit of sweetness but doesn't fall into the full malt or higher than average hopping type amber categories which brings it down overall for me. the taste could have a cleaner yeast which also makes it lackluster for me. It could use some refining in general, but I prefer a drier amber overall.

12oz. can poured into a tumbler glass.
A: deep amber, some chill haze, with a half inch of light khaki haze. Little lacing.
S: Some biscuity malts, slight caramel, and some very light earthy/citric hop.
T: The malt bill is pretty dry. Biscuity, and slight caramel sweetness. Hops overshoot their mark to balance and are slightly too bittering on the finish. Pretty tasty nonetheless.
M- A bit too dry, bitter and metallic, but lighter side of medium.
O - If they could back off the bitterness, and find a yeast strain to impart some fruity notes, they'd have something here (New Belgium Fat Tire as an example) I'd certainly have it again though. Lots of English Bitter qualities here rather than an Amber Ale.
