3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice amber pour with thin off-white head. Lightly roasted malt and toffee aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt with just the slightest hint of hop. It’s not great, it’s not terrible, just rather average.

Pours a nice clear amber color with off-white head. Caramel malts, roasted malts, and a little citrus sneaks in on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes clean.

This is a pretty decent version of an under-appreciated style. Mild and watery, but with a nice breadiness. Tried at the brewery with Vaughn and Amanda.

Pretty basic amber ale here. Slight malty sweetness. Not too bad but nothing interesting. Thanks GV for this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light amber with minimal head. Aroma of corn and grains with minimal malt. Taste is light sweet. Caramel, cotton candy and corn. Light bodied with a slightly slick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Enjoyable but nothing to seek out.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Memory Lanes. Good amber color. Doesn’t give the impression of freshness otherwise. Little head, no lacing. And not tied into the pouring abilities of the bartender. Slight malt sweet aroma but very slight. Tastes like a run of the mill Midwestern lager. No complexity. If you’ve tried the Grain Belt Nordeast, this bears a striking family resemblance. More brick than fire.
