2.95/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Consumed 9/2/09- from notes.

Brown 12oz bottle poureed into a shaker glass. Bottled on date on the label.

A- Dark amber with a thin tan head that was gone so quick I wasnt sure I saw it. No lacing to speak of. Mildly active carbination.

S- Didnt get much here. A little caramelesque sweet hint was about it.

T- A little stronger than the nose, tasted pretty much like sweet biscuits.

M- Light body, a little too watery. The carbination wasnt very noticable.

D- Pretty easy to drink but not really worth the effort. I was torn between drinking iut a drain pouring it the whole time. I guess it would make a good session brew if the only other options were macros.

Not terrible but my rating reflects what it is; a mass produced red ale a la Bud's American Ale for the casual drinker to have something heavier and maltier AKA sweeter. Has a good seethru brownish red body with slightly tan head, but then a grainy caramel malt smell with somewhat medicinal hop smell. Taste is a little ragged and course with some sweetness and a slightly dry backbite w/ little hop flavor. Not bad but I will not be seeking this one out at all.

Pours a cooper, amber color without much head. The head does not stay too long at all. Lacing stays on top of the beer the whole time but does not stick to the glass.

Smell - Very muted but I did pick up some malt. slight notes of hops as well.

Taste - In all honesty, Not too much going on. Some smooth malt and finishes with a little bit of bitterness and carbonation. Not sure what other way to describe the finish.

Mouthfeel - Decently carbonated but definitely on the watery thin side.

Not one of the best Ambers I've had but its a decent beer. This reminded me more of a british style beer due to the malt and caramel base of this beer. Not bad!

Pours two finger cream head that fades slowly, leaving some lace. Nearly clear amber color. light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Pine and earthy hop nose and flavor is mild caramel, faint breadyness and light piney hops. Dry piney finish. 12oz bottle - gift.
