2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a light copper color with minimal head. Some light citrus notes. Overall a basic beer that is akin to your average commercial beers, not a good depiction of an amber style beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at there Planet Hollywood location. Served in a plastic cup, which is quite lame, but it is Vegas. Not a big fan of this one at all. Looked fine, a dark amber color with a nice head. Aroma of caramel and sweet malt. There was something very offputting about the flavor; something akin to rotting rye. Can’t see myself every having this one again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
draft @ Sin City inFlamingo, Vegas.
Pours copper, off white head.
Aroma is malt and caramel.
Taste, malty with very light notes of caramel, hoppy finish, possibly some light fruit notes.
Too basic and boring, yet drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft - Poured a nice clear amber in color with a small whitish head that faded quickly. Aroma is weak with mostly malt and little hops. Flavor pretty much follows... not really much here flavor-wise. Disappointing...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Planet Hollywood, LV. I think they left something out in this; the aroma and flavor. Nothing was really "off" here but nothing is really worth mentioning, either. Weak malty aroma with faint sweetness. Light caramel noticed in the flavor and moderate carbonation. Forgettable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Clear amber body with a short white head that quickly receded. Very little aroma, but what’s there is malty with notes of caramel and grain. Hint of flowers. The flavor was moderately sweet and very mildly bitter. It finished about the same. Medium body that is a bit course, grainy. Moderate carbonation. Malts and body seemed unrefined. Could have used a bit more hop presence.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This seemed to be around the strip alot, which was cool, but i was not a fan. It had a strange yeasty flavor that didnt give it a good texture either. Some more hops may have killed that - this seemed to be dominated by caramel.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft in Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas.
Pours clear amber color with a moderate frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate sweet malty aroma. Medium body with little carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of an average duration.
My expectation where not met with a soft beer.
