Pours a hazy brownish amber with a light malt aroma. Taste is sweet with a little bitter offset. Mouthfeel is creamy. A little too sweet

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This one pours a decent looking hazy amber color with a half finger white foamy head. The lacing is really light.
The smell had some burnt caramel malts. It seemed really light on the hops.
The taste was kinda bland as the malts didn’t carry much excitable sweetness. There was an extremely dry finish.
On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in body and has a semi-sessionable aspect to it. The carbonation seemed fairly smooth.
Overall, this was just an average Amber ale to me.

Bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangish pour. Very nice caramel nose. Off white head dies quickly but leaves spotted lacing on the glass. Surprisingly watery mouth-feel. Nowhere near as hoppy as I expected (or as they advertised!). Quick finish. Not too shabby overall, but certainly some room for improvement.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma: Mostly bread with a little caramel sweetness; hop presence is almost entirely muted. Appearance: Watery copper pour with a patch of white head that dissipates into a very small patch. Flavor: More caramel than bread; has a very lean and muted feel; hops missed the bus. Palate: Light body, slick texture, average carbonation, astringent finish. Overall: Not a particularly memorable beer; there are so many better ambers out there.

Malt, sweet taste. Not what I expected from the looks of it but it wasn’t too bad. Would like to try more Weinhards brews.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle - Amber pour, caramel and grainy malt aroma... the flavor is mostly sweet with caramel and bready character. The hops are quite mild. It’s strange to see the commercial description read "strongly hoppy". Certainly not. It’s not bad.

12 ounce bottle. Just saw this is from Oregon and hope it was not from Hayduke for a bottle share. It is already open! A little haze in the amber beer. A smallish beige head and active carbonation. A sweet malty aroma. The flavor has those malts along with some hops that are a bit off. The hops are floral and not at all big. There is some bread, cereal grains, and yeast along with honeysuckle.

pours a clear amber with a thick creamy off white head. the aroma is sweet, citrus, floral hops. the taste is very nice, you taste the malts and slight fruitiness/sweetness. there is a mild hop presence and overall quite enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thid ivory head, with some lacing, over a clear dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is cereal, light toffee/caramel from the malts, light herbs from the hops, no esters....taste is cereal, light toffee/caramel sweetness from the malts, hints of bitterness from the hops, no pine, resin, minimal esters, finishing with a lingering slightly astringent off taste....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high giving a soda quality. This is a simple, boring, neither bold nor assertive beer. It needs more complexity in both the malt and hop backbones. The final off taste finishes this beer. BJCP 6/3/10/3/5

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Certainly looks like a good amber. Faint malt nose is promising. Unfortunately the taste comes off as pretty average. The malt continues to be faint throughout. A bit watery. To quote another rater: boring.
