3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
poured into glass from 12oz bottle, amber color with thin head, overall a fairly unimpressive amber ale, not much flavor and a little too sour for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 A: Clear copper with a half finger of beige foam. Busy carbonation. Short retention with good lacing.
S: English hops and toffee. Smells delicious!
T: Toasted malts with a mild but tasty hop bite coming in. Much like the smell. Not very complex but I think it’s very tasty indeed.
M: On the lighter side of medium body. Still busily bubbling but I like the tingle. Medium length chewy finish.
O: A pretty tasty refreshing amber overall and easily available in my area at very good $9/6 prices. Worth buying again.
