2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark amber with a small fading head.
Nose shows caramel with very soft spicy notes in the background. Very faint aroma.
Flavours are very similar; caramel and soft bready malt, along with a little honey.
Could use more carbonation.
Pretty devoid of hops seeing as they call this an American amber ale.

500ml bottle. Looks good in the glass and has tempting aromas as well. Dull amber almost copper colour with a light sandy flat head. Biscuity caramal malt aroma dominates. A little light on flavour with a moderate amount of bitterness. Reasonably light in the mouth and on the palate.
