Medium brown, mostly clear. Medium white head.
Smells of dark toasted bread, earthy, citrus and pine.
Tastes solid, good strong malt base, toasted bread, light citrus and medium mouthfeel. It’s a good example of the style, it’s easy to drink and well balanced.

look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Serving type: 12 oz can into a snifter glass. Paired with a burrito bowl.

Pours a brilliant golden amber color with eggshell white bubbles that stick around. Smell is of caramel, slightly of toffee, along with a spice near the backend. Some citrus scents are prevalent as well. Taste reflects the smell. Initial caramel and toffee immediately lead into a citrusy hops bitterness, finishes with a lingering toffee taste. Feel is light, very refreshing for an amber ale. Overall, this is a really good amber ale that very refreshing. Going well with the California summer, way to make a boring style tasty!

Pours a reddish slightly hazy. Decent retention and lacing. Smell is light caramel, bready malt. Taste, initially is a mix of caramel, toffee, and bready malts. This is followed by just a touch of citrusy hop character. Good, crisp refreshing beer. A great summer drinker and a good job at a, typically, blander style.

12oz can poured into a pint glass. Date of 10/07/16.

Appearance: Pours a clear, rich copper with 1/4 of head that leaves plenty of lace

Smell: Toasted bread notes

Taste: Malty, bready notes leading to earthy hops in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body

Overall: This is a solid, well-balanced Amber. This style can be a mess if not properly balanced. Plenty of malt flavor with a clean finish.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Nice clear Amber color, thin short lived head and light lacing. Slightly floral smell. Decent malty, breads taste, a bit earthy. Not bad.

Week old Can into standard American Pint Glass
A: Clear, deep, burnt sienna copper with golden sunset highlights; 1/2 finger head dissipates to thin, sticky lacing.
S: A mild herbal citrus tingle over a sweet bready, carmel-toffee foundation
T: A clean, meandering sweet malt infancy maturing to support herbal hop midlife before a crisp citrus and a toffee tinged retirement.
M: Peppery carbonation through melted butter that fades into a slightly sticy finish.
O: If you're going to brew in Texas, you gotta have an Amber on the wall. I don't find ambers inspiring, but the good bear is the cleanest tasting execution in the state: with enough complexity yet approachability for the seasoned palette and the neophyte to enjoy at a backyard grill & chill session - if it ever cools off.

Pours a clear amber color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is very good. Slightly fruity aroma. Hints of caramel and grainy. Grainy taste with mild fruitiness, mild caramel and buttery. Light to medium bodied. Heavy carbonation.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
A: Pours a dark copper/amber color. A minimal white head forms with little retention and no lace.
S: Mild grainy malts, caramel, and then hops that is almost completely nondescript bitterness.
T: This is slow to develop, almost nothing up front, and then eventually some sweetness, and slightly buttery malts emerge. Again, bitterness hits and I can't really place it outside of that. Just kind of earthy and lightly grassy, if I try to convince myself that is what I am tasting.
M/O: A light body with crisp carbonation. Though watery and filmy at the same time. Given all that, this is very easy to put down. Something I don't have to think about when drinking, but is just kind of nondescript.

Average, but easy to drink and like I said I don't have to think about this. Which has its pleasure, but lacking in much of any character at all. Both Saint Arnold Amber and Town In City Amber are far superior.

Serving: 12 can (stamped "01/29/16") poured into a 7 oz Libbey Gibraltar glass.

Appearance: Deep, clear dark copper with a frothy head of off white foam and nice lacing.

Smell: Mild aroma of toasted malt and caramel, slight fruitiness.

Taste: Plenty of round, toasty, caramel malt. Enough citrus, earthy, grassy hops cut through the malt to keep things refreshing and drinkable.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, smooth feel and crisp carbonation.

Overall: A good dose of hops keeps this Amber drinkable and a step above more malt heavy brews.
