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. A really nice amber ale. Clear copper-amber color with a small head. Aroma was a toffee-malty aroma with hints of floral-hops. Taste had hints of toffee with a slightly sweet upfront taste and a slightly bitter finish.

Pint at the Terminal Bar. This is a pretty nice looking beer, clear red with a small white head. Aroma is biscuit and toasty with mild hops. I get suggestions of caramel and butter. The flavor is malt forward and a little crisp. There is a lingering sweet/buttery thing in the flavor but it’s faint. I can’t tell if it’s an off flavor or is just coming from the specialty malt. This is a fairly serviceable amber ale.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a copper golden color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is big of a caramel smell with a good showing of a bready and molasses smell accompanying it. Along with these aromas comes a little bit of a floral and grassy smell along with a tiny bit of earth. Taste – The taste begins just as the nose would have suggested with a big sweet caramel and doughty taste mixed with just a hint of a grassy hop. The sweet remains strong throughout with the hop growing stronger and stronger as the taste advances all while a bit of a floral and earthy hop comes to the tongue. In the end, with all the flavors transitions that have occurred, one is left with a rather sweet, but lightly hopped amber taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness, with a carbonation level that is slightly lower. A little thicker body, in conjunction with the lower carbonation, may have been slightly better for the malt and light hop, but overall the feel was pretty good overall. Overall – A decent amber ale with a nice easy drinking abv at only 5.25%. Not a bad brew and one to try if you get a chance.

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

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
