3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear tawny with an average, frothy beige head, medium-short retention with fair to good lacing. Aroma is average malt (biscuit, cookie, straw), average hops (woody, earthy), and average esters (apple/pear). Flavor is average malt (biscuit, cookie, straw), average hops (woody, earthy), and average esters (apple/pear). Medium body, warmth, and carbonation, light creaminess with a dry finish. This beer seems rather similar to their Amber Ale, though less exciting. An extra bit of hops and less dark caramel malt would really help this ale.

651mL tank shell can thanks to ryan. The pour is a clear, red, fire iridium with a tan, thick, sheen head. Big lace. Aroma is sweet syrup, metals, toast. Taste is malty, toasty, caramel, lightly metallic, lemon, fairly bitter, rye bread. Pretty mediocre. Palate is thinner, tart. Again, not bad for $3 a bomber.

12oz bottle, shared by DanielCoor. Clear amber color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Caramel, sweaty aroma. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Moderate bitter taste. No sweetness. A lot of caramel malt in the flavor. Toasty malt, some metallic, no hop character. Tastes a little oxidized, like a year old or so or more. Wasn’t sure what to make of this... Ok english-style old ale.
