3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours amber. Small white head. Mild aroma of toast and caramel. Flavor is caramel. A bit of roast in the mouthfeel. Relatively mild palate. This is a nice light amber and at 4.5% very drinkable. Probably something you use a stepping stone to bigger beer. Overall decent, but not memorable, even for an amber.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice orangey amber color, like that of a sunset, with a thin collar of white foam. Aroma shows a lot of caramel, though the overall impression is dry. Flavor has hop flavor and good malt as is in the aroma with a very nice and complex profile with a rather intense hop flavor and dry malt competing into a long finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber in color. Little aroma, just a touch of malt. The flavor is a bit of malt, a bit of hops, a bit of brown sugar.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out to a very attractive amber in the glass. Looks to be filtered as it is quite clear. Aroma is that of bread dough and light yeast. The taste is that of malt with a hint of fruit thrown in for good measure. Not as flavorful as Bell's Amber, but its may be more drinkable. An easy session amber if there ever was one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Copper amber color. Grassy hops with a little cardboard tinge. The hops are not overpowering. Small beige head that quickly dissipates. Crystal clear with no particles floating. Light watery mouth feel. Nothing special.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler. Pours a golden, amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is light malts and mild hops, not a strong aroma. Taste is thin and lacking, a little watery with a malty base and mild hop finish. Refreshing in the summertime I guess.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Why can’t the big beer companies brew their beer like this one? Pleasent aroma lasts.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber with a thin off-white head that quickly evaporated into the ether. Aroma is heavily malted, caramel, and something unpleasantly medicinal. Taste follows with loads of toffee and a hint of bitter, grassy hops. As with the aroma, there’s something off that corrupts the finish. MBC is a local brewery, so I’m always rooting hard for their success. Unfortunately, even with hometown judging, I can’t rate this higher than simply mediocre.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a very drinkable amber, good if you’re going to have quite a few sitting around and shooting the breeze. Pleasant nuttinees.
