look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, a touch of caramel. Taste is malty, some hops are present, a bit of caramel, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and enjoyable beer.

12 ounce bottle

Pours clear, darker hued amber. Khaki head that stays. Leaves some larger bubble blobs as well.

Just a hint of some sweet malts on the nose.

Malty brew. Hoppy finish. With a few seemingly off notes. Bleh, not enjoying this one...looks like a drain pour about to happen.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter. BB date stamped May 2014.

Moderate size tan head upon pouring. Body is clear and dark amber. Dark for style.

Aroma: caramel, bready and lightly toasted malt aromas. A light spiciness hints of hops.

Taste: follows smell. Slightly sweet. Darker roasted malts, overall, than usual.

Feel: medium-low carbonation. Medium body

O: OK, but plenty of better ambers widely available.

330ml bottle - maybe more Hallowe'en worthy, but I didn't come across this one until this past week. Upon popping the cap, this POS gushed all over the damned table - always my favourite fucking thing.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium bronzed amber colour, with a measly two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and caked off-white head, which leaves some decent webbed forest branch lace around the glass as it slowly recedes - must...release...my...rage...thanks, Queensrÿche!

It smells of grainy, crackery caramel malt, dead yeast cells, overripe apple and pear, a hint of stale discount store nuts, and muddled piney, grassy, and weedy hops. The taste is semi-sweet bready caramel malt, ephemeral orchard fruit, a wee yeastie and beastie sourness, nut skin (meep!), and a plain earthy, musty, and mildly floral hoppiness.

The bubbles are actual pretty well-behaved after that egregious opening salvo, the body a stoic and acceptable medium weight, and more or less smooth, with a slight metallic yeastiness starting to horn in as it warms. It finishes off-dry, the plain-Jane caramel malt riding things out as if the River Styx were retro cool.

Well, my rancour for whatever the hell caused my desk to now smell like Mexican amber ale, has well dissipated - this ain't half bad, to tell ya the truth. Simple, sure, but no real off-flavours, and easy enough to drink, previous caveats duly noted. Too bad that this is priced at premium import six-pack levels around here - oh, right, that doesn't really matter to the Heineken and Stella crowd.

Pours a half finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is molasses and wet grains.
The taste is malty sweetness, and a sweeter finish.
The texture is medium.
A sweeter amber ale.

330ml bottle. Pours a dark rusty hued amber with a large beige head, good lacing. Aroma and taste is caramel malt, grains, light yeast, mild fruity notes. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finish is caramel malt, grains, some yeast and , moderate hops bitterness with a mild nutty flavor. Aroma and flavor seems to improve as it warms up, but need a bit more backbone. Overall an ok brew to try, not too bad.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light to medium coppery amber with a one finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of biscuit and caramel malt, grassy and mildly piney hops, a hint of nuts. Medium bodied with good carbonation. This series of beers has been better than mass produced beers, but not quite up to craft standards, usually adequate renitions of the style, but not too exciting. This one, however, was quite nicely done, a classic amber (approaching a red) ale profile with a very nice malt base supporting good hop flavors. Maybe I got a great batch, and I'm bucking the trend here thinking this was a very nicely done amber/red ale and one I'd buy again in a heartbeat. I'm pleasantly surprised.
