2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear copper with not much of head or lacing. Hint of malt and hops on both the aroma and taste. So so. I’m thinking that ambers are not really my style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer.
The smell had a nice sweet roasty nutty to caramel maltiness.
The taste was mainly roasty malty sweetness.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me.
Overall, decent amber nothing to go bonkers about but could possibly have again.

22 oz bomber bought from "Grocery Outlet" in Salem OR
Nice light amber ale with a good sized frothy off white head.
Ok creamy fudge malt aromas..barely a touch of hop.
Plain malty forward taste..well balanced, does get a touch of bitterness in the end.
Ok mouth feel average for style..lowish carbonation leads to better drinkability.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Unimpressed. Appearance is a copper amber color with no head and no lacing. Carbonation is minimal and the body is poor. While the flavor is appealing, there is no distinctive items associated with this beer that will make it memorable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy amber under a thin foamy off-white head. Lovely earthy caramel tone on the nose and a sweet touch of toast. Tasty flavor with some toast and a bit of earthy caramel, mild earthy bitterness with not a lot of prolific hop flavor. Just ok, pretty "amber".

Bottle. Poured a dark amber color with an off-white head. Aroma was light caramel notes, some earthy hops. Flavor was earthy hops, surrounded my a mostly biscuit, caramel and malty body. Drinkable, but not overly refreshing unfortunately.
