3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle pours a clear orange/copper color with small white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel malts with traces of banana, orange and bread. Tastesslightly sweet and bready with a short finish of the same. Body is medium with average carbonation. Nothing bad here, but nothing memorable either.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Clear amber pour with a foamy off white head. Nose is soapy, grainy, and a bit fruity and sweet. No hopping, but very malty. Tastes about the same...real soapy and lightly sour malt. A bit of roasty nuttiness too. Very odd beer...not very tasty.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma faintly peppery, followed by a faint banana. Pours red tinged gold. Pale head, subsides quickly. Starts creamy, slightly sweet on the tongue, finishes with dry rye. Medium-light body, flirts with being watery. Overall very drinkable. Calls itself an Amber Ale, but is classified as a Belgian Ale - not sure it fully fits in either.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Old Fashioned. Filtered orange-red-tan. Big, foamy off white head. Soapy, brewhouse aroma, not so impressive. Big vanilla cherry amber malt, not enough hops to balance it out. Not outright bad, but kind of a cheap, grainy factory feel. Not one I’d recommend or order again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper with thin off white head. Caramel malt, mild orange, and fruit aroma. Medium bodied, flavor like aroma, lemon. Medium hop front to back, lacks balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Old Fashioned, pours a clear amberish copper with a little bit of lacing in the glass, the aroma is pretty sweet with quite a bit of caramel and malt, the flavor is much of the same, sweet with a caramel finish and a little bit of fruit in the finish as well, not terrible.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Stubbys. Pours a light amber color with a white head. Aroma is malty, fruity, just a hint is yeast. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, a light belgian spiciness, the rye is noticeable, but subtle, with a light Belgian spicy finish. Interesting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served kind of cold, with a small, creamy, light tan head that slowly settled and plenty of sheeting lace. Color is a clear, darker amber with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a very mild malt, fruit, yeast. Flavor is like nose, sweet in front followed quickly with carbonic tang and then some bitter and not much else. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, on the short side, and very drinkable if non-descript. Though, according to style, the Belgian Singles are likewise understated - so - they score points here in that way.

Definitely is unique in its style. Still pretty mundane but give it to me over many other more generic ambers.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Horse & Plough. Completely nondescript aroma. Hazy reddish amber. Nice creamy, off white head. Undeniably an English bitter. Pretty good. Really nice finish. Initial impression wasn’t overly favorable but I really liked it by mid glass.
