Can from Whole Foods in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Amber body, slightly hazy, small off white head. Caramel malts, ripe fruit. Assertive sweetness throughout. Too much so for my palate.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty blah. Pours a copper-red with mid-sized, fast-dissipating head. Aroma is very grassy, a touch metallic. Flavor is grass, with some malt. Smooth sweet finish. Rather unremarkable.

Amber pour with an off-white head. The aroma has a lot of toffee and biscuit malt. The flavor is similar with some biscuit, toffee, caramel and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is very subtle and complex, for it is a seamless fusion of toasted malts, leaves, and soft apple; also, the color is a cloudy orangeish auburn with no head whatsoever. The taste is mildly sour, slightly bitter, and slightly sweet, which isn’t too impressive or unique, and the palate combines a medium body, oily texture, flat carbonation, and abrupt finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint can at the Flying Saucer in Little Rock, AR. Pours a lightly hazed, deeper amber colored body with a thin, creamy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is lighter with some medium sweet caramel, a touch of bread, and a hint of fruit. Flavor is similar. Medium sweet caramel with a bit of a grainy toast and bread. Light fruit notes with some grass that gives this a light bitterness and helps dry this out a bit alongside a light sweetness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty basic, but tasty amber ale. Easy drinking, fairly dry, and lightly sweet and toasty. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another good effort from Piney River. Light aroma, but crisp, brown taste. Solid amber - nothing too funky or overpowering.
