Pours a clear, amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of hops, hint of pine, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, hint of caramel malt, and slight adjunct. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, hint of pine, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and slight adjunct. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, but adjunct detracts from the aroma and body.

No label information. Death Becomes You is brewed in the style of an American Amber Ale. Available year round in 11.2 oz. 6 packs.

Poured from an 11.2 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 54 degrees Fahrenheit.

The beer pours a tannish white head over a moderate copper body, very clear with fine sediment and high clarity. Retention is good, lacing is light and patchy. Aromas of caramel grain, biscuit malt and light toffee generate a moderate malt body with a reserved sweetness. The flavor generates slightly more toffee and biscuit with a light earthy graininess to offset the sweetness of the malt profile. The texture is slick, mildly grainy and moderately dry. Carbonation generates a soft crispness for a medium frothy mouthfeel. The body is medium for the style, medium overall. Balance is slightly earthy bitter over sweet. Alcohol presence is light, off characters are minimal. Overall it's a fairly enjoyable Amber Ale that avoids coming off as overly sweet, generating a nice amount of balance from the specialty malt. One of this brewery's more enjoyable beers.

T) Toasty malts. Mellow caramel. Nutty. Bready. Subtle hops in the finish linger a lingering malty sweetness.

Poured a deep clear amber, capped with a thick pillowy ivory head. The aroma is lightly malty but it has certain rich malt characteristic I'd look for in an amber. The taste is okay, with a corn sweetness that also occurred in their blonde ale, although it's much less noticeable and off-putting. The body is a little thin (somewhat watery). All in all, it's not bad, but it's not spectacular, either.
