3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s Aroma of bread with hints of caramel. Nice light brown/orange color. Taste of cereal, toast and bready yeast. Just enough bitterness to balance the sweet malt. Rich mouth feel. Sweetness lingers for balance. Light bread aftertaste. A surprisingly enjoyable amber ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from my aunt the day before Thanksgiving. Oddly, the bottle says it’s from River Trent Brewing Company in CA. Pours a medium orange, basically amber color. About a half finger of head. Aroma is slighty malty but not much else going on. Taste gives off caramel and toffee notes but leans heavily on the malt characteristics with a hoppy finish. A thin, watery mouthfeel. Almost reminds me of homebrew. Not a compliment. This cow should jump over the moon and stay adrift in space forever.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Slightly hazed amber-brown with a small off-white head.
Bready, watery, caramel malt scent.
Taste is slightly sour, doughy, caramel...
Light, but rather harsh and unpleasant.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Lactic caramel malt aroma. Amber with minimal head. Very lightly sweet toffee malt and mildly bitter hay flavor. Light, watery body. On the plus side, nothing unpleasant but pretty boring.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a big fan of Ambers but this is a pretty easy drinker. Not big on the palate but smooth.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"pretty much what you expect at 5.99 a sixer. decent malt backbone and some floral hops in the aroma. balanced but malt leaning flavor, on the light side, with an unassuming body."

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought this at Trader Joe’s. Cheap 6 pack. Wanted to try something new. Just like 2 buck Chuck, this beer is very palatable and easy to drink. No frills, but pretty solid.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from TJs. Nice amber color and average beige head. Hard to pin down the aroma, a little malty. Tasted a little like lemon iced tea, a little grassy. Pretty thin. Just ok.
