On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is on the lighter side with some grainy caramels, hints of bread, and touches of earth. Flavor is better, but pretty simple. Clean caramel malts with a light grainy toast and a light earthy bitterness. Dries nicely before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium, malty feeling body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty basic, but well made Amber. Clean and malty with a light earthy bitterness. The aroma could use some work, but the flavor was alright.

Served in a frosted mug. I let it warm, but still could barely smell anything. The appearance was nice as it was a slightly hazy copper. There was a slightly yellowish head on top. The nose was sweet caramel and fresh baked dough. The taste was yeasty, bordering on tart. There was some raw potato and grassy notes in the finish. I know this is a safe style, but this one just didn’t have a lot of character.
