3.06/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 3, 2014.

The pour is a hazy medium amber with no red hints. A modest head that fades to nothing.

The aroma has a sweet roasted malt character and a semi-crisp hint of hops.

The body is light to medium and somewhat smooth.

The taste has nothing extraordinary to it. There are some sweet malts and a short bitter finish. It feels like a knock-off brand.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Red-orange in color, ours with a mild chill haze. The off-white head settles pretty quickly. Lacing is limited to just a few minute spots.

S: Caramel, toffee, bread. Grainy. Fruity raspberry ester. Soft grassy hop backing.

T: Grainy up front. Slightly woody. Lots of toast. Touch of caramel and toffee. Drying. Jab of citric hops. Lemon peel and orange marmalade for an instant. Tobacco. Subtle fruity esters. Dry finish of toast and crust.

M: Medium bodied. Creamy and well rounded. Prickling carbonation. Good.

O: A decent amber ale. Nothing more, nothing less.
