3.81/5  rDev -0.8%

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.

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

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.

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.

Yay cans!
New brewery never heard of, and neat name... thanks to rudzud for leaving this with me as he's had it before.

Pours a light fizzy bubble airy head that fades at a quick pace with mane small bubbles popping, very clear darker amber cranberry colored beer. 3.75

Nose brings plenty of malts, a nice malty aroma actually, reddish toasty malts, amber malts, a touch of a sweet candy like, a hint of toffee and some caramel, a bit of a juicy aromatic malt too. Nice malts but wish there was abit more than just a hint of an earthy grassy hops. 4

Taste starts more with malts but hops eventually kick in as well. Candy like reddish malts out front, reddish candy, caramel, toffee, little syrupy and pretty sweet, more sweet than I expected. Mild juicy malt, toasted amber malts, and hint biscuit. Then hops, grassy spicy hops mostly, a hint of pine in the background, and a bit earthy, with fair bitterness overall. Finish is sticky sweet and abit syrupy, a booze warmth kicks in which is surprising given the lower abv, more sweet candy lingering, toffee and caramel, a little spicy hop note and mild bitterness. 3.5

Mouth is med bod, bit syrupy and sticky, hint of booze on the end which is a bit weird, and decent but lighter carb esp for a can. 3.25

Overall mixed, it had a nice malty nose but lacking a bit of hop, the hop kicked in on the flavor but wasn't great, way too sweet and syrupy for what I expected, and that flash of booze? Overall OK but not a great amber IMO. 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.

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.

A: 1 finger light tan head. Excellent retention with thick lacing along the glass. Amber body.

S: Citrus, grains, and a little toast.

T: Caramel, leafy hops, toasted malt, and some citrus. Good balance.

M: Light-medium body. Soft carbonation. Somewhat smooth.
Lingering, lightly bitter finish.

O: Nice flavor. Great balance. Easy to drink.
This might be something we can use to rip Okies from the clutches of BMC.
