Pours a finger of head on a clear dark straw body. Aroma is mild caramel. Taste is caramel and kind of malty. Texture is crisp. A solid amber ale.

rondphoto (4350) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 14, 2017
bottle @ Calandros / Baton Rouge LA --- Clear bourbon-colored amber, ivory head that sinks quickly to a thin cover, strands of lace. Taste is malt, mild carbonation, and light hops. A simple, light-bodied brew. Nice for sessioning.

Cajun (523) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Bottle - Pours a medium to deep amber with off-white head. Some mild hints of caramel malts, toffee, pancakes. Flavors the same. I expected more, but I realize its probably better fresh/on tap.

beer_rookie (530) - Arkansas, USA - DEC 20, 2016
Pours an Amber color. Slightly hazy and cloudy. About one finger lightly foamy white head. Short lived. Low retention. But pretty good retention of bubbles around edges of glass. Very light lacing.

Aroma is cracker and toffee. Both are pretty light.

Taste is light. Light cracker, light toffee. Light floral hops.

Mouthfeel is light to medium. Its not bitter. Its semi dry, and clean.

Overall, its okay. Okay but underwhelming. There are many better options. I would not buy it again. For someone trying an amber for the first time, it would be ideal. Apart from that, Id say its not worth it.

Thankfully the horrible taste of this Amber is only evident if you can choke down enough of this watered-down swill to finish the bottle. What a disappointment!

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
On tap at Wasatch, pours a clear orange amber with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of bready malts and no hops. Not much going on here. Meh.

snoworsummer (5462) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Draft at the Ogden Raptors. Pours clear amber with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like bready malt, cutrus hops, a little nutty, and a little corn. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like nutty, bready malt, corn, and a hint of citrus.

Bottle at Snowbird. Nice amber body with medium head. Nose is malty, caramel and citrus. Taste is malty, plums and caramel. Not great balance but okay.

Bottle. Yellow amber pour, with a thin head. Light caramel, watery, thin, stale bread, and a bit grassy. Zzzzzzzz
