3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is light, but I can sense some citrus and hops. Decent mouthfeel...a lot of carbonation. Flavor is good. Starts a bit bitter (citrus) and hoppy and finishes fairly sweet and malty. A good amber ale.

Bottle. Nice deep, clear amber color with huge offwhite head and lots of lacing. Aroma is malty and fruity. Taste is sweet with just a hint of bitterness. Medium body and moderate carbonation with a slightly oily feel. Not bad overall.

Gorgeous color - light amber. Mild aroma - not a strong hoppy aroma. Refreshing taste. Nice amber ale for summer.

At Heathers in Springboro. Immediate caramel taste with a slight wheat taste that finishes with a hint of hops. And a sweetness that stays with you.

On tap at Dan's. The pour is a little bit of a darker amber color with a thin head and no lace there. The aroma is very malty. There is a hint of roast, but the malts are holding down the fort. The flavor is surprisingly bitter for an amber. I like how it goes from the sweetness of the malt and flows through a decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is really thin with notice carbonation and leaves a forgettable lightly dry aftertaste

Bottle at home. From notes. Absolutely average beer in every way. Nothing offensive and nothing that great.
