Ok. Pours a nice dark amber. Nose like an IPA. Hoppy and a little citrus aroma. Taste is a little flat without much depth, but ok. A little caramel and nutty flavor.

Solid Amber Ale. Color is good. Nice nutty/caramel flavor with good carbonation. Crisp finish. Solid and would welcome another round

Had this on draft. Dark straw color, cloudy appearance. Lacks hop bite up front. Full malt flavor but a bit too sweet for my taste. Stronger hops would let me rate this brew higher.

Three strong and distinct flavors roll through the mouth at every sip. On first taste, you are greeted by an intense malty sweetness, which soon gives way to strong fruit notes. This is strange, because I could not exactly pin what fruit, but it’s definitely fruit. Just as you are finishing with the fruit, a slightly dry, bitter ending comes to remind you to take another sip.
I was very surprised when I was almost done with this brew so soon after I started.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-amber color with some head and good lacing. Clear, dry hops evident in smell and taste. Honey and a decent toasted malt presence. Prefer other ambers, but certainly don’t regret this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not their best, but still an overall quality amber ale from a Class A brewer. Finish is a little off imho.

Not an impressive beer. Its a standard amber. Malt, slight hops, subtle bitterness. The Laura Bell is 21 sticker is what made mine special.
