look: 4.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a can into a nonic pint.
Look=Rich brown with a slight orange hue...at first I thought it looked near perfect, but a second look appeared too light and a bit off. Nice ecru head that reached a finger and lasted a minute or so.
Smell=Not much aroma at all...somewhat musty but also toffee.
Taste=Above average malt, somewhat sweet, some hints of hops...toffee with a hint of cherry.
Feel=Compared to others, this beer seemed a bit light in body and a little over carbonated. Sweetness lingers as well.
Overall=A decent offering that I might try again...more of a session beer than my favorite Amber Ale, Lakefront RiverWest Stein, and a decent change of pace.

12oz can poured into 16oz glass

A — Pours a deep coppery amber hue, little bit red around the edges. There is a cream colored head that forms on-top of the beer and leaves some mediocre lacing behind it.

S — Smell is incredibly sweet and sweaty, like the malt was put in a sauna and then into the beer, sweaty, malty, sweet, no real hop presence.

T — Taste is again focused on the malts, with notes of honey, light caramel, and it sweet overall, can't find any hop balance here, just unbalanced.

M — Light in body, with an oddly sweet and lingering finish.

O — Fine overall, just seems rather middle of the road, with no real defining characteristics or flavors.

Can from Jerry’s 27th St Market. Beautiful pour, nice fluffy head, clear caramel color. Rest is rather pedestrian, normal malty aroma and taste, a bit drab.

$1.89/12 oz can at Sicilianos. Brewed with Base malt, Crystals, Munich, Vienna, and Carapils. Hopped with Cascade and Nugget.
27 IBU's and 5.2% ABV per the can, OG: 1.056, SRM: 24

Pours out to a otherwise clear amber brown, forming a nice light yellow head with excellent retention and lacing, however there is a ton of particulate debris in my can, like someone added a big pinch of fish flakes. It looks like compacted highly flocculant yeast sediment. The nose is very good...great citrusy and earthy hop presence balancing nicely with fruity yeast esters and some crystal malts with a touch of grainy, bready biscuity notes. No off aromas, no DMS, low diacetyl. Mouthfeel is smooth and soft, easy going down with a medium body. Taste is very good...a great balance of bready biscuity malts, tons of hop flavor, a well balanced medium-firm bitterness, nice toast in the middle, and more earthy hops and leather in the finish. A touch of autolyzed yeast in the aftertaste.

An excellent, true to style west coast amber despite the clarity issues. I would definitely buy it again. Recommended.

12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours murky red orange color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of orange, grapefruit, caramel, toast, floral, grass, metal, and yeast earthiness. Poor aromas with off notes present, with light malt and hop notes; and weak strength. Taste of caramel, orange zest, lemon zest, floral, toast, bread, grass, light pine, and toasted earthiness. Light pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, citrus zest, toast, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Decent flavor balance of malt and hop flavors; with a watery feel and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very poor amber ale. Watered down and weird balance of flavors; but easily finished.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Clear red amber with one finger of off white head. Head leaves soon and leaves just a bit of lace.
Smell is bready malt and floral hops.
Taste is big hit of sweet malt with a leathery hop bitterness. Some iced tea and a touch of butter.
Mouthfeel is a bit fuller than average and the carbonation is slightly low.
Overall not my favorite Amber, maybe a bit more of a Red Ale.
By the way the website says 27 IBU and 5.2% abv.
