Can dated 08/13/15 at TK Pizza in a shaker pint. WTF, how PP considers this an amber is beyond me. Perhaps this is the first session amber on the market. Very thin in appearance and mouthfeel. Little aroma and only a mildly pleasing taste. Never again, unless it's the only option from BMC.

16oz can poured into a pint, canned 5/6/15

A- pours a murky Amber color with a small white fizzy head that quickly disappears completely, leaving nothing behind

S- slightly sweet malt, a trace of citrus hop, that's about it

T- Slightly sweet malty base, a hint of grassy and citrus hop, grainy finish. Very bland overall

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- non offensive and easy drinking, but this one was pretty standard with nothing noteworthy

This pours a caramel tan on the glass.
The aroma has hints of a caramel sweetness with some faint candied orange and cherry characters. The flavor comes off with a caramel-candied orange note, followed by a somewhat metallic finish. Bought this on the strength of Pizza Port’s reputation, despite being an amber ale. Next time I'll know better.
