3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark amber/light orange with about 3 fingers of frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine and citrus with a hint of pear and some caramel. Taste is light bitter. Weak caramel with a bit of herbal hops. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. I would drink it again but wouldn’t seek it out.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hey, I thought I had this before, guess not. From a bottle with a twist off cap. Looks clear and somewhat copper in color. Smell is waffing alarming malts. Thin creamy head. Yez, malt carries over to the flavor but it is not over the top. Tries to be assertive but then falls back behing the malts. Goes down fairly easy and never really gets in your face. Better than expected. Probably would appeal to many lager lovers. Well behaved with a gentlemans touch. Overall, not bad. Most likely one of the better ambers I’ve tasted. Nice sizzle on the palate. Pretty good but not as good as
North Peak Siren Amber Ale, Olde Main Long Face, Atlanta Laughing Skull Amber Ale (2009 - present), or McKenzie Unicorn Amber Ale

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reddish copper, thin ring of foam. Faint aroma, I’m gonna say caramel. Caramel flavors, too. Crisp, dry finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. Clear copper with fully fleeting soapy head. Light spicy hoppy aroma but mostly just one dimensional sweet malt. The flavor is malt sweet with a light spicy bitterfinish. There’s a metallic character throughout. I want to like this because I drank so much Henry Weinhards in high school when it was $4 a six pack. Those were the days.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light hazy translucent amber with little to no head. Fruity, light hop character, toasted malt nose-pleasant enough. Flavor is lightly fruity, with a mild grassy bitterness, and a strong toasted malt finish. Not as bad to me
as some of the ratings suggest. It certainly isn’t a bright and full flavored ’American Amber’ but rather comes across like a more restrained and subtle English ale.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice red amber with a thin light tan head that fades quick. Taste is of caramel, malt, some fruit, some hops, some pine and a bit of resin. Similar aroma. The body is decent, a bit on the thin side. Easy to drink and a pretty good beer overall.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Name seems familiar...ah yes Full Sail’s retro/discount line. The aroma of this one is very subtle floral and somewhat tinny. Nice looking copper color. Tastes vaguely bitter and soapy. Light watery body, easy for quaffing. Apparently an attempt to make the least offensive ale on earth.
