A - Nice slightly hazy amber colored beer. Thick larger than normal head that clings to the glass and dissapates slowly while providing some nice flavor for the first few sips. Little carbonation.
S- The smell is mild but is a nice mix of malts and sweets. A caramel smell is definitely there but I'm having a hard time picking out the rest. smells
T - Great tasting amber. It has some toffee and caramel mix malts up front and a little tart at the end. The overall taste is very quick and upfront but overall very nice and tasty. It's not too sweet but an excellent blend of malts that isn't overkill.
MF - You can taste the carbonation being released as it swirls around, mediumlight bodied.
D - One of the best Amber's I've ever had. Definitely coming back

This offering pours a deep burgundy color with a small off white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The nose is subtle but pleasant with a nice balance of malt and hops as well as an underlying alcohol note. It sips smooth and clean with a light to medium body. The flavor is pleasant and quite balanced between the sweetness of the malt and the bitterness of the hops. This is definitely a beer that you could sit and drink a number of and enjoy each one. Not particularly complex or remarkable but very balanced and damn good.

Pours a clear red-copper with a healthy beige head that quickly drops to a film with a ring around the glass. Decent retention; some lacing.
Pervasive alcohol sourness with malt notes. Spicy caramel up front with sweet aromas and some hoppy astringency.
Rich, full flavor. Mellow malt tastes with a little caramel and a quick touch of dry hops at the end. Very nice.
Medium body and a little thin-feeling with prickly carbonation and a coating, silky finish.
Mellow, inoffensive, and drinkable. This beer is certainly nothing to write home about but is a solid red beer and would make for a good session beer or could be a good stepping stone into craft for non-beer-drinkers.
Might have again if I had access; a safe bet for a solid, generally enjoyable brew.
