3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is malty but kind of weak with a slight spice from hops. Pour is amber, of course, with a white cap. Some beatiful lacing. Medium body. Average carbonation. Flavor is quite rich with malt. Drinkability is high. This would be a great beer for a beer connoisseur or a light beer guy and everyone in between. Smooth and flavorful.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy amber with minimal head and lacing. Nose is a biscuity malt with caramel, and just the barest hint of lemon and other floral notes. Taste is sweet malt and just a bit of spice on the end. Light bodied. Very easy drinking. Not the greatest beer in the world, but it’s affordable and good with a pitcher, pizza, and friends.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Âmbar quase translúcida, espuma amarelada de boa formação e média persistência, boa aderência. No aroma malte caramelado, leve amadeirado. Paladar de leve dulçor, baixo amargor. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final mantém o caramelo e malte sem muita variação, um leve amadeirado, mas nada fora do normal. Desce fácil mas sem destaques.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear deep gold with one finger of creamy ivory head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: biscuity caramel malt, nutty, grassy/herbal, very slight butyric. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, odd-dry medium finish. (3/5)
Was slightly shocked to discover I had never actually formally reviewed this one before. Fairly meh-tastic - and that’s after correcting for my general disdain for the style. Don’t get me wrong, it’s pretty easy-drinking, and despite my noting a slight butyric, it’s not actually offensive: it’s just not very interesting. Got this as part of the “Fat Tire and Friends Collabeeration Pack”, and I wish I could say I hold out high hopes for the others (I mean come on, collaborators include Allagash, Avery, and Firestone Walker) - but I don’t, much.

Bottle in Seattle. Pale, clear brown amber. Creamy head. Pale sweet caramel malt. Pale, watery amber, odd bitter butterscotch and malt tea. I abhor the style and this is kind of the quintessential American macro example.

Its sweet, dark, caramel flavored, nutty, reminds me of what I tend to think brown ales taste like. Not a great summer beer. Maybe better in the winter. I guess I don’t understand what an amber ale is gonna taste like but this seems wrong.

Tja, det här var väl helt okej, dock hade jag kanske lite högre förväntningar än helt okej. Smaken var rätt torr och bitter med toner av torkat gräs. Balansen var bra och kroppen fyllde sin fuktion, så att säga!
