3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 4C. Clear dark amber, less than a coat of off white head. Modest aroma of caramel, plums, raisins, grass. Taste has firm malt with just caught caramel, hints of fruit, plain chocolate and a drying hop presence at the end that doesn’t quite register as bitterness. As cold as it’s recommended it’s not very sweet at all and the malt flavours are varied and harmonious.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep ruby tinged copper with a lasting head.
Nose shows a rich mix of hops and malt. Big piney, resinous, earthy and minty notes from the hops, while the malt adds prominent caramel, nutty and toasty characters. Very nice!
Very similar hop profile as flavours, but in the way of malt only the nutty characters continue to stand out. Really needs more caramel to flesh it out.
Body feels a little watery.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle from Slowbeer
Very nice looking beer - deep amber, holds a dense tan head.
Excellent nose; lots of resiny, piney, citrus hop, well counter-balanced with an equal measure of toasty, roasty, nutty, toffeed, lightly chocolatey malt.
Full bodied, smooth, nice chewy texture, subdued carbonation.
Delivers plenty of biscuity, chocolatey, toasty malts, with lashings of spicy, piney, citrusy hops. Bitterness is big but in great harmony.
Couldn’t ask for more in an American Amber!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Baden Powell ontap (19-Jun-13) - Pine flower hop light malt aroma. Red brown colour, good head and nice ringed lacing. Nutty biscuit malt flavour. A bit thin but l guess it also makes it a quicker drink. Light bitter nutty finish and light caramel hop aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 330ml bottle on 1/2/2013. Pours a clear amber with a small head. the aroma is very curious for an amber ale - quite floral and fruity, with just a touch of toasty malt. The flavour is also curiously sweet and fruity, with lots of toffee malt in the background. The bitterness is subdued but works well in combination. A unusual amber which is very enjoyable.
