looks quite like a farm field honey. Adequate froth doesn't hold real well, but the lacing is complete before it tears politely.
Smells of whole wheat crackers, and whole wheat bread with molasses.
Tastes of hard toast, and sourdough english muffin, again toasted dark. Add a dollop of beer jelly, and a little ovaltine on the side. This has a superb mouthfeel that is straight down the middle: thin but full. Has a great cocoa flavored biscotti taste with a dab of apple jelly. There's some minerals in the aftertaste, part dark roasted grain, and perhaps some drier hops.

Poured from its silver can, this amber ale offers a nose of caramel malt, toasted malt, and molasses. Its color is orange/copper and the body is completely clear.
This beer has a flavor that leans toward the sweet side, with tastes of caramel, bread, light roast, dough, toffee, and a touch of brown sugar. The hops impart a slightly herbal character, although they are buried behind the taste of the malt.
This seems like a basic amber brew with enough going for it to recommend, but not enough going for it to strike an emotional chord or otherwise stand out in one’s beer drinking memory. I warmed up to it more with repeated sips and I now appreciate this beer for what it is- an everyday amber beer that is non- pretentious and agreeable, even if not exceptional. Some may say it is underwhelming, but it does have enough going for it to recommend.

3.19/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25
Light, transparent, orange-amber color lager. Soda-like head on the pour with little retention.
Fresh, malty aroma with hints of citrus fruits and fresh cut grass.
Slightly roasted malt flavor. Almonds and toast. Touch of caramel. Rice and corn adjuncts. Mild herbal hop.
Light body. Descent carbonation. Grainy texture.
Ok, but just doesn't have that much flavor or body. Fairly refreshing, however.
