On tap at the brewery taproom. Reddish amber body with good clarity and a durable off-white head. Good bitter-sweet balance. Ample light and medium malt flavor. Feel: a bit thin but this works OK with the medium+ carbonation and light dryness.

Chad9976 (1583) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 19A American Amber Ale

AROMA: Light caramel maltiness, a hint of butterscotch. No hops. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Mostly clear shade of dark amber/light copper. Large, white, frothy head. Good lacing and retention. 3/3

FLAVOR: Malt-forward palette, though not especially sweet. Mild caramel/toffee flavors and some dry bitterness in the second half but no hop distinctiveness. No flaws, but not much to spec. Way too mild. 10/20

MOUTHFEEL: Light/medium body; fairly crisp. Smooth and clean aftertaste. Too light for the style. 2/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: This is clearly a mild beer intended for a pedestrian audience. Succeeds as such, but not a great example of the style. 5/10

TOTAL SCORE: 26/50

Enjoyed from bottle at Morada Bay while eating in Islamorada FL. I didn’t take tasting notes, but this was just an average amber ale, nothing tropical about it.

Clear copper color, malty aroma , sweet and crisp taste, some hops but a little more would help balance sweetness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Amber color with minimal white head and no lacing. Light toasted biscuit aroma. Light biscuit malt flavor with some bitter bite in the finish. Watery mouthfeel and thin body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark amber from a tap. Slightly hoppy, more bitter than floral. A little unbalanced and watery. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

As someone who doesn’t drink a lot of ambers, this is good. Looks good, smells good, tastes good. Seems like a great textbook amber.
