Poured a deep amber with a smallish head. Sweet malt aroma, taste of bread, and a smooth finish. Not complex, but a nice smooth beer that I would have again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the local Costco. Pours a clear darker amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is malt-dominant, with some toasty caramel in there. Taste is toasty and slightly bitter, which surprised me, and almost no residual sweetness.

Tea and chesnut nose. Tea colored, medium tan head. Mild nuttiness, barley. Fairly clean despite this being an old bottle. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Somewhat malty aroma with some soapy notes. Not a complex beer but enough malts to make it drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dull brownish amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is malty, floral, slightly fruity, with a bit of toast, nuts and vanilla. Taste is floral, malt, light stone fruit, some caramel, and hop bitterness. No actual hop aroma or flavor. Finishes a bit thin and the bitterness lingers a little too heavy. A bit of a weird chemical taste? A super malt-leaning pretty boring amber.

Best by: 10/27/11
A: pours amber with brilliant clarity and a single finger of creamy head which falls to a broken sheet of the same. No lacing.
S: Sweet malts. A hint of bitter hops. Really syrupy smell. A small amount of chemical astringency.
T: Sweet, malty. Really no character to this beer. Tastes like the Pale Ale, which tastes like the IPA, which tastes like the Amber.
M: Medium body with moderate carb.
O: whatever. Great to have around the house for people you don’t respect (in-laws).
Serving type: bottle
