COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This delightfully floral American style Amber Ale displays a wonderful balance while still maintaining a profound hoppy goodness. We load this beer with a ridiculous and obscene amount of West Coast hops that are added late in the boil resulting in a hoppy beer without any bitterness.

Grabbed a six pack in Frisco at the local store. A decent amber, slight sweet aroma. The flavor is very smooth and easy drinking. Not too much hops or bitterness.

Can. Clear amber. Floral and malty aroma. The taste adds toasty malt, caramel, and acidic, vinous booze. Not very good. Wouldn't recommend this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. can from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, amber color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: biscuity, grassy hops, light caramel. Palate: average carbonation, slightly cloying texture, light body. Taste: sweet caramel with slight nuttiness and grassy and slightly soapy hops coming through on the end. Overall, not a very good beer.

Can from beer of month club. Pours an attractive ice tea color with some foam. Good retention. Not much on the most - slight malt and floral. Taste is very light - some malt, sweetness. Easy to drink. Very simple, but pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one might as well be sweet tea. Not too much character as this one is malty but unsure of what kind. Not my style.

Terminus (3342) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Can-from beer of the month club Pours deep amber hue with a small soapy white head and some rising carbonation from the middle of glass. Nose is earthy, very toasted, lite piney hops, herbal and slightly earthy. Almost seems like an organic brew. Flavors are strong piney/earthy herbal hops up front with lots of toasted grains across the board. Finishes very earthy/herbal with some strong pine/resin. I feel this beer is actually pretty good for the style. Its a hoppy amber, but not like something like Hop Head Red or Marble Red. This is a good old-school amber with a boost of some hops. well done and this is not a style i really care for. very nice amber in my book.

CervezaCabeza (46) - Le Mans, FRANCE - FEB 25, 2015
Pours translucent amber with a generous ivory head. Lacing is pretty clinging to the glass. Aroma is piney and malty. Very bitter in a pleasing way. This is a good hop forward amber ale.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit. Taste is malt, caramel, citrus, and fruit. Not too sweet at all. Easy to drink.

Nearly undrinkable, sadly. The bottle states that the beer is well hopped without any bitterness, but I found a prolonged bitter finish, like synthetic chemicals, that really ruins any possibility of appreciating this ale.
