a: Clear dark amber with a finger thick white head which receded to patchy surface foam and spotty lacing.

s: very mild bread

t :Some sweet bready to slightly caramel malt over light bitterness.

m: light to medium, ok body, lots of carbonation tingle.

o: A pretty good warm weather amber, a step or two up from a premium mainstream amber. Very sessionabble at the apparent Utah mandated 4% maximum for grocery stores, where I got this

Clear and copper with tan head of weaker retention. Aromas are very faint. Grains and caramel. To the palate, malt and caramel at first and throughout, caramel and herbal, somewhat grassy or citrusy, and almost peppery hops as it settles and finishes, comparatively clean mild herbal and rindy aftertaste. Lower end of medium-bodied, too thin in my opinion for this dark of a beer. Medium level of carbonation, only slightly prickly. A little crisp, a little smooth, not very dry.

Pretty standard American amber ale/red ale. Poured a red/light brown clear liquid; 1 inch cream head that dissipated to a thin bubbly surface; some lacing. Smelled like sweet malt and some hints of bread and caramel biscuits; the initial sip I sensed a combo of sweet and mildly bitter toasty malt/hops, the aftertaste was sweet caramel biscuit-wafer malt. Mouthfeel was thin and light, borderline watery. Not very dry. Just a mediocre beer that is good to drink when thirsty.
