Bottle someone sent me a while back, Im thinking Mr. Pickles. Thanks! A fine amber ale, nothing special, but when is an amber ale really that special anyway?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big thanks to BeerFMAndy for getting a box of New Glarus out to me. Served in a New Glarus taster glass.
Pours a nice reddish-amber with an off-white head. Pretty good retention but not much lace on the way down. The nose has some soft bready and amber malt with some light citrus hop notes coming through afterward. Flavor is fairly subdued, but easy-drinking, with a combination of bready malt and American hops. Medium body with good carbonation and a semi-dry finish.

Pours a copper color, little bit cloudy, small white head, good lacing. Aromas of cherry nutmeg, grapes, and some allspice. Taste is clove, nutmeg, dark fruit, strong malts, yakima, winter spice in finish. Drinkable and a little bit warming. Pretty good.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of toffee with a little bit of dry cocoa mixed in. The flavor is similar. I get some toffee and chocolate notes, as well as some caramel and some grass from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
I liked this beer, I just didn’t have too much to say. A fairly straight forward amber ale.
