Handsome dark amber color, but brief coarse foam. Some pleasant, slightly sweet malt taste with a nice roast flavor. After that the hops make an appearance and linger long. The malt is mellow and caramel flavored, with a slightly rough hoppy edge to give it some balance. A touch of the leafy and herbal but overall a decent aromatic hop flavor.

Unfortunately, this is nearly dead flat after a couple of minutes, which doesn't add to the appeal. It might be quite drinkable in better condition. From the 12 oz can bought at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.

No hiss from opening the can. Pouring the liquid makes me question whether there was a leak, but then the bubbles start to show. Nearly no head, but the rim retains some bubbles throughout the tasting. The liquid is dark amber and crystal clear.

Decent biscuit and light toasted malt nose. A touch of caramel sweetness. No notable hop smell.

Less malt presence in the taste but there's a definitive hop bite. The body seems thin and flat. The swallow is bitter in a black pepper sort of way. The aftertaste is dry and short.

Overall, this is a drinkable amber with a good hop bite, but the flaws detract.

A - Thin bubbly head off-white head over clear amber body. Head quickly dissipates but leaves some nice sudsy lacing.

S - Bready caramel malts

T - Amber malts are sugary and fruity; apricot, caramel, and biscuits. Very slight earthy hops show up in the after taste.

M - Medium/light body with moderate carbonation. While it's slightly sticky, the body is overall fairly thin.

O - Not a bad drink but also not too memorable. While this is very drinkable it also doesn't offer a lot complexity or bold flavors. meh

Slightly hazy amber pour with a thin head. Mildly sweet malty taste upfront. Body has malt, bread, caramel and a slight hop taste. Finish is smooth and creamy.

App: Dark umber like color with a beige two finger head that retains fairly well and leaves sticky thick lacing all the way down the glass. Little bit of sediment, may have been can conditioned (?).
Smell: Breadiness you would expect from this style of beer but with more hoppiness than say Fat Tire. Subtle gingerbread like aroma, sweet but not over powering. Not super complex in the nose.
Taste: Some malt sweetness up front, but quickly overpowered by slap of hops that is both citric and floral. Some acidic bite, but lacking the bitterness of a PA or IPA. Very well balanced but not all that engaging. Expect more lingering and heavy malt from an “amber ale” (Yes, I know it's a made up style) Easy drinking. Would be a good introductory beer for the craft n00b in your group. Honestly tastes a lot like gingerbread, but not artificial. A good session beer.
Mouth: A little light bodied for an amber ale. Okay carbonation, but could maybe use a little more. A bit on the flat side.

Pours into a standard pint glass a copper/bronze color with a fluffy one finger white head that leaves multiple rings of broken lace behind as it settles.Chocolate malts stand out most in the nose not the big hops the can promises,mild earthiness is detected.Chocolate and fruity malt flavors dominate with some mild pine resin in the finish,again the can promises big hops and the malts dominate.It's not a horrible beer but it's basically a standard amber with a big chocolate elemant,not big hops.
