$5.00 for 12oz single, served in a flared pint glass
No ABV indicated
Sampled 09DEC12

[A] Pours with a large, 3 finger plus head. Sandy in color, frothy in texture. Retention is immaculate. The body has a dark amber hue - brown at the center of the glass with orange tints along the edges. Clarity is on the low end of the spectrum. Any would-be lacing comes clean off the glass eventually.

[S] Yeasty and overly phenolic. Fumes of plastic hide the malt and hop character entirely.

[T] More obnoxious off flavors. Mild caramelly sweetness with a touch of chocolate that manages an appearance on the very back end of the palate.

[M] Thick body with a lively bite of carbonation that grabs hold of the tongue immediately and holds on through the finish.

[O] Something went wrong here because this beer is bad. I mean really bad. Nothing but plasticky phenolics on the nose and palate. It's not until the very end of the finish until normal Amber Ale flavors come through.
