Bottle. Poured a clear amber color witha small white head. no lacing on the glass. Aroma is overpowered by yeast and malt. no hop presense whatsoever which is what i look for in a good amber ale. Not much here, a dry, unimpressive aftertaste. over carbonated.

12 oz bottle purchased at Woody’s in Cool Springs. Poured a clear amber/red color with a two finger white head. The aroma wasn’t much. Sweet malt and yeast. The flavor was actually enjoyable. There was a sourness present, along with some caramel and sweet malt. This was an enjoyable brew.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
An amber ale with a good malt flavor and an unfortunate tinny undertone. The beer pours an alright color for an amber. The head puffs up quickly but dissipates very quickly. The smell is sweet with malt, but a tinny note rears its ugly head. The flavor is similar with an overly sweet maltiness. Hops are present in flavor and taste but rather anemic ultimately, and the sweet malt drowns them out largely for the tongue. The feel is better than it was for Pyramid Apricot Ale, my only other stab at Pyramid that I wrote notes for. The carbonation is still not quite right, but not bad either. It is fairly drinkable and would be even more so if not for the tinniness.
