3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Arnoldís, served in a pint glass. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a centimeter or so of frothy off-white head that forms a lasting cap. The hops are really active in this amber ale, with an initial whiff of soap and perfume. The amber and caramel and lightly toasted malts take a minute to emerge, and thereís some floral and grapefruit and orange character to the hops, with an underlying earthiness. Medium-bodied, with a bitter, smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Great take on an amber ale; hop it up a bit for balance and to make it interesting. I liked this.

This is alright. Itís more floral than it is smooth. Itís not very caramelly. OK maybe a little. Itís okay.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. On tap at the Eccentric Cafť on June 13. The pour is a nice dark copper, almost ruby color with a thin white head and some spectacular lacing. The aroma is very malty and biscuity. There isnít a whole lot else going on, but I like the toasty caramel. The flavor is the same; all malt, and a surprising sweetness that doesnít come up in the nose. The mouthfeel is thin and slick with minimal carbonation and a really sweet, lingering aftertaste
