Dark clear reddish brown colour with a small light tan head.
Sweet caramel malt, mild darkish hops, sugary sweetness and a hint of bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is sweet malt, mild bitterness, woody dryness and some mild hops. Very typical American Amber Ale.

12 ounce bottle .. . i have an aversion to ambers, but this was solid .. . malty sweetness is on point, very little hop bitterness .. mouth is mild but not scared .. a pretty boring beer but a solid amber .. . . The hero is commonly the simplest and obscurest of men.

Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
A syrupy, raw, vegetal, clumsy affair. Sad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark brown, almost black pour with a late forming light tan thick head. The aroma is a bit swampy and funky, even a bit smoky. It also has some pleasant malt. Flavor is grassy and funky. There is some light fruit and in general this beer is sour. Actually, it is the closest to a sour style as any Amber Ale I have had. Certainly not what I expected but it was fun.

12oz bottle on my daughters patio on 21st May 2016, into a Corsendonk tulip glass. Dark mahogany body, off-white wisp and collar. Malty blend with semi-sweet molasses ruling the nose and taste. Decent, but a bit ’one dimensional’.
