A lot of caramel malt flavor, but very grainy and unbalanced leaving a metallic afterthought on the palatte. Not a lot to say. A very pedestrian amber. I have enjoyed other beers from this brewery, but not this one.

I hoped this would be an enjoyable session beer, but I am highly disappointed.
**I will note that this is markedly better on draft.

Portion of a 12 oz bottle poured into a Hunahpu's snifter. From notes.

A: Pours a clear amber/copper color, with a rather dinky-looking white head. Looks pretty good regardless.

S: All I pick up here is some unsweetened caramel.

T: The faintest twang of fruity esters builds to a caramel-y finish. Extremely unassuming.

M: Crisp, dry, and light. If you're going to showcase little in the way of flavor on the palate, this is how you do it.

O: Nothing wrong with this per se...it's just so bland, though. Really just one step up from BMC in my opinion.

Pours copper with a healthy white head. Nice lacing that sticks around. Not much nose, slight malt. Taste is well balanced but very light for my tastes. There's just not much there. A little toffee and malt, with a very understated hop finish. Not horrible, easily drinkable, just not that good.
