Don't be confused by the title Amber because the color is more of a golden or copper color taste strong but a one-finger head with slowly dissipating bubbles slight lacing pretty simple beard nothing too great nothing too bad certainly middle of the road but not outstanding by any means

Irish Amber pours a copper color, with a small, but long lasting and lacing head. Grainy cheap aroma. Taste has a nice mellow crisp malty aroma. Nice body and feel. Overall, its a nice beer not great. Nice creamy malty taste, that finishes very smooth.

Slight clouding in the light amber body. It is gold tinted as well with a moderate amount of slightly creamy head. Decent retention leaves small sticky lacing. The aroma has a hit of diacetyl up front with a bit of caramel malt in the back. The diacetyl faded a little. The taste is similar but with more caramel malt. It is light bodied with a small amount of carbonation and a lighter dry finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

APPEARANCE: A fairly clear amber/orange with a finger of quickly dissipating white head. Moderate amount of bubbles rising. Leaves some mild lacing down the glass.
AROMA: A bit of a skunk like smell. Maybe wet grains. Some caramel malt.
TASTE: A little bite initially from that sulfur note, then it straightens out and you get a mild but pleasant caramel malt sweetness.
FEEL: Medium carbonation and medium light body, drying on the finish.
OVERALL: Be something to sit at the pub and tip back a few while the game is on.

This actually isn't too bad. Not much there in the aroma department. Appearance has a long lasting thick head. Flavor's the highlight with a nice, slightly toasty malt, a bit sweet, toffee, caramel, just enough bitter and tang to balance. Very drinkable. Pleasant finish.

there's really nothing about this beer to make it memorable in any way. it's amber, like lots of beers. it's grainy smelling. flavor is extremely mild. decent carbonation, but even the lacing disappears quickly enough that you don't remember that it was in the glass.

i wouldn't buy this one again, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with it.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, sugar, hint of alcohol, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight hops, hint of sugar, hint of pale malt, and slight caramel malt. Overall, average appearance, aroma, body, and feel.
