This was brewed by Matt's in Utica. The rating is probably not applicable to west coast Kirkland offerings. Kirkland Amber Ale is a nice brew tending toward maltiness that is an easy drinking bargain. I hope Costco and Matt can get together and make more of the Kirklands available in the east.

Good looking beer when you poor it out of the bottle. Nice clear color and a good head.
The head quickly dissipates. The nose is disappointing. Smells like a cheaper beer.
Flavor is not that great either. Almost metallic aftertaste. You get what you pay for.
