This amber poured a the average, decent color of an amber, but everything else about it was slightly below average. The smell was a weak maltiness and the taste was the same. It was pretty thin-bodied and overall not too drinkable. It was my least favorite in the five-beer sampler.

A: Clear, bright ruby-red with a tan head that reaches a decent height and leaves thin legs.
S: Muted aroma balances fruity and caramel sweetness, and little else. Maybe a ghost of hops to keep it from being overly bland.
T: A little more effort in the taste, some breads in with the caramel and fruit along with a bit of leaf.
M: A little light from middle to finish, hits a medium body for the most part. Finish keep an even keel between dry and sweet. Clean.

Pretty standard amber ale here. Pours a deep red while sitting at the bar at the BBQ in A2. Aroma of some caramel malt and sweet fruits. Flavor follows suit, though lacking a bit with some extra wateryness. Not bad, but Blue Tractor doesn't make anything particularly special that I have tried yet. Worth a try if you're there having some BBQ, excellent for washing things down when you are thirsty. Just not an enlightening beer experience here.
