355ml twist off. Amber pour. Smells like a freezer burnt walmart ice cream sandwich. Falvor has light smoke, caramel, vegetal hops, slight bitterness, mint, metal. Not great.

Better head. Same great graphic. Dark amber. Thin toffee in a moderate malt scent. A little burnt. Starts towards metallic, flows smooth and gets the metal back in the finish. Burnt toffee gives it a bit of a Skor bar taste. Sweet enough but flavour gets tougher and dirtier as you go. Stop worrying about need for more hops and less metal, instead looking for a drain. But then the next sip says maybe you can finish.

minihame2 (225) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 8, 2015
Pours clear, reddish copper with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma with grass and citrus. Tastes like an IPA without the bitter bite. Soft mouthfeel, decent amount of carbonation. An ok beer.

cheap (4292) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Looks pretty good, like a lighter dark lager. Darker than most ambers. Smell is a little tart metallic. Yes, not a bad dark beer at all! Better tasting than expected as far as the dark side goes. Quite well behaved I should say for an ale. As the session continues a tad of that bitter astringent thing starts to buid on the sides of the tongue. Yes, not bad overall but that medium astrigents bitter thing on the finish gives it a 9 overall.

llcooldave (1142) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Clear copper amber in color. Nutty toffee nose and a touch of wet cardboard. Basic amber ale taste. Light on the hops, toasty malt and a nutty finish. Overall, easy drinking brew...

kapusil (661) - HUNGARY - NOV 13, 2014
0.355l bottle. Amber body, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toast and a touch of floral hops. Taste of caramel, toast, a bit of floral hops and roasted malts. It’s more like an English Bitter than an American style amber. Not sure why it got so low points. It’s an OK beer.

reebtogi (4447) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that has decent retention and leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with some grassy notes and hints of coffee. Taste is a floral hoppy bitterness with a light caramel malty sweetness. A decent amber ale, but nothing really special here.

unclemattie (4284) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
330ml twist-off bottle. Deep copper color. Toasted grains, oxidized. Tastes of fizz, water, boring cereal. Very Mexican. (4231)

hotstuff (4303) - Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Rated on 7-04-2014 (Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized smooth off-white head that is mostly lasting, amber transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is caramel malt, fruity and spicy. The flavor is semi-sweet, caramel malt and fruity. This beer is medium bodied. This is a session, but not one that enticed me enough to want again. The flavor is blase and lacks character.
