3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal clear and dark copper with a rapidly receding white head. Light toasty aromas are complimented by caramel notes, no hop aroma. The light flavors of this amber make it very approachable and drinkable but there is a slight metallic note, finishes with a delicate bitterness. Mouthfeel is very light and despite the lack of head there’s good carbonation.
It could benefit from a more malt-forward profile, but this beer finishes clean and is extremely easy drinking.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Transfer from BA review on 7-19-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deeper golden color with a big white head. The head a moderate to low level of retention, but gives some nice lacing on the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of some roasted malt with a good deal of sweetness. The malt is of a roasted biscuit and bready smell while the sweet is largely of a toffee like smell in nature.
Taste – The beer begins with taste of roasted malt and some caramel. The roasted flavors are lighter at first and get stronger toward the middle of the taste. Toward the middle a toffee takes the place of the caramel as the sweetness becomes more buttery. With this transition the result is a slightly sweeter brew. At the end a pleasant sweeter roasted biscuit flavor is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body is on the lower side in terms of thickness and creaminess and was a little watery. The body could have used a bit more thickness to accentuate the roasty flavors. The carbonation level of the brew however was quite average and fitting for the style.
Overall- It is very light and easy to drink with a nice not too sweet, but sweet roasted flavor. A brew that makes for a decent session beer.

Pours a deep golden color with a short eggshell colored head. Nice looking beer. A bit of a creamy banana nose. Wet, yet crisp texture. A bit of a creamy flavor with the beer’s fruitiness. Doesn’t drink much like an amber.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label doesn’t list the abv on the label but there is a short description of the beer. It also appears to have a best before date system which marks the date with a small notch. (It was note notched however)
Appearance: The body has a nice orange amber color with a smooth creamy off white head. The head holds on well and makes some slick lacing on the glass.
Smell: It has a light overall aroma with mild toasty and nutty maltiness.
Taste / Palate: The flavor has an easy drinking malty character with mild sweetness through out. It matches the aroma with light nutty toasted and bready notes with a touch of light hops for balance.

In can @ Residence Inn Baton Rouge. Good aroma, but didn't pour into a glass. Flavor is good with some nice malt notes. Very drinkable on a hot summer say in LA.
