This beer is getting panned a lot as a "meh" beer, but when I was at a convention last week at the SD convention center, it was a welcome alternative to BMC beers. I didn't pour it into glass, but it appeared to be clean inside of the bottle with a nice neck head. It smelled of citrus hops, biscuit malt and nuttiness. Similar taste, with a great malt nutty backbone and finished dry. Average carbonation and drinkability, makes a great summer beer when you're looking for just a little depth in your beer.
Overall, it's a solid beer. It's inexpensive and worth drinking.

A 12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint glass.
Appearance - Nice copper color. Amazing clarity. Big tan hear that fades quickly. Minimal stickage. A fine looking brew.
Smell - Faint malt nose. Sweet. Slight hint of burnt toast. Not overwhelming.
Taste - Malty. Sweet. Slight hint of burnt toast. Walnuts? The hops are almost nonexistent.
Mouth - Syrupy.
Overall - A malty, sweet, smooth Amber ale with just a touch of nuttiness. Simple and honest. I appreciate the fact that this beer is a a true Amber Ale (so many California Amber Ales are loaded with hops). Your Coors Light chugging buddies might be able to appreciate this beer.

Deep amber to reddish in color. A light bit of white foam covers a small bit of the top of the beer. Light aroma of caramel and amber malt. There's a taste of amber malt with very little play from the hops. There's not much in the fade. The body is a bit light for my taste.
