16 oz shaker glass at Urban Stack Burger Lounge. Can anyone explain why pints of this are being sold for $8 on draft??? Anyone? Moving on...
A - Clear amber / red in color, smallish off white head fades fast, little in the way of retention / lacing.
S - Malty, caramel, biscuit, sweet bread backbone. Clean, no esters, no hop presence noted.
T - Sweet caramel and bread notes. Some specialty grain presence that I can't quite place, possibly Special B. Light roasted notes and some pale chocolate. Just a hint of hops bitterness keep this from coming off as cloying.
M - Medium body and carbonation. Clean finish, with little aftertaste.
O - Middle of the road American Amber that leans more to the sweet / malty sie of things.
Serving type: on-tap

This is a very nice looking beer. Dark red / purple clear with 1 finger head and great retention
Smells nice too. Malty, sweet mostly but very nice. I really like the flavor profile on this one. Very nice malty sweet and bready upfront with a slight hop crisp finish. Very well balanced beer. Perhaps could be a tad thicker and sweeter in flavor but overall its pleasant overall. A very nice sessionable beer with flavor and highly recommend. Nothing mind blowing but if its at a pub, I'd be happy to order one.
