Growler. This amber ale had an incredibly metallic flavor, and I'm not sure if that was from the growler or not. Still, not their best.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden.
A - Pours clear amber orange with a creamy one finger tall white head leaving sticky rings of lace down most of the glass.
S - Smells of caramel malt, toffee, light hop bitterness and a touch of fruity eaters. Not too much going on in the nose, gets a little better as it sits in the glass.
T - Starts off with some light hop bitterness quickly giving way to some sweet caramel malt and a touch of crusty bread. Finish is sweet with a bit of bitterness, not lingering on the palate for very long after the finish.
M - Medium-Light body with moderate carbonation. I like the smooth feel but it is a little plain for my tastes.
O - This one is rather plain compared to all of the other Pizza Boy offerings. It tastes just like a plain Amber Ale should, which could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on what you want out of it. If you are looking for a simpler Pizza Boy beer this may be for you.
