Found this at my latest trip to Trader Joe's. Presented in a 12oz brown bottle. Poured a clear dark amber color with a minimal fizzy white head that vanished down to a tiny cap. No lace.
Smell was all malt; a mix of buttery caramel and toffee with notes of brown sugar and molasses.
Taste was pretty much one-sided in favor of grainy malt and sweet of brown sugar and molasses. Virtually no hops throughout. Had a vague veggie aftertaste.
Feel was light- to medium-bodied, smooth and slick.
A truly average amber ale. Completely leaning toward a malt character with a minimal hops presence. Nothing I'd return to unless offered to me.

Reddish brown color. Small white head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A medium bodied amber ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are spicy and slightly bitter. For an amber it’s a little sweeter and a little drier than the average. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is bitter.
