12oz bottle from TRT, I think. Poured a chill hazed deep amber with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma/flavor of grains, bread, toffee, caramel malts, light citrus and slight earth notes. Medium body, creamy carbonation, smoother full mouthfeel. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Seattle Tap Room. Amber in color with white foam. Has a decent bit of citrusy hop character to it, mostly orange, with some pine and herbal hop qualities as well. Slightly earthy on the tongue, which comes across kind of like wet dirt. Some sweet caramel malts, citrus, and a touch of fruity esters. A bit of a husky bitterness to it as well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from Rockhead. Pours a lightly cloudy amber colour with decent-sized off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is caramel, lightly toasty grains and light citric/herbal hops. Flavour is malt-forward with big caramel, some toasty graininess and a fairly mild citric and herbal hop notes. Average body. Donít see this as an APA, but itís a servicable amber ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at a 4th of July party. No idea what it looks like because (1) it was dark, and (2) itís a party where the proper glassware is the bottle itself. Didnít know the style in advance, but I assumed nondescript amber ale - toast, grain, caramel, indistinct moderately bitter hop profile. Overall: a completely forgettable beer, okay for chilling with friends.

Draught at Nakanoshima. Dark caramel, bitter citrusy hops, hints of red fruit, bitter finish. More a hoppy amber, pretty decent anyway.
