2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
POURS: clear, light bronze colour, big white frothy head, sticky lacing; SMELLS: like a beer, fairly standard nose, a tad metallic maybe, wheat and yeast but not huge; TASTE: a tad bitter, hint of sour & salt - just a hint, dry; PALATE: medium to light body - nice though, good carbonation - spry, quick finish and a hint of astringency; OVERALL: a cautious brew, not notable for anything, make a nice session beer and would not get old, just does not impress.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle for this one. Not a classic, but a respectable "amber" that isn’t really an amber.

Fell for it again. I guess marketing works. Why would I think the amber would be different than the others? Pretty bland and pretty blah. Not again.
