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.

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.

12 oz. (twist-cap) bottle:

Pours more clear golden amber than "copper". A thin white head dissipates to a wide wispy island. Minimal trailing lace.

The smell is of grain and honey.

The taste is of honey and caramelized grain. Sweet-leaning, there is a touch of non-descript hops to balance some of the sweetness in the washed-out finish.

Thin, rather watery, not too fizzy. Smooth enough to go down quickly. A touch of honey lingers a bit on the palate.

Not the cleanest or crispest lager. It's rather bland.

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.

Dark amber body; decent white, creamy head. Nice caramel scent. Sweet, sugary flavor; touches of caramel and hop bitterness. Medium body; warm; semi-sweet finish.

There is a tad too much sweetness in this beer, perhaps too much crystal malt, yet it's definitely drinkable. It is just not something I'd want to have more than one bottle per sitting due to sweetness factor. Otherwise, a fair enough beer.

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

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.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Neither amber or copper but a nice shade of yellow that kicks up a white cap with some lacing.

Aroma: It does smell nice.

Taste: Hoo boy this stuff is smooth. No, I mean it as a complement, the flavors of malt with added honey are well integrated and there are no rough edges. Problem is it doesn't really taste like beer at all but perhaps that's the idea. Taste is sweet, finish is clean, yet it makes me want to rinse my mouth out with some IPA.

Texture: Medium.

Overall: Another one for the no hops allowed crowd. I'm beginning to think punishment in Hell for people who come up with concept brews is being forced to drink the stuff.
