eh...not too impressed with this double pint. kinda low class amber here...cloudy amber color, non-offensive malty nutty flavor and aroma, but pretty generic and simple.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aluminum can from SqB Liquor: Liquid poured a burnt orange brown hue while a forthy head develops quick but quickly retreats. Aroma is sweet with sugary caramel liquid malt extract like home made beer and nothing to be proud of. The beer is just as bland in regards to its flavor but there is a harsh presence of alcohol that makes this taste cheap, although, Iam extremely pleased with only paying $1.50 for a 32 oz. aluminum can,plus points. Not sure if this was supposed to be an abbey belgian amber hybrid or what the heck was going on. I would really like to know the ABV on this, minus points.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Sicilianos (MI) served in a snifter.
Despite a rather vigorous pour, I didn’t get enough head to completely cover the amber body. Moments later, even this is gone with only a bubbly ring left.
Light and simple but pleasant bready aroma.
Light flavor reveals some herbal/floral hops in addtion to the malts..
O: An amber "lawnmower beer" that improved with warming.

NIce. NOt so strong and quite sweet. Creamy and interesting foam. A little bit like Brittish tradition but not exactly one of them.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big can in Seattle. Dark clear copper, big foam head. Sweet juice amber malts. Drying finish, banana bread, staleness. Nothing horrible here but very boring.
