Given to me by a friend, who apparently has fond memories of it from a bygone time.

A: Light amber with a finger's width of fluffy white head that is fed by a seemingly never-ending stream of bubbles from the bottom of the glass. Leaves a fair amount of lacing on the edges

S: A malty sweetness and cereal grains. Not a whole lot going on for this beer in the nose department.

T: Tastes rather like it smells: malts and grains. Better than a BMC lager, but flavor profiles are the same. Lacking in complexity.

M: Mouthfeel is relatively light with moderate carbonation. Again, thoroughly average.

O: Meh. Not a terrible beer, but not one that I'm anxious to drink again. I've had any number of beers that taste more or less the same, and I don't generally drink those either.

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.
