Good if you like sweeter Ambers. Perhaps the sweetness hides the aroma a bit. Personally, the second time I bought it was not as good as the first.

Bottle. Amber pour with aroma and taste of mild citrus and malt. Tasted pretty darn good on a 90 degree day.

Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Nose of biscuit and apple. Grass, toast, maybe some toffee, and water. A touch of toffee malt flavor along with toast and bread. Grassy hops, water, and apple. Not terribly offensive, but not enjoyable either.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours with a minimal fizzy khaki head which leaves only a fizzy collar in its wake – beer should not pour like soda pop. Dull orange and garnet. Clear with no chill haze. Swirls fizzy and disappears quickly.
Generic orange sweetness in the back. Soggy lemon peel and zest. Bread on the verge of staleness. Wet and soggy with a bit of old orange and lemon and bread.
Fizzy mouthfeel and medium-light weight that reeks of stale bread and old brown spotted oranges. The finish is thankfully quick and doesn’t linger. A harsh bite in the back makes swallowing unpleasant. Watery.
A contract brew for ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, the white collar corporate peeps in charge of this bastardization of a craft beer project need a bit of schooling on what real and really good craft beers taste like. Blech. Suffice to say I didn’t finish the bottle.

Interesting. Quite bitter but not so in order to make it not refreshing. Very nce brewed and some good features.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lightish amber coloured body with some light copper tints. Aroma of pale malt, nuts, a touch of earth and very little else - very mild. Light-bodied; Strong soapy malt flavour with some older malt, a non-existant hop flavour and nothing but perhaps some nuts and earth - pretty bad. Aftertaste shows a hint of light caramel and malt - that’s it. Overall, a pretty bad beer - but that was sadly expected. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Harris Teeter in Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia on 03-February-2013 sampled a day later after a hockey game in Arlington, VA.

Not bad. It does not smell all that good, really just an ordinary taste. Won’t be buying anymore.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
When first opened, smell of light citrus mixed with light hop. Pours with a nice head. Leaves a nice malty taste and goes down smooth. Will drink again!

Very clear appearance for an amber ale. Mild malts and hops that blend together well. Very sweet.
