Bottle into an ale glass. Pour is a dark honey amber. Aroma is weak but malt. Taste is a wash and on the low side but clean. Finish is crisp.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount, 4.4%. Amber and clear appearance with a nicely retained white head and thick lacing. Mild aroma of toasted grains, pale malts, caramel, toffee, light chocolate and light hops. Similar flavor, malty and smooth, mildly sweet and a touch of earthy bitterness. Light, soft body, pretty clean and easy to drink.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. amber with small head. caramel malt with some nuttiness. no discernable hops. a bit underwhelming. when you describe your amber ale as subtle, that’s a clue you’re doing it wrong.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed June 13, 2014.
The appearance is a light amber color that leaves the same color body with a two finger white foamy head that dies at a moderate pace leaving some light clingy foamy lacing.
The smell has some biscuity malt, super muted barley, and light caramel.
The taste is bland through previously mentioned flavors with a muted sweet aftertaste and dry slightly sweet finish.
The palate is light, sessionable, and the carbonation seems to be spot on for the style and for me.
Overall, uh... just not a very good taste, I was pretty disappointed with this one for me, though I would say only decent for the style.

Bottle to pint glass. Pours a nice amber with a thin head. Very weak hops aroma. Taste has a touch of malt but nothing really jumps out. Not bad at all

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: very clear light amber color, pours with a small beige head that dissipates quickly
Aroma: creamy, very faint grain, very faint aroma
Taste: some grainy smokiness, has a slight smoke finish, reminded me of dr pepper for a second
Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, has minimal aftertaste
Overall: this is very bland and watered down, this is my third beer from this brewery and I’m not very impressed, it is highly drinkable
