Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Dark amber color. Slight caramel sweet taste. Leaves a slightly hoppy but mostly caramel aftertaste. I have had it on draft also and thought it was much better but that is usually the case for most beer.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a clear texture. There was a half inch of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Average lacing.

S: An OK aroma of malt, light hops, and grain.

T: Tasted of a fair amount of malt and a little hoppiness up front with a massive blast of grain and a bready quality in the finish. The grain is very overpowering and doesn't allow the other ingredients to shine.

F: A fair amount of carbonation with a slightly harsh finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is definitely not my favorite amber. The flavor is just far too uneven for it to be successful.
