This beer looks like a perfect example for an amber. The color is, well, amber, and on the pour you get minimal foam. The carbonation was pretty minimal, and not surprisingly, the foam dissipated quickly.

Off the top a get a little bit of sourness. I get some light malt and some caramel.

In each drink I get the typical amber flavor and a little bit of metalic.

This is a good example of amber. I recommend trying it out.
