"the name says it all..."mellow" amber. in laymans terms, that means boring, as it was probably the worst of the 15 or so we sampled from them. notrhing else to report."

Pours a hazy golden brown from the can with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma of earthy hops, slight nuts, very faint overall. Taste is more toward the toasted nuts, come out more as it warms, hint of caramel, hops have died off. Itís ok, but probably the last exciting beer Iíve had from them.

Pours clear amber medium frothy head lots of lacing. Nose is somewhat sweet syrup. Flavours of sweet syrup, some Cheerios, some light grassyness. Taste light/med sweet light bitter. Reasonably light body with medium carbonation. Solid quaffer.

Pint can from Perryís. It pours a nice clear copper orange color with a small, disappearing white head. The aroma is very dry and lightly toasted with some mild berry-like hop notes. The flavor is the same. Pretty simple and mildly toasty/bready with subtle floral hop notes and a mildly bitter finish. A pretty nice session Amber Ale, but I was expecting more hoppiness. Almost no aroma despite the dry hopping. Hmmm.

From the can. Light hop bitterness with caramel, sweet malt, and thin grain. Clean drinker. Okay.

Draft. Pours amber gold with a white head. Toasted malty base, lighter sweet malty notes, faint hoppy bitterness, and light floral notes. Nice enough.

16 oz can courtesy of a trade. Glad to finally try this one. Pours a decent hazed dulled orange copper hue. A bit hazy, almost rusty with some bubbly whitish head atop that dissipates quickly, remains a mellow ringer that laces small overall. A bit darker, carmelized and toasty hues run throughout. Aromas are a bit carmelized, gentle caramel and toast meet firm biscuit, and earthy bitter hop is a touch florals, grassy with some runs of faint soap, soil and more carmelized feels. Initial is a bit toasty, lighter end of the fold with carmelized malts, biscuit and gentle sweetness. Dry, earthy, and bitter elements flow in slowly. A gentle carbonic bite up front makes way for that more toasty, carmelized middle. A gentle sweetness, earth and gentle touches of florals waft in and out. A crisp, biscuity and toasty malt body is gentle and not overwhelming and a decent hoppy kick of dryness and bitter earth as we turn the corner to the backend give it some life. Finish is a bit toasty, carmelized and earthy tapering out. Simple yet the dry hop element does itís job. A faint spiciness, earth, and toast and bitterness linger on. Serviceable Amber that I canít complain about. Simple, perhaps a bit forgettable, but certainly drinkable.

BlackHaddock (3905) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
1st beer on my 2nd flight of the day at the San Clemente Pizza Port: 17th July 2014. Clear amber with a thin off-white head. The aroma had some caramel hints and a mild fruitiness. The taste similar with a semi-dry palate, medium bodied with a good carbonation. Finish was mildly bitter. OK, but the flight held better stronger flavoured brews.

tectactoe (2042) - Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Can: Thanks, Jeff. Clear-ish, burnt gold-amber body with a chunky eggshell cap; light, clingy lacing left behind. Aroma of clean yeast, faint bread, lightly stale caramel malt... Sadly, not much else. Very vapid. Flavor suffers the same fate... Very mild toffee, lightly toasted malts, yeast, a touch of soapy & earthy hops. Not much bitterness at all. No real sweetness, either. Abrupt finish, albeit clean. Nothing "bad" about this beer, per se, but thereís nothing going on.
