3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a reddish/amber with moderate head and lacing. Aroma of fruity hops and malts. Taste has a strong malty backbone with a slight nuttiness. Finish is mild hop bitterness with a slight citrusy hue. Palate was very nice. Overall, a very nice amber ale from Sand Creek.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
8/17/14 bottle poured into shaker glass. This beer is a blend of red ale, blonde ale, & brown ale. Aroma is nutty sweet and roasted malt. Mmmm...malt. Appearance is medium brown. Taste is nutty with a touch of sweetness. Malty finish. Slight alcohol tang but not off putting. Low hop bitterness. Blending is new to me and this is a very drinkable beer.

355ml bottle. Pours like an amber ale. Heavy vegemite and soy sauce in this one, think maybe they are jsut using bad old beers from other contracts to make these.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brunos in Lake Geneva. Pours a rich red; nose is caramel; initial taste is smoothness of a brown ale. Very little ’red’ in here besides the color....no red / amber ale edge. Pleasant but not outstanding...smooth.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured clear, medium amber with a short beige head. The aroma picked up nutty notes and redder fruits, with toasted grain and earthy accents. The flavor found dry pale malts and redder fruits at the core with prickly carbonation, a touch more fruit, and amber malts around.. finished slow due to big carbonation, and it scratched the throat a bit. Medium-ish bodied with heavy carbonation on the palate.. didn’t flow well.. not all that enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber, medium beige head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is cardboard, caramel, grass, lightly nutty. Flavor is medium sweet, very light bitter, caramel and grass, bready, nutty, touch of cardboard. Medium body, high carbonation. A bit acidic. Not bad, but bland.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper brown with thick white head. Aroma is tropical/banana/ bubblegum. Flavor carries some of the aroma profile, on a more classic hop malt frame. Pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Burnt orange-brown pour. Nose has sweet grain/corn aspects of cream ale, with light toasted notes/caramel. Flavor is slightly sweet buttered corn/grain with slightly more pronounced nutty toasted malt. Light body. Lingering toasted grain. While I don’t get the gimmick, this is by no means a bad beer, just fairly lifeless and forgettable.

Enough with the blended beers already. I love the concept of trying New brews, but in this case it just isnt working.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Riley’s World of Wines in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear light brown copper colored brew with a decent sized off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, floral hops, a hint of toffee, a Brazil nuts. Taste is medium bodied, balanced carbonation with flavors of toasted biscuit caramel malts, floral hops, a touch of bread crust and a touch of roasted nuts. Finish is balanced with aftertaste of roasted nuts followed by a crisp finish. A nice session amber ale overall.
