look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured out of a can into a pint glass. Received in trade and always grateful!

A – Poured out a light ruby with orange highlights. A full finger of clingy, light tan head that stuck around and left nice lacing down the glass.

S – Roasted malts and slight citrus notes.

T – Nice roasted malt flavor follows the nose. Just a small amount of bitterness. Light caramel sweetness with a nice balance of fruit.

M – Medium bodied. Light carbonation. Creamy and smooth on the palate.

O – Good brew here with well balanced flavors and very easy drinking. You never feel the ABV in any way. Good job.

On tap at Applebees in OKC. Pours to a creamy buff permanent head and moderate lacing. Clear amber color. Aroma is perfectly balanced between sweet caramel malt and floral/spicy/piney hops. Flavor delivers a balanced blend of sweet, toasty malts and resiny hop bitterness and a bit of alcohol bite. Mouthfeel is medium and co2 is spot on. Overall, a beer that contends for best amber in the southwest, in my opinion.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice light reddish amber hue that is mostly clear with a thin quarter inch head that fades rather quickly to leave a light wispy blanket.

S - Aromas of rather sweet fruity malts, caramel, light biscuit. Not much in the way of usual hops...no pine or citrus really, maybe a flash of grape.

T - Taste is better, not quite as sweet, nice malt backbone, faint biscuit and caramel, light bitter finish.

M - Mouthfeel is on the lighter side, sweeter, somewhat thin.

O - Overall a rather average amber. Nothing to see here, move along.

3.81/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Color is...amber. There is a slight chill haze. Forms a rather modest white head, but what does form seems to stick around for a good bit. Some light lacing.

S: Aroma is fruity and malty. Grapes, orange, and caramel malts.

T: Taste is very fruity with lots of yeasty esters - almost like a Belgian - very distinctive for an Amber. It's not necessarily bad, but I do wonder if it was intentional. Caramel malts, apple, grape, light brown sugar. Earthy hops on the back end.

M: Medium bodied with a lighter body than the flavors would suggest. Moderate bitterness. Appropriate carbonation.

O: Not a half bad beer. A very interesting take on the style.

Enjoying this poured from a can into a glass mason jar.

Pours a nice hazy amber with an off-white head.

Aroma is malty but with a few odd notes.

Flavor is hoppier than expected but a little rough around the edges. It seems kinda unfinished, sorta like a Fat Tire but not as smooth. Maybe some adjunct notes too.

Medium to full mouthfeel. I think it would be better with a little less carbonation.

Overall not a bad beer, but I think I prefer beers marked as "amber" to be more balanced than this one. I think a little more malt would improve this beer a lot.

Just had it on draft the following day. I like it better on draft..

Pours a chill-hazed amber with a thumb of tan head. Never totally clears, good lacing & head retention

S: Faint breadyness & grassyness

T: Bready notes, caramel, piney & orangey hops; plus herbal & woody hops up front. Some grapefruit as this warms, a bit of sweet graininess & caramel. Finishes with pineyness, orange peel & a touch of sweet graininess, caramel, leafy tea notes, some herbal hoppyness as well

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, nice balance

Nothing earth-shattering here, but easy to drink
