A - dark copper bordering on amber with a thin, frothy, white head that fades quickly
S - caramel malt, cereal grains, a hint of molasses, woody
T - grainy, caramel, fruity, apple, earthy
M - crisp, medium bodied, a little heavily carbonated, warming alcohol
This isn't a bad beer, but it's a bit rough around the edges. The malt offers a decent flavor profile that isn't typical for an AB product. It could be smoothed out a bit, but as is, it's clean, smooth, and goes down easily. As one would expect, it's very crisp and a bit over carbonated. In the end, this isn't a beer that I'll be going back to. I'm glad I tried it once, and it does meet the requirements of the style nicely. Ultimately, I just need a more flavorful, hoppier lager.

Appearance – This is crystal clear with a monster head that fell quickly, not exactly what I was expecting.
Smell – This smells just like their Adjunct Lager. I really don’t get any characteristics of the style. It’s old, stale, cheap American grain.
Taste – Again this has no malt and I can’t for the life of me find one thing about this beer that would justify calling it an Amber Ale.
Mouthfeel – It’s kind of smooth which isn’t bad but it is way too light for the style and the cheap carbonation is wanting.
Sinkability – I couldn’t even finish this sad effort.
Serving type: can

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.
A: Clear orange amber with decent head and retention.
S: Malt forward with some sweetness. A bit of hops. Reasonably balanced.
T: Same as the smell but more prominent sweetness. A little bit of grain. Tastes kind of cheap. Not awful though.
M: Smooth with more richness than expected. Decent carbonation.
O: While not a bad beer it's not a really good one either. Definitely a step up from regular Bud though.
