Disgusting, I was half in the bag and I still couldn't stomach this wretched brew. It had a sever case of skunkiness with an awful after taste. The best part was the appearance, everything else was horrid. Avoid at all costs

Poured into a pint glass.

3.5 A: Clear medium orange color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.

2.75 S: Grainy with some toastiness. Some sweetness underneath that prevents this from being clean.

2.5 T: Again grainy and toasty. The sweetness found in the nose is way more powerful than in the taste. It's like a sickly corny sweetness that makes this beer hard to drink.

2.75 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess without much smoothness.

2.5 D: Not a good beer. Nothing else really to say.

12 oz bottle poured into sniffer glass.
A: pours a shinny copper color, medium khaki color soft foam head that quickly fades, carbonation present and bubbles sticking to sides of glass, no lacing present
S: since it is a copper lager brewed with honey, it is the first aroma that I detect, it is a an orange blossom honey aroma, caramel, bready malts
M: thin, smooth
T: sweet caramel malt, orange blossom honey, biscuit, kinda sweet finish
O: easy drinking brew, sweet finish, really enjoy the honey aroma

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours out a crystal clear appearance, that of a shiny, new penny. No appreciable head formation, though.

Smell: A meager pale maltiness, scantly bready with a thin layer of blonde caramel and cooked apples.

Taste: Sweetish, initially, with a blend of honey and light caramel, giving you a sugary start. Touch of (baked) apple. Bready, pale malts. Near nil hop character or bitterness. Drying with a bit of the yeast on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: Definitely lacking character, here. It could have benefited from a bit more crispness and a bit less sweetness.

A - light amber with a soft, loose, white head that fades quickly

S - caramel malt, sweet

T - caramel malt, marshmallows, some sugary sweetness

M - medium bodied, crisp, a tad overcarbonated

This is identical to the Tap Room Amber Ale. My guess is that it's the exact same recipe but with different yeast strains. If there are any differences between the two beers they are subtle and I've missed them. The head retention on this beer may be 10 seconds better than the Amber Ale. So overall my final statement is the same as the Amber Ale: inexpensive and easy to drink.

Poured out a clear, copper color with a small, short-lived head of foam. It smelled of caramel and toffee. It was sweet (a little too sweet) and malty. Not much hop bitterness, at all.

Sampled this evening on 10/5/15. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere" pint glass.

Doesn't have the alcohol content listed so I am guessing around 5.0 -5.5% ABV. Brew pours a medium amber in color with a thin white head. Some minor spotty lacing was seen when sipped. Aroma is of sweet malts with a hint of honey. Pretty much is said for the taste with a hint of floral hops also. Pretty smooth overall. Isn't a bad brew but nothing special either. Lighter side of medium-bodied with lower carbonation.
