Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel, orange, hazy color with two fingers of khaki-tan, frothy head. Pretty serene, albeit hazy underneath the head. Minimal wet lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.50)

Smelled a pleasant whiff of caramel, toffee, floral hops, unknown spicy notes, faint chocolate, sweetened iced team, lemon zest, herbal hops, plum juice and some overall roastiness. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted not quite as good as the nose, but good for an amber. Earthy rye hops, sweetened iced tea, roasty caramel, toffee, herbal hops, sugary floral notes, honey, light menthol and faint spicy Mexican chocolate. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.50)

This is a very good representative of an American Amber. Would have it again for sure. (Overall - 3.75)

Not the best amber I've had but it was the best amber option at yard house so I have it a try. I prefer the downtown brown.

I had 2 of these beers at Dogtober Fest in Dunedin, FL last weekend. It was a very good amber and I really enjoyed them. I am going to buy more in the future!
