The beet poured a medium, clear amber gold. The creamy tan head aw about one and a half fingers high. It dissipates fast, but leaves good lacing.
The smell is earthy, grassy, malt and some caramel.
Tasting the beer , up front is a nice bouquet of flowery hops , mingled with some sweetness of toffee, actually very refreshing. In the middle more earthy flavors and a good malt backbone dominate. In the finish there are more grainy notes to round up the taste.
Nice brew, very drinkable and a good value for the price, $12, for a sixpack.

Having already had the Lancaster Milk Stout and enjoying it, I was excited to try the Amish Four Grain. Not a huge fan of the Pale Ale, I did try to keep an open mind. The Four Grain is good.

It starts off well with a more amber color than most Pale Ales. The body holds up well.
Has a bit of a banana like smell to it.
The sweet taste holds stay with you but is not overpowering..
Very smooth on the palate.

It is not your typical Pale Ale and one in which I would enjoy again.

Pours a brownish-copper with less than a finger of head. Apples and raisins are both present in the nose. Bready flavor, but on the lighter side (not in a bad way). Slightly sour on the finish. Complex.

Not your typical American Pale Ale, but very respectable nonetheless.

Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

Appearance: Copper color, faint white head faded fast. No lacing.

Smell: Tart banana, smells like a beginners home brew.

Taste: Tastes like a beer. Nothing remarkable. Slight bite on the finish, more carbonic than bitter from hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium to thin bodied, too much carbonation for the style. The level of carbonation should contribute to better head retention but it didn't.

Overall: Blah. Not bad, but not remarkable. It seemed like the fermentation temperature wasn't controlled. If someone poured this for me and I didn't know better, I'd think it was a mediocre home brew.
