3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nothing about this beer really resonated with me in any way. It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t good. Just rather...there. I can’t really knock it for much. The beer smelled and tasted okay. Notes of mild hops and caramel malts in both the aroma and flavor. Easy to drink. Pretty forgettable in the long line of forgettable Amber Ales.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Biscuity fruit nose. Pure amber color, smaller head. Cracker sugar, mild bitterness. Massive carbonation, lighter body, malt finish with a quick bitter snap. Decent Amber, but not much depth.

Crushed with Jakebra. These guys just seem to specialize in mild yet inoffensive brews. Mostly sweet, but an okay hop presence in the finish. Drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at the Second Cellar Reduction. Pours a clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is light dogfood, dark earthy malt. Malty backbone with some citrus and hops. Well balanced I suppose, but not that enjoyable. On the bad side of average.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 Bright amber. Rotting fruit on the nose with some caramel. Light body. Light caramel taste, with some crackery notes. Tough to choke back a glass of this uninspired lameness, yo.
