Poured out equal parts orange and amber, maybe a little brown thrown in to round things out. Aroma was a nice sweet lightly bready malt aroma, with the slightest hop tickle, pretty nice, especially considering the usual way to get me to rate aroma higher on an amber is to just dump a bunch of dry hops in.

Taste, back to ordinary, no off flavors, no depth, but pretty standard crystal and caramel malt presence. Hopping is average and fair. Easy enough to drink, but not going to impress your hardcore beer nerd friends, this one is more geared towards others, maybe waiting to make the leap.
