2015 BJCP Category: 19A American Amber Aleandyhwcinc (1886) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2016
AROMA: Light caramel maltiness, a hint of butterscotch. No hops. 7/12
APPEARANCE: Mostly clear shade of dark amber/light copper. Large, white, frothy head. Good lacing and retention. 3/3
FLAVOR: Malt-forward palette, though not especially sweet. Mild caramel/toffee flavors and some dry bitterness in the second half but no hop distinctiveness. No flaws, but not much to spec. Way too mild. 10/20
MOUTHFEEL: Light/medium body; fairly crisp. Smooth and clean aftertaste. Too light for the style. 2/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: This is clearly a mild beer intended for a pedestrian audience. Succeeds as such, but not a great example of the style. 5/10
TOTAL SCORE: 26/50
Enjoyed from bottle at Morada Bay while eating in Islamorada FL. I didn’t take tasting notes, but this was just an average amber ale, nothing tropical about it. Hiledd (137) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Clear copper color, malty aroma , sweet and crisp taste, some hops but a little more would help balance sweetness

Draft. Amber color with minimal white head and no lacing. Light toasted biscuit aroma. Light biscuit malt flavor with some bitter bite in the finish. Watery mouthfeel and thin body.

Pours a dark amber from a tap. Slightly hoppy, more bitter than floral. A little unbalanced and watery. Meh.

Caramel flavor. Very much like Yuengling Pleasantly surprised. Nothing offensive about it at all. Vir4030 (603) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2015
As someone who doesn’t drink a lot of ambers, this is good. Looks good, smells good, tastes good. Seems like a great textbook amber. miyauchi38 (1117) - chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2015

Draft. Medium off-white head atop lightly hazed amber body, nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, light spicy, bread/caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, bread, some earthy, light orange, caramel. Light-medium body. rougeau13 (3279) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Tap at Wyndham lake Buena vista. Deep amber with a nicely lacing cream gravy colored head. Aroma of caramel and toasted malts. Taste is toasty, lightly bitter, and lightly sweet. Light-medium bodied. Certainly nothing special, but not bad.
