Desert Amber

Sonora Brewing Co

USA

Pretty typical amber ale, although a little sweeter than most, and probably better than most. It's almost citrusy, which I guess is the hops used. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, and yet there's not anything extraordinary either. Very drinkable beer that won't be a disappointment, but it's also not likely to become a regular in your fridge. It did win a bronze medal in the 1997 World Beer Championships, but the only reason I'd try to find out what it beat out is so that I'd know not to spend a lot of money on them.
