2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Bottle… Clear light amber ale with a small, creamy, taupe head. Subtle bouquet of cereal grains and caramel. Light to medium-bodied and watery with soft carbonation. Sweet, mostly nondescript flavor. Whispers of caramel, toffee and apple. Short, sweet finish.

Poors little white head, some toasted malt aroma with the hints of honey, sweet toasted malt honey taste with little bitterness. Something is missing to a right balance.

A little disappointing. Its not a bad beer but its not not all I wanted it to be. There is only a slight hint of honey flavor and it just barely lives up to the Amber name on the label.

Decent enough but nothing special. I like the hint of honey but it seems a little watery.

At ABC, 12 ounce bottle, didnt pour amber, but had a lot of malt flavors close to an amber, touch of honey and apples, interesting take on an amber.

Out of a bottle, but not too bad. Thes a malty aftertaste and possibly a hint of chocolate hidden.

Bottle from a Save-Mart. Pours more gold than amber. Small creamy near-white head. Very, very light aroma of caramel. Med body almost. Flavor is light caramel with some sort of light hoppy bitter. The finish is sort of that way. It’s balanced, but there are so few ingredients that that seems inappropriate to evaluate. But it’s way, way ahead of the macro lagers!

Holy crap is this bad. Reeks of macro. Bland cardboard, weak mouthfeel, and winey sour taste of rice and corn adjuncts. Did they even use a hint of hops? Even a hint? All grain taste of what there is if any. Almost completely aroma free. How? Some people would probably want to know how you could make an amber with literally nothing behind it. Hideous.
