2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Originally reviewed: 4/23/09. Pours a darker gold with very little head on top. Retention is lacking as is any sort of lacing or webbing. Smells of corn, biscuits, and vegetation. Reminds me of a lager...
Mouthfeel is nice and crisp which aids drinkability. Flavor is of buttered corn, malty breads, and finishes slightly bitter. Is this really an Amber Ale? Everything about this tells me this is a lager. Weird. Drinkability is surprisingly high. It’s a good thirst-quencher.
This beer gets low scores by my judging it according to style. As an "Amber," this is horrible, but as a "beer" this is actually pretty good. If this was labelled as a lager, my scores would be much higher. Get your styles right, Flying Monkey!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
355 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: hazy light amber with a decent light tan foam.
Aroma: Fruity caramel, slightly nutty and earthy, slightly old apple juice, kinda sweet and malty, some biscuit malt notes, a touch tight due to serving temperature.
Palate: Medium body, creamy effervescence with a few sharp bubbles.
Flav.: Sweet, malty and fruity, light caramel, earthy/nutty notes, more fruitiness, sweeter than the nose would imply, a bit British, not bad but not terribly interesting; off-dry with minimal bitterness and a pleasant and simple sweet malty finish.
Meh, not bad.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear, moderately dark amber with orange hues. Aroma of dried fruit, cooked vegetables, leaves. Flavor is grain, bread, leaves. Finish is of corn and has a sour taste. Not too good

Sampler at the pub. It poured a copper color, with a small white head. The aroma was some subtle malts and hops. The taste was about the same as the aroma. Not bad, not what was expected.

Murky dirty yellow in appearance Almost no head. Dusty malty aroma. The malt comes through in taste but doesn’t save this disaster!

Ceral, malty aroma. Clear, pale to medium brown without a huge head. Sweet, malty, lightly hoppy. Finishes off slightly metallic. Gets sour as it warms. Nothing special. On tap, Flying Saucer, KC.
