Style: 10B American Amber Ale
Beer Info:
Descriptors:
Bottle Inspection:
Bottle Comments: Draft

Aroma:
Medium high level of sweet caramel and toffee like malt aroma dominates. No hop aroma. No esters. Low amount of butter-like aroma that is more like caramel and not diacetyl.
7 / 12

Appearance:
Medium copper with brilliant clarity. Medium amount of light khaki head that persists.
3 / 3

Flavor:
Medium level of toasty malt with a medium level of rich caramel and toffee flavor. Medium hop bitterness wit a low level of citrus hop flavor. Balance is slightly toward the malty but certainly not lacking in bitterness to keep the stronger malt flavors in check. Finish is moderately dry. All flavors clear palate - minimal after taste.
16 / 20

Mouthfeel:
Medium body with medium carbonation. Light creaminess and no astringency.
5 / 5

Overall:
Overall an excellent example of the style. A touch more hop aroma would really help bring the hop flavor and bitterness more in line and help to soften some of the more intense caramel richness.
8 / 10

Total Score: 39 / 50

Style Accuracy: 4 / 5
