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.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy brown color with a 1/23 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, some hops. Taste is well balanced malts and hops, some caramel, but not as pronounced as in the smell. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall an easy drinking and sessionable beer.

Eh. Pretty uninspiring and typical. Not much going on that's memorable. Just a boring and lame amber when you get down to it.

Nice standard Amber Ale, but not noteworthy. A little disappointing given the exceptional IPA this brewer makes.
