Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.
A - Pours a clear reddish-brown with a two-finger, off-white, sea foam like head. Leaves just a few spots of lacing.
S - Dextrin malt sugars, grains, hint of caramel malt.
T - Taste follows the nose, with a cloying dextrin malt forward. Hops are bland and mild and very much in the background. Finish gains a strange, coppery astringency and kind of a stale malt pasty taste. I don't remember this beer being this cloyingly sweet when I had it years ago? Sure enough, looks like they changed the recipie. Not for the better.
M - Manages to be watery and slightly syrupy at the same time. Quite a feat. Also slightly undercarbonated, as it seemed to "go flat" during it's time in my glass. Epic fail.
O - Amber ale for the masses. Bland, meek, and inoffensive. Tastes like a "red adjunct" lager. (which is exactly what it is, I guess) Only drank this because someone left one in my fridge. Stay away.
