Had this on-tap at the Green Parrot in Virginia Beach. Served in an ice-cold pint glass so the head was fairly suppressed. Nice reddish amber color and some filmy lacing on the glass.

Aroma is fairly mild, some hoppiness and more than a touch of Belgian-type yeast.

I had this with fried oysters and onion rings and the flavor worked well with food. A bit more hoppy than malty but there were elements of both. The yeast thing I noticed in the aroma was more prominent in the taste. Seemed to work well with the other flavors and added a bit of novelty to the taste.

Mouthfeel was crisp with a nice touch of bitterness.

I would order this one again.

Perhaps I shouldn't preface my review with this statement but I will. Of the three Smartmouth beers I have had, this is the only one I did not really enjoy. I like my amber ales balanced with hops and malts playing an equal part and this is not balanced in my opinion. Poured a clearish reddy brown body with decent head and a blandish aroma of mild hops and little bit of caramel and roasted malts, but all very faint. However, upon drinking I find that the roasted malts overpower everything else. The sweetness from caramel and possible other malts, along with balance and crispness and steady mouthflow that comes from a decent amount of hops are all neutralized. Mostly, it just feels like a dry, roasted, "weak stout". The finish is very dry and I find this less a session beer and more of a sipper.
