1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Rated on 02-07-2016 (Can) The appearance is a medium sized beige head that mostly diminished, opaque ruby body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is some citrus and caramel malt. The flavor mimics the aroma along with tasting old and thick. The mouthfeel is thick and sour. This beer is light bodied. This beer taste old as if it’s been on the store shelf for way too long and lost its characteristics. This was disappointing since I like amber ale beers. This beer is one of the worst tasting beers that I have drank/rated.

Can: Well it is more hoppy than the norm and is less sweet, really it is not your standard Amber Ale at all but more akin to a Bitter. So being better that most in the genre make it noteworthy or something I would want again... hum NO.

On tap at Cafe Tu Tu Tango, Orlando. Pours pretty flat, deep reddy-amber colour. Very reminiscent of an English bitter, slightly woody, with a late hop note that could have done with being a little more obvious.
