Draught in a pint glass

A: nice amber color. Not much of a head but I didn't pour it. From what I do see looks off white and frothy. Some lacing but mt alot

S: I'm getting a lot of crisp malt with a slight copper smell.

T: very drinkable, pretty malty but nothing to insane. All around its an average amber that doesnt stray too far from the flavor point you would expect.

M: nice and crisp. Refreshing, not too carbonated.

O: all around decent beer. True to the style but lacked any distinctive features.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Copper penny colored with white pillowy foam. Crystal clear through a standard pint glass

S: Caramel, toast and a spicy hop bite in the nose

T: A moderate earthy bitterness that blends nicley with the solid malt backbone. Bread crust, toffee and caramel from the malt. A slight mineraly flavor in the finish, but nothing stands out distinctly

M: Clean and crisp. light body with moderate carb

O: An easy drinking Amber with a good malt forward profile. I've had Ambers that run the gammet of being so bitter they were basically an IPA to very sweet and malty. This was somewhere in between and being a lager made me want to drink another pint. Prost!
