look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12 ounce bottle

Pours clear, darker hued amber. Khaki head that stays. Leaves some larger bubble blobs as well.

Just a hint of some sweet malts on the nose.

Malty brew. Hoppy finish. With a few seemingly off notes. Bleh, not enjoying this one...looks like a drain pour about to happen.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter. BB date stamped May 2014.

Moderate size tan head upon pouring. Body is clear and dark amber. Dark for style.

Aroma: caramel, bready and lightly toasted malt aromas. A light spiciness hints of hops.

Taste: follows smell. Slightly sweet. Darker roasted malts, overall, than usual.

Feel: medium-low carbonation. Medium body

O: OK, but plenty of better ambers widely available.

12oz twist-off longneck
A) Pours with a finger thick head then settles quickly leaving a sticky lacing at the edge of the glass. Clear, amber colored body.
S) Roasty, caramel aroma. Slight bready, yeasty notes.
T) Toasty malts. Mellow caramel. Nutty. Bready. Subtle hops in the finish linger a lingering malty sweetness.
M) Medium body. Slightly dry.
O) A decent amber / red. Dry sweetness is appropriate for the style.

Death Becomes You Amber Ale has a thick, creamy, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, red-brown appearance, and lot of solid lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread crust, some syrup, and standard beer, and the flavor is of sweet, sharp bread crust, standard beer, sweetness, whipped cream, and fairly strong hop bitterness, especially so in the after-taste. Mouthfeel is light to medium and a bit soft, and Death Becomes You finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and quaff-able. Overall, this is quite nice.

A: The beer is crystal clear deep garnet red in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige colored head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light aromas of earthy yeast are present in the nose along with some notes of caramel malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the flavors of caramel malts are a little stronger and there are also some hints of mineral water. No sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and doesn't really seem to be too malty despite the lack of bitterness from the hops.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Pours a very dark copper color with a head the color of grey oatmeal, about 1/4 of an inch, that fades to wisps. Sweet smelling: brown sugar, honey, malt, grass. Initial taste is dry hops, minerals, wood, wheat. The aftertaste is bitter, dry, more metallic, popsicle stick wood. Some nice lacing here and there. It feels like an amber ale - not too heavy, good carbonation. But for me the taste is just too off-putting.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

So it seems we've got a new Mexican line here in the Chicagoland area, so let's take it on piece by piece, starting here with the amber. It pours a clear sunrise amber topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises dry barley, light hard water, and that dark green vegetal smell you get when you whiff young poblanos. The taste holds notes of watery caramel, light biscuit, and dish soap. The body is a rather light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and an exceedingly fluid feel. Overall, this was just a sad, limp little beer that didn't even come off like it was even trying. Let's hope the pale ale, the next on the docket, fares better...

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.
