I would say that this was just your run-of-the-mill amber, but actually I liked this one more than average.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours, well, amber from tap. Not much aroma to speak of but if you really really focus you might get some hop action on the finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the brewpud with willblake, thanks Jon. Poured an orange/amber body with a flulffy medium sized white head. Aroma is rather weak with slight grainy/grassy notes. Flavor is a bit better with notes of grains plus a hint of chocolate malts. Smoother body with an average mouthfeel and avverage carbonation. An okay beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At the brewery. Lacking the hop crispness that I like from most American ales. Malt and grains dominate this beer with a strong honey note.

Great beer. Nice gold color, great taste. Could probably drink a million of these. Try the growler!
