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.

This one poured a medium orange color with an off white head. Aroa was of caramel malt and grassy hops. Flavor was similar, moderate bitterness to keep it balanced but nothing stands out.

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

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2013
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
Overall Impression: 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.

Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 17, 2012
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.

jeremytoni (2926) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2012
From a can poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Light malty flavor with an almost tart lingering finish.

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

onceblind (3672) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2012
@ 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.
