Half-pint draft.

a - Pours a very light orange/golden color with moderate carbonation and small head with little retention. The lightest color of this style I've ever seen.

s - Faint malt aroma. Not much hops in the nose.

t - Some mild malt flavor but nothing stands out. There is a hint of hops at the beginning. Nothing lingers after.

m - Watery mouthfeel.

d - This is one of the worst examples of amber I've ever drank. The flavor is lacking all around and the mouthfeel super thin.

I'm really glad I only ordered a half-pint of this. Never again.

On tap at the Draught House in Austin.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is pretty straight forward with a lot of caramel malt. The flavor is a mix of caramel and toffee malt. I also get some chocolate, earthy and grassy hops and some iced tea notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
