COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amber ale is styled after the British ambers so popular amongst the soccer fans across the pond. It was developed for the Kansas City Wizards (now Sporting KC) soccer team, and since its inception half of the proceeds from its sales go to support that team. It is mostly true to the style it’s modeled after, but hopped slightly differently. It’s refreshing, carmely and earthy.

12 oz can. Yikes, this is pretty bad. Fairly good looking rich amber pour with a clingy head. Smells and tastes dirty. Sweet and stale caramel malts, earth, dry - meh. Drain pour.

Amber in color. Not much aroma. Light drinkable beer. Nicely carbonated. I had this on tap as part of a flight.

Plastic glass draft at Snow Creek ski resort in Weston, Missouri. The pour is a clear brown copper with a 1/2 inch frothy light tan head. The aroma is apple fruit sweet, caramel malt and some floral in the back. The taste is sweet green apple fruit, light malt caramel behind that and not too much else. The palate is light to medium bodied with active coarse carbonation. A bit flat in the finish. The beer was somewhat unclean as it warmed.

From bottle. Attractive out of the bottle--a nice, deep red with slight off-white head, turns to crap shortly thereafter. Smells like chocolate and wet dog. Decent body and a pleasant enough start. Something goes terribly wrong in the back half--metallic with a dirty, chocolate aftertaste. Poor representation of the style.

Pours a dark amber color with a small head that fades quickly. Aroma of caramel, malt and grain. taste follows with malt, caramel, grain and bit of spice. Mild bitterness and fairly clean finish. Moderate body, lightly carbonated and has a bit of earthiness about it. Reminds me of a typical British style beer that goes well with sporting activities (soccer).

Amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some grain notes and not too much else. The flavor is also heavy on the grain and yeast notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Finhead (1372) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Hazy brown with some red highlights and a small, off-white head. The aroma is malty with light bread and caramel notes. It has a light, smooth body with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet at the start and finishes a little more bitter and dry.
