Thanks Robertdale. Light amber pour with a light tan head. Caramel malt and a little spiciness in the taste. OK beer. OK lacing..

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Location: 12 oz can (as pictured) from Buy Rite, 3/7/13
Aroma: The nose is buttery, with some caramel malts, a little wet paper, and some metallic notes
Appearance: It pours a hazed reddish color with a small off-white head and medium-plus lace
Flavor: The taste is pretty much the same as the nose, which is to say, not very good at all
Palate: The body is light-medium, it starts off okay, but the mid and late palates both feel unpleasant
This one is a total stay away for me. It didn’t work at all. Way way too many of the components of it seems like mistakes/flaws. Don’t bother...

Hops & malt nicely balanced. I always start my visit to High Noon with a pint of Annie’s before moving on to another style.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can.
Aroma: fruity, toasted malts, bready
Appearance: this is golden/ down right yellow, not amber
Taste: astringent/ husky, fruity, roasted malts
Palate: thin a little dry/ astringent
Overall: this needs some refinement, watch the astringency and this would be a nice beer.

Served at great american beer festival 2012. Really not a great example of an amber ale. Not great at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear amber with a weird nutty/grainy aroma with a touch of rusty caramel and some earthy funk.
Taste was weird and nutty with some earthy caramel and some leafy citrusy hops, which are very subdued.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a brownish/amber color. Smell is on the malty side. Taste is malts, an unusual aftertaste, can;’t quite describe it but somewhat unpleasant. Overall a mediocre beer.
