3.4/5 rDev +1.2%
More of a golden orange in color than a Amber. Very little head, and what is there fades to just a skim quickly. Nose is faint and has a bit of a murky stink to it. Flavor is very hollow and is missing the real malt backbone that I look for in this style. Overall it just fell short for me.

Served on-tap in a tall pilsner pokal at Reel Seafood (Albany, NY).
A: Dusky brown-amber with short cap of off-white small-bubbled head with decent retention and a collar of lace at the top of the glass.
S: Aroma is subdued to say the least with some medium crystal malt caramel sweetness, pale malt graininess, and herbal, earthy hops notes.
T: The flavor is solid nothing more, delivering the middle of the road amber flavors you expect. Nice moderate caramel sweetness up front cut with herbal, lightly citrus hopping. Nice clean beer with no esters. I don't get any of the diacetyl that others have reported, although it does finish a bit sweeter than I like. Low bitterness.
M: Light-medium body with reasonably soft carbonation and not a very dry finish but not bad.
O: Pretty average run of the mill amber ale. Good not great but clean and inobtrusive.
