look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: It's a dark red and amber looking beer, thinly foamed at the top.
Smell: It has a pleasant grainy, toffe-like aroma.
Taste: It has a malty, caramel taste with a mild bit of sweetness and fruitiness.
Mouthfeel: It feels like a medium-bodied beer, having moderate carbonation.
Drinkability: It seems sightly watered down, but is fairly smooth and easy to drink with or without food.
Overall: I'd say it's a solid red ale.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
