Clear amber colored beer with a very slight white colored head.

Smells mildly of caramel a little bit of toasted grain with a slight tea aroma.

Starts out a little sweet with a toasted grain flavor.. Mild bitterness and a flavor of tea. Little bit of scorched sugar flavor.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall it isn't offensive but not that great either. A distinctly forgettable beer. Generic Amber Ale.

Appearance is attractive enough, with the red-amber brew topped with plenty of foam. Mouthfeel is sparkly and thin. There is not much malty flavor or even a dose of caramel. The bitterish long aftertaste is the main flavor. Dull and slightly browned cereal taste with a sourish note. Rather dry with a dirty touch.

This is not much of a beer, even for an amber. It's what gives Utah beers a bad name. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Emigration Market in Salt Lake City. Price was $3.50.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a clear dark golden color/amber, nice carbonation, tiny head, very slight lacing. The nose is of sweet malts, slight caramel, with some hoppyness. The taste is sweet, malty, with some slight hoppyness. Medium body, with a slight dry/bitter finish. Not a bad brew, but not sure if I will buy again.
