Gold pour. White head. Meh, I guess it goes well with wings. Light hops, biscuity malt, nothing amazing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings, South Burlington, VT.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a super light yellow complexion with a good transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a fast pace. There was no head.
The smell had some sweet dried grassiness, but that’s about it.
The taste was somewhat bitter with a dried grassy edge.
On the palate, this was really light, super sessionable, carbonation felt good.
Overall, eh, low key, non-offensive, so, one could pound it all day long if they wanted to. Me, got better once the garlic spice wings came.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at a Buffalo Wild Wings. Citrus and a bit of pine on the aroma. Clear golden color with a thick froth of white head. Fairly coating lacework. Decent hop bitterness. Malt backbone is almost unnoticeable in the flavor. Mouthfeel is okay. A little thin, watery. Finishes crisp and dry. Better than I expected it to be. Probably a perfect gateway IPA for the light beer drinking crowd.

Draft at hobby Buffalo wild wings...
Nose is caramel, grainy malts, and light hops...
Pours a clear caramel orange color, lasting head, heavy lace...
Tastes much the same simple malty sweetness and light hops...
Light body and super easy drinking...
A thirst quenching, toned down macro-style micro. Basically the Bud of ales. Why is this an APA on here? More like an Amber I’d say.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served clear deep amber color with a small head of one finger height. The head fades relatively quickly leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is light overall consisting of a bready smell as well as some caramel aromas. With these smells comes a light toffee and earthy smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a lightly toasted bready flavor with a touch of a grain and some caramel. Along with these tastes comes some other flavors of a light toffee. As the taste moves forward the toffee and caramel fade and are replaced by a little bit of molasses. Along with these tastes, other flavors of an earthy flavor and a little bit of grass come at the end, to leave a lighter roasted and easy going amber taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher to average side. For the style it is rather nice and makes for a rather easy drinker overall.
Overall – A pretty decent amber brew that drinks easy and has a mild but enjoyable flavor profile.
