Brewery: Big Muddy Brewing
Style: Amber Ale
Brewer Description: (from Big Muddy website) This is what happens when an American Amber meets a German Dunkel. Aromatic and Munich malts yield a slight sweetness balanced with a hint of chocolate roast. The result is a very approachable beer with a smooth distinctive taste.

Intro: A friend handpicked this beer as one of three fillers for a six pack to bring back to me in Hong Kong. Poured the 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear dark rusty amber colour with a one finger head that dissipates quickly and no lacing.
Aroma: Smells of malt, maybe plum and apple, but a hint of metallic at the end ruined it.
Taste: A bit light and thin. It was like watered down plum juice with an unfortunate light metallic aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Light, goes down easy, medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s not bad and it feels great in my mouth, but the flavours could be more pronounced and the beer would improve plenty without the metallic smell and taste that lingers at the end.
