2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Buttery toffee malt aroma. Amber with small head. Mildly sweet toffee malt and bitter herbal hops flavor. Not horrible but not a fan of the flavor combination.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought this at VG’s market in Brighton Michigan. Nice copper color when pouring, although not much head. Aroma of malts and a faint caramel, but hardly any hops. Malty and caramel flavor, still no hops. Being at 5.2%, it seems pretty light both on palate and taste.
At 99 cents a bottle, a few of these could easily go well with an outdoor, late afternoon summer BBQ.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma pretty faint. Surprising hop notes that nicely balances the sweet malts. This beer had a refreshing quality to it that I enjoyed.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty thin, watery; not much flavor. Slightly malty, more like a lager than a decent amber. Hardly any hoppiness. Aroma is malty, bready. Not terrible but not one I’d seek out.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a rusty color with a bubbly white two finger head. Very transparent. A bready nose covers up a faint caramel smell. Taste is mostly malty with a slight hint of hops. Almost no hop flavor. Palate is very thin and watery. Overall this is not a great beer but for a buck it might work in a pinch.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A traditional American amber with a balanced profile that showcases mild caramel malts while letting the fruity ale yeast do its magic. Hops provide nice juicy notes with enough bitterness to balance. Pours a clear amber with a small one finger small bubbled white head. Clean and a good sessioner with greazy pizza.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a thin off white head. Relatively flavorless and inoffensive, with some light malty sweetness and relatively low bitterness. Not awful.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an amber color with a off white head with light lacing. Smells of light malt, caramel, and pine. Tastes of caramel, toffee and a good hop presence for an amber ale. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Overall this is a good amber for the price and one of the better beers I’ve tried from Henry Weinhard’s.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is weak with adjunct malt, yeast, and grassy hops. The appearance is amber with a small had. The taste is like the aroma with a nice caramel malt quality finish. The palate is average. Overall an average beer.
