3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a perfect pint. I’ve been to Jackie O’s many, many times and tried many, many beers, but this one along with most of their normal lineup have been overshadowed and forgotten during my trips. Thus, this is my first real endeavor into the usual.
3.0 A: Mildly hazed copper amber color. One and a half fingers of frothy off white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.75 S: This smells like I want amber ales to smell like. Big toastiness up in the forefront with sweet caramel malts playing an almost as powerful supporting role. Grassy hops and a touch of earth to round it out.
3.25 T: The taste is good, but it lacks power and needs a stronger malt base. Toastiness, caramel, and grassy hops again, just not enough.
3.25 M: The mouthfeel is also lacking. Light to lighter medium body. Very lightly creamy. Needs more body and creaminess.
3.25 D: It’s decent enough, but I’m not surprised that no one has ever said, "Here try this," while I was at JO’s drinking much more interesting beers.

9/24/2015: Amber in color, but ths beer is just another beer for me with nothing really standing out other than a floral hoppiness and dull flavor overall that I just don’t care about. Draught at R.P. McMurphy’s Pub in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Pour from a 12 oz can at Hocking Hills Dining Lodge. Amber brew with off white head. Aroma of light resinous hops. Taste is mild malt up front with a grassy sour hops finish. OK.

Can via alexsdad06. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. Pale and toasted malts, mild floral hops, faint bitterness, and a quick finish. Balanced and quite drinkable.

Canned.. Hint of citrus with a malty taste. Light and mostly malty. Thick not very light. Reminds me of a German style ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz can, slightly hazy dark red-orange pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toast, toffee, some red fruits, touch of vanilla into a bit of lemon peel. Taste was a mix of lemon, grass, yeast into a bit of bread, slight spicy notes, finishing slightly bitter. Not bad.

Maybe the best Amber I've had; malty with a touch of hops and a biscuity finish.

Pours Amber. Smells yeast. Mouthfeel is light. Tastes More of a Pilsner than ale.
