The color is a completely clear amber. A very slight white head sticks around for a minute or two before being reduced to a thinnish foam. Just a bit of thin, spotty lacing is left around.
The aroma is certainly thin and weak. Malts are in here but not the highest quality. Are there adjuncts in here? There's almost a corny sweetness before leaning more toward fruits. A bit of toast is here as well and a dusting of something herbal makes me believe that there's at least something by way opf hops contributed.
The flavor follows suit. Grains carry the day and a bit of something diacetylic lingers as well. It's not terrible, but it's below average.
Thin and dull, at least this light-bodied brew has enough crispness to not be flat.

If this is representative of these Tap Room 21 beers, I'm not sure I want to try the rest. Seeing them pop up at grocery stores everywhere, I hasd a feeling it might be a macro effort. Whatever else, it's certainly lackluster.

The nose is very metallic with stale grain and roasted barley tone. The flavor is a bit boring but I do get a barley graininess and an obvious honey sweetness. There's some really good elements in this but it never really exerts itself.

Pours either a light copper or a dark honey with a small white head that very quickly dissipates despite a lot of small bubble activity. The smell is a very straightforward caramel malt, with clear sweetness. The taste is similar, with a full taste whose body of flavor doesn't let sweetness dominate (though it tries.) The faintest hint of hop bitterness is present on the back end. Mouthfeel is very heavy, particularly for style, though I don't mind it. It makes what can be a reasonably boring style feel more substantial. All in all, an ok brew that plays up at its $6.99 price point.

Tap Room No. 21 Amber Ale from Novato, CA.

This beer had a sweet honey taste (overly sweet) - it says "honey added" on the bottle. A little too sugary for my liking. Even smells sweet.

I drank it out of a bottle from Kroger in Knoxville, TN on 12/22/2012 from a create your own 6-pack.

No.
