12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 5/11/2016. Pours clear medium orange/amber/light copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, honey, brown sugar, toasted bread, light nuttiness, light citrus/apple fruitiness, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Okay aromas with some dark/bready malt, honey, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with decent strength. Taste of caramel, honey, brown sugar, toasted bread, light nuttiness, light citrus/apple fruitiness, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Minimal herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel. honey, brown sugar, toasted bread, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Solid robustness and complexity of dark/bready malt, honey, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/grainy mouthfeel that is good. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Slight diacetyl presence. Overall this is an okay amber ale. Decent robustness and complexity of dark/bready malt, honey, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. This was pretty bland and needed more hop presence; but was fairly tasty and enjoyable otherwise.

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.
