As I'm sure I have mentioned here before I touch here and there on amber ale's but they're usually not high on my list. It had been awhile since I had one and even longer since I last gave a Breckenridge a shot. Figured both were due.
Good strawberry blonde color with an average amount of bubble rising from the bottom of the glass up to a quickly gone head. A faint grainy scent that smelled like a standard marco really more than anything else. Y'know the drill...not much there. It just smells like, you know, beer. Nothing off putting but lacking character or allure. The first thing I notice in the taste is, well, not very much. Just thin. Very (and I mean very) slight maltiness and what there even is of it, just add a metallic taste to what seems a murky water concoction in the first place. A hint of sour apple comes through towards the end that is, I guess for the lack of a better word, a clean finish but that finish comes from the fact that the beer is boring to begin with.
