Pours a pink-tinged amber, very cloudy. Head is off-white, thin rim of bubbles at the edge. Not much lace.
Smells malty, caramel with nuts, pine and citrus. Pine nuts as well. Touch of zest, cake batter. Bit sweet, but decent edge.
Tastes a bit earthy, spicy. Fair roast but doesn't last beyond the mid, where it gets citric and quite dry. Yeah, earthy, a bit spicy, fairly bland, actually. I like my ambers a bit tangier, but it's OK.
Smooth, full, good body. Not too much drying on there.
A bit off from what I like or expect, but decent beer.

330ml bottle shared with me by @LaitueGonflable.
Pours a rather surprisingly pale golden colour, made slightly darker than golden by the haze. Body is quite light. Head forms a lattice of edged bubbles in off-white, leaving tiny specks of lace. Not much visible carbonation. It looks okay.
Nose is rather less than okay. Dusty emptiness permeates it, with a hint of grain husk, and a weak misty nothingness like a ferment of white sugar. Perhaps a twinge of earthy hops, but not much—it's just mostly very weak.
Taste is also light and dull. At least it's mostly clean, but there are permeating characters of sugar-water, more of that dustiness and a thin, empty finish. Surprisingly there's a touch of pithy bitterness on the back that almost adds a bit of interest, but there's also a floury wet-bread note that clings on the finish. Feel is very light, and very weak.
Very weak effort. I think I liked this beer the least of all of the Prancing Pony beers, and to be honest, I didn't really care for any of them.
