3.12/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Served on tap at the brewpub. By the time it got to me there was only scattered head on top of an ambery red body. The second pint had a nice frothy soda-like head.

S: Light crisp malt features prominately in the nose. A touch of sweetness. Very biscuity.

T: Very biscuity but fairly hollow. Some bitterness in the background bit no hop flavor. Kind of a mess and too bitter to be an Irish amber.

M: Light bodied.

D: This is not a great example of the style. It's also not very good in general.

A - Clear amber-red color with a finger of frothy off-white head. Some good head retention, reducing to a thin layer with some lacing.

S - Aroma has some lightly toasted caramel malts. There is some bread and spice in the background for a bit of balance.

T - Starts off with some light toasted sweet caramel malts with some sweet flavors in the background. There is also just a touch of spiciness in the background. Through the middle some more roasted flavors come through along with a touch more of spices and some biscuit. The finish is a blend of the caramel malts and a touch of spice that lingers. Finish is a bit off.

M - Medium bodied with moderate lively carbonation. Fairly smooth and crisp. The finish feels a touch off compared to the rest of the beer.

D - Pretty drinkable. Nice blend of flavors with the spices. The finish is a bit weird and a bit too heavy/full compared to the feel of the rest of the beer.
