2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear, almost ruby amber with a large beige head, fading to a film. Simple malt aroma with a bit of cider to it. Flavor weak, vaguely malty, not much there in the beginning, a bit of wort and tea in the middle, some cidery elements and a bit of bitterness develop towards the finish. Thin body, somewhat carbonated.

A typical amber, didn’t jump out at me as anything special. I would choose something else on their tap list.

Not a fan. Still haven’t had much luck with Ambers. Stale aftertaste is probably the worst of this one’s bad qualities.
