Cloudy, light brown color. The head starts off moderately but retains its presence throughout the tasting. The lace is a combination of ring and spotty lace.

Nearly burnt toast is the first smell I get. There's also a tinge of sweetness. The bittering hop is far in the background.

The flavor starts with crystal malt and some definitive biscuit and toast. There's a good dollop of bittering hop for balance. Although this is not what I would describe as a complex beer, it does hit all of the elements one expects from an amber. Certainly, I would call this a solid entry for the style. Rich bodied with a corresponding higher level of carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

For Some Reason i really liked this beer. Nice hoppy ale.

Taste was great i really liked it. Nice and hoppy but not overwhelming. I would definitely recommend this beer! Hard to find evil genius by me but im starting to like them. If i was going to buy a 6 pack of an ale this would be it. Tough choice between river horse special ale and forsaken!

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

A: The glass pours with almost 80% foam. After it settles to a few ounces of beer and three finger of tan head we can see a hazy, medium copper beer.

S: This beer has an odd, medium citrus hops aroma that seems to starts off with a moderate amount of a plastic to almost chile pepper like notes. Fortunately some more Simcoe-like hops aromas come through with notes of citrus and onion alone with a pine-like hops aroma. There is a medium toasty malt aroma with a light caramel sweetness. On the whole the hops aroma isn't bad but it fades but the phenols are distracting.

T: The first impression is that it tastes more like an English IPA than an American ale with a lot less hops flavor but more yeast character. Then a spicy phenol starts to come through that explains what was going on with the plastic off-note in the nose. The fruity hops are aromas don't carry into the beer like they do in the nose. There is some caramel malt support and the balance is moderately bitter.

O: There is a lot to like about the base components of the beer and I'd try it if I came across a fresh batch but I won't be seeking it out either. It pours and smells like an over-carbonated, possibly infected beer and is no surprise that it tastes like one too.
