Too toasted for me, in aroma and flavor. Still drinkable, but nothing too exciting. Not very flavorful.

Amber with a small white head. Earth. Caramel. Nutty Cardboard. Bland. Inoffensive. Does the job but very plain.

Tap @ Sporting News: awful excuse for an amber ale. Resembles a thick dark lager. Doesn’t even compare to something like Mac & Jacks African amber. Nice looking off white head. Grapes aroma and bowl of Cheerios aftertaste.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a light to medium cloudy brown with a small off white head. Smells of caramel and butter. Tastes of caramel, butterscotch with a mild hop bitterness. Finishes dry. Really thin. Will never drink again.

Bottle - Pours amber with a creamy head. Sweet aroma of caramel and bread, not bad. Semi-sweet taste with some berry and slightly off finish. Average at best.

Drank from a pint poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a nice amber color with little carbonation. Has nice aromas of caramel. A decent amber leaves a very sweet taste on the tounge. Purchased as part of a twelve pack sampler with vanilla porter, lucky u IPA,and summer bright ale.

"a standard amber...well balanced with caramel and nutty malts, and a touch of citrus and bittering hops. nothing stands out, but nothing was off either. one of those i’d have again if it were offered but wouldn’t buy."
