3.35/5 rDev -10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
poured from a 12oz into my eastern sierra lager pint glass, head is an off white tan coloring, about a finger on a standard pour dissipates quite fast and leaves lacing which retains itself well. Body is the color of caramel were it clear, looks more brown ale than amber ale to me, speaks for a malty brew I think.
The scent is pretty standard to be honest, woody hops and toffee combined with some sweet maple syrup mostly. Very mellow and refreshing on the nostrils although it does have the American Lager smell reminiscent as well.
The flavor profile is definitely standard amber ale leaning heavily on the malt for taste, spicing imparts a small contribution, curiously I don't pick up much cinnamon I get more nutmeg and Italian herbs (would go well with pasta I think). The malt gives it a sweeter more earthy toffee taste although its very subtle you can barely tell it's there.
The mouthfeel is the american lager with an added spiciness to it that keeps the palate refreshed and ready for the next sip. Definitely a sessionable brew with more flavoring than the standard macro-brew, I guess the overall grade is basically that it's O.K. and for about $7/6er it's not a bad deal.
