Pours a traditional amber, with a white head that's gone in seconds. If ever there was a boring looking beer ...
Malty, biscuity, bready - what other basic and ubiquitous terms can I come up with to describe a basic amber?
Same as the nose, but with an added layer of distinctive tartness - not sweet, but tart like what would be associated with a strawberry. Adds a strange dimension.
It's beers like this that give ambers a bad name - so basic and boring in look, smell and flavor that you might as well be drinking a macro.
