12 oz. can. Clear amber body with a small off-white head. Smells of bready malts, some caramel, and some floral and fruity notes. Tastes fruity and floral up front. Sweet bready malt backbone and some light bitterness and toasty malts in the finish. Medium body. Drinkable. Just not an exciting beer.

I've had this beer on 3 or 4 occasions, and its tendency to give me a hangover more than the average beer certainly influences my rating. That said, it's not bad taste wise but it's not amazing either. At $10 a six pack it's not really a a great choice. I'm one of those beer drinkers who doesn't mind paying $7 to $8 for an amazing beer like Trappistes Rochefort 10, yet at the same time I still enjoy a cold Bud Lite after mowing the lawn. I confess I don't see the point of a beer like West Sixth Amber Ale, which is fairly expensive but not really all that special. Go big or go home, I say.
