Amber Ales have a hard time pleasing me, I often taste a little taste and wish there was more taste. This is pretty good, it has a little more body than a typical amber, a nice hops profile and most importantly looks great poured into a glass. If only it tasted as good as it looks. The smell is dull, but I prefer it to a Sam Adams.

Clear, caramel color. Starts with the bitterness of the hop which quickly gives way to a fruitiness.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pils glass.

Appearance: Pours dark copper brassy color, airy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Moderate carbonation drifts lazily upward.

Smell: Toasty caramel, raisin, sweet buttery bread. Smells sweet but pleasant.

Taste: Uh oh. Bland with off-flavors. Was my bottle five years old? Faint yeasty sourness up front, vaguely floral, the sourness just washes over the whole flavor profile. Unfortunately this tastes pretty bad.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thin and watery. Gentle scrub from the carbonation. Faint warming from alcohol.

Overall: Yikes man, this one's a stinker. Avoid.

Got this on tap at One Eye Jack's in Lockport. Good, mild flavor. Very drinkable, not too heavy. Definitely would get again.
