2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a golden amber with a decent white head. Hay and toast aroma. Thin texture, soft carbonation, medium body. Slightly sweet with light malt flavor. This beer is just okay.
12 bottle fresh from the brewery store.
Hazy medium amber body with a good head.
Hop dominated aroma with an earthy and spicy nature.
Flavor: more like an APA than a amber ale, this brew is more hoppy than malty.
Overall: just OK

2015 BJCP Category: 2B International Amber Lager Quick3Beers (1556) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 14, 2016
AROMA: Restrained nose with light honey malt. Generic lager aroma. Slight lemony note indicative of oxidation. 7/12
APPEARANCE: Gold/maize hue. Very clear. Spastic carbonation visible. Small, white head; Average retention and lacing. 1/3
FLAVOR: Fairly low malt profile; more dry than sweet. Faint honey or caramel flavor; hint of bread. Minor hop bitterness. Clean fermentation. No flaws. Not bad tasting, but far from delicious. 11 /20
MOUTHFEEL: Light/medium body; crisp throughout. Clean finish. Not especially refreshing though. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Better than any macro amber lager, but too mild and generic to be memorable. Easy drinkability, though. 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 30/50
A good clean crisp amber, with a good amount if tropical hops. Well-balanced. Good beer.

A skunky smelling malt lager that has a decent malt body but no supporting characteristics. Jabah (572) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - APR 10, 2015
This is the typical amber. Goldish/amber color, with a light caramel sweet taste...semi-bitter aftertaste. My buddy from Tampa brings it camping so we drink it as a "warm-up" daytime beer. Kind of light, not much alcohol. Not bad for a Florida beer, but doesn’t really compare with the premium microbrews out there.

Drank from 12oz bottle in Tampa FL. Not much to report on as the beer didn't set itself apart in any way. Very malty without a balancing hoppiness that was needed.

Medium gold, thin head. Nose = not much(vague malt, hint hops). More sweet than bitter. Middle is caramel malt. Finish is dry, a little bland. The label promised hops in abundance I did not find. BAMF (78) - Albion, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Pours clear yellow with an good amount of White head. Aroma is of malt, straw and grain. Taste is somewhat Skunky and straw follows up with a better grain bread type finish. Mouth feel is thin.
