Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head. Caramel and toffee malts with a lot of toast and bread on the nose. Creamy sweetness, minimal hop profile, just a bit of a floral note. The flavor is a touch watery, but decently sweet and malty. Some toffee, caramel, and toasted bread. A hint of metal on the finish. A bit of grass, too. Surprisingly decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I never expect anything special from this style (Amber Ale), but I have an open mind (read "loose"), so I’ll give it my fairest shot. It pours a dark amber/brown body with a modest tan head. The aroma is sweet and caramelly with a touch of floral notes. The flavor is more of a dirty caramel/toffee taste, a touch of pome fruit, and a solid earthy bitterness. It won’t be a "go to" beer for me, but it’s an okay drink.
