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.

Thanks to Beth and Alex for this one!

This one is a crystal-clear pale amber with a thin ring of head. Seems a little washed out in color.

This one has a bundle of marshmallow and red licorice on top of a sweet malt base, with just a hint of dryness. I'm not sure how "to style" this is, but I like it as I find the sweetness enticing and complex.

The same sweetness is there in the flavor, but it's more situated in the middle. This one starts extremely clean--almost flavorless--like seltzer water, but a lush, grainy sweetness blossoms out of it, soon fading to a rasp of carbonation. A bit of burnt sweetness lingers on in the finish with a touch of woody hops. The dynamism here is really neat, as each sip is a little trip from clean, to sweet, to burnt.

Feels dense and clean at first, but finishes just a bit on the sticky side.

I think this one is better than others suggest. I'm not sure how many of these I could have as the sticky finish gets old after a while, but I appreciate the novelty of the dynamism.
