A pinkish red amber in color, thin pinkish white head, left quickly,
S sweet malty, hint of salty
T sweet, bready, "beery"
M lots of carbonation, malty bready after taste lingers in roof of mouth.
O Pretty standard/vanilla (un-unique) amber, not too special, but not bad. Had on tap at the Big Fish in Grapevine Texas.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours an amber color with a thin 1 finger head. Head goes away quickly. Not a lot else to say, looks like an amber.

S: Malty on the nose, slight sweet caramel. Takes a bit to warm up and unleash the aroma.

T: Sweet malty taste. Goes down quick and easy. Surprisingly has a bit of a bitter taste as well.

M: Medium bodied and carbonation. Has a resiny aftertaste.

O: Very solid above average amber, interesting to have every once in a while. Easy drinking beer, great session beer. Having only one on the day, I'd reach for something a little more interesting.
