Despite what you've heard this is not an amber anything. The color was quite orange with a thin fleeting head.

Quite weak but interesting enough, I caught burnt malt red ale like like qualities in the aroma. Slight caramel malt richness and a little burn makes it interesting enough.

The taste reminds me of Budweiser Black Crown, which is an amber lager, I believe. Somewhat malty with a little red ale tinge, it's very smooth and easy with no harsh adjunct flavor.

12 oz bottle poured into Sam Adams Perfect pint glass

A: Clear golden color with a good 2 fingers worth of head that disappears about as quickly as it appeared, with no lacing.

S: Sweet malts with just a small hint of hops, not much else.

T: First thing I'm getting is the sweet toasted malt, then pretty much the same at the end.

M: Medium carbonation, a little thin and dry in the finish.

O: Not a bad beer, pretty easy to drink and not a bad ABV, just not exciting enough to make it a session beer.
