So far I have not been impressed by Thomas Creek. The Amber however is better imho than what it is rated. Decent smooth drinker but still far from impressed.

I like Ambers. there is nothing great or good about them, but there is rarely ever a bad amber. I’ve read on here many times the word non-offensive and usually its meant as a negative. I don’t always see it that way. If it’s not bad, that’s better than bad. And consider how easy to drink ambers are I think that would classify as enjoyable. Not world-beating for sure, but enjoyable is what I look for in a "session" beer.
That said, Thomas Creek specifically. A nice little hop profile with emphasis on little with crystal-y malt flavors. The appearence, like the flavor was nondescript and nice.
All in all the word to use for this beer, just like one of those girls you had a good time with on the date who was a 6 in looks and 6 in personality but you wouldnt want to date exclusively or take home to mom and keep forever or anything.
