2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a light, quick-dissipating head. Nose is stone fruit, toast, and light spice. Flavor starts out rich and complex, but is kind of hollow in the middle; Finish is kind of weak, with not much depth. Starts out promising, but sort of fades away.

Meh...only non-mass market beer I could find in Houston airport (Shiner doesn’t count). Super pale like a dark pilsner. Drinks like a pale ale. Bit of a metallic aftertaste. Fine but dissapointing...where is the malt?

12oz. Bottle: Got in trade from fiveacestx; THANKS Cam! Aroma of malt, hops, and a hint of caramel. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny and small-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, and some grain. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, malt, hop, caramel finish.

Bottle- pours a clear amber color with a nice head and some lacing. Herbal aroma with some malt sweetness with a hint of fruit. Taste of malty sweetness with hint of citrus. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, crisp smooth and refreshing. nicely balanced. Another good beer from St. Arnold’s. Worth a try.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The color is kind of a pale amber with an off-white head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts and just a touch of hops. Taste is pretty decent, though not extravagant, a touch sweet and a touch hoppy. Medium-thin bodied. Decent session ale, well balanced.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. An all-around light amber. The color is extremely light for the style, a straw color only a shade darker than pilsners. The aroma has a distant hint of grassy hops and toast. The flavor has some bread notes and a quick, clean, hoppy finish. It’s pretty refreshing and clean, though I’m not sure what makes it an amber. I’d say it’s more of a light American pale ale.

My favorite Amber. Hoppy, crisp, thick, frothy head, although a slight metallic smell/aftertaste in some batches. A definite go-to at just about any bar in Texas. Really like this beer.
