3.35/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours an amber color(imagine that!) with very small off white head that quickly dissipates. The smell is faint and bready.

The taste is thin, with a bit of tealike caramel malt with hop bitterness in the finish. This is probably more hop than malt which is suprising for the style. As there isn't much flavor, the alcohol taste is very apparent.

The mouthfeel is very thin with medium carbonation. The drinkability is somewhat high due to the light body and no off tasting flavors.

Overall, this is an average amber that I wouldn't turn down but wouldn't go out of my way to purchase.
