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.

This is the stinkiest beer I've ever had. On the good side, the beer has a cool label, silly goat. On the bad side, the beer smells and tastes like a mulch heap.

Had a pint at the draughthouse.

A - Light orange. With a very small head that disappeared almost at once. Not sure why they call this an amber.

S - faintly malty with some caramel, minimal hop aroma

T - Best way to describe it is watery. Very little carbonation and a slight malt sweetness.

M - Light and crisp.

D - It goes down easily because there isn't much body, but the lack of complexity or much flavor doesn't really make we want another.

Thirsty Planet is a new brewer, so maybe this will improve with time.
