3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Bitter roasted malts. Clear amber with a thin head. Very malt forward, with enough bitterness to cut the cloying sweetness. Bit of spice and hops in the finish. Not my style, but I can appreciate this for what it is.

Went to a great steak house with no good beer. I had to settle for this. Not my style of beer.

Nice amber that has a bit of alcohol. Unlike the fixed beer this one doesn't have red malts, just amber.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - Has an almost weird poop brown cloudy color to it with a constant stream of bubbles and no head. The smell reminds me of my grandfathers dairy farm, no only hay and malt but the barn comes to mind too. As for the taste, rather plain and boring. Lots of malt on the palate and no hops. For my tastes not a good choice, lacks character and depth.

IMHO there is a big difference between amber ales and amber lagers, and I much prefer the latter. Riverwest Stein is a great example. Amber in color, malty and mouthy, but refreshing at the same time. Ales with a similar maltiness tend to be too sweet and less refreshing... must be something about the lagering.

Draft. Clear Amber color with tan head; substantial lacing. Malty aroma. Toasted malt upfront with a finish with biscuit balanced by bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a translucent amber with a 5mm of off-white foam head that diminished quickly to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation very high and fine. Aroma subtly of sweet caramel malt. Taste bland with some sweet caramel and a hint of hops bitterness. Light body, a bit thin. Light, smooth, sweetness, a hint of bitterness but fairly bland.

"i was intrigued by the premise of this all malt amber lager, but it was another miss. slight fart character to the aroma (nice, no?). the flavor was unique, but not good enough to make up for the otherwise unimpressive beer."
