2.66/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

350ml can poured into a little hotel tumbler

Pours clear coppery brown with a small pale head. Little or no active carbonation that I can see. Color is nice. Smell is almost nonexistent, just a little soap.

Taste is a little soap, and some bland sweetness. Some slight caramel. Overall, unfortunately watery.

Mouthfeel is thinnish and dry. Overall...not such a great beer. Not a repeat buy.

2.86/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and biscuit-like aromas. Taste is much the same with lots of watery malt flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer that has a decent smell but the flavors are pretty lacking.

3.35/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: The beer is clear reddish amber in color and has slight hints of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of caramel malts in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has light flavors of caramel malts along with hints of tea.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I felt that this beer could be better if it had stronger flavors and a fuller mouthfeel.

3.25/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a clear garnet red with some hints of brown in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall light beige head that reduces to an extremely thin film that covers the majority of the surface and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts with some light hints of dark fruit and tea.

T: Moderate to strong flavors of caramel malts with some moderate notes of tea. There is a very faint note of dark fruits and very little bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy and thin.

O: Well balanced as the beer is not overly sweet or bitter, interesting with the lighter notes of tea. Enjoyable but not a beer that I would run out to find again.

3.58/5  rDev +14%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 330mL bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: rich amber-red hue with a haze-free body and a good effervescence. Head poured one finger of frothy tan foam. Good looking!

Smell: sweet caramel malt aroma with a nice citrus bite. Nothing special, but nicely crafted.

Taste: sweet caramel malt flavor with a light bitterness and only the lightest hop flavor. Hops are a tiny bit citrusy and a little bit noble in character.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and creaminess. I like it.

Overall: a decent amber ale, if not spectacular.
