look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Amber-tan, medium hued body, lightly hazed with a sporadic, sudsy, off-white head.

Smell: Atop the foundation of caramel edged, toasted bread maltiness is hop scents smelling a tad woodsy, a bit spicy, with some pleasant citrus fruits notes.

Taste: Toasty malts, with a sweetness of caramel with maybe a hint of brown sugar. Faint apricot. Spicy, citrusy hops with some grapefruit showing. Medium bitterness - it doesn't knock you over, but, it is enough to provide for a semi-dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Neither too sweet, nor too bitter, it's a well-rounded amber ale.

Pours a hazy light amber with a beige head that quickly fades to head at all.

Aroma: Earth tones, some spicy floral scents and a little bread.

Taste: There is some caramel along with some distant citrus. Kind of flat, and overall lacking.

Has a dry finish with the absence of bitterness. This is part of a 3X4 variety pack I purchased for $17.29. Their Cooter Brown selection was slightly better than this, however, so far, better beer can be purchased for far less.

On tap in Brookhavwn GA
Light brown with s good head. but limited lacing.

Flavorful for style, particularly with regards to the malts.
Èxcellent sweet/bitter balance. Near even malt/hops balance.

Medium body and carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

O: recommended version of style.

Overall a poorly brewed Amber due to a strong cardboard flavor that overwhelmed the palate.
