3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep amber with a really nice head. Aromas are nutty and sweet with some anise in the background. A good firm body with some nice mild noble hop flavor. Great session beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber hue with fizzy off-white disappearing head and no lace. The aroma has a large sweet caramel tone along with hazelnut, buttered biscuit, floral hops, and barnyard yeast esters. The taste starts with a plum like fruity tone and those sweet malts detected on the nose. A nice bitterness shines through more towards the midsection. Nutty and sweet final finish. The mouthfeel is moderately full and lively. An above average Amber Ale. If you like caramel malts, you will like this beer. Thanks JSquire for the brew.

Slightly hazy, deep amber colour with a tan head. Nutty, malt aroma with lots of caramel. Smooth, buttery malt flavor with a bit of spice in the back of the throat. Minimal bitterness, full bodied.

Wonderful malt aroma, clear amber color, smooth malt taste, little bit of a nut finish and a little bitter at the end. This was nice but when I had it in Alaska it was near top rated stuff

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours deep amber with a quickly diminishing head and lively carbonation. Lightly roasted malts greet the nose. I get a grassy/oat tinge as well. Immediate hop kick on first sip quickly giving way to a malty aftertaste. A slight sweet grain flavor on finishing. Lacks good lacing, fairly full bodied. Tiz a good Alt.

This beer is some really good stuff. It is nice and smooth with a good aftertaste. I would definitely buy this again if I could get it here.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2005 This is a decent brew but nothing special to go out of your way for. Not much taste but is still beer

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy apperance, caramel flavor but with a weird metallic finish that I didn't care for at all. Very boring.

Pretty amber color out of the bottle with a small beige head and a slightly roasted malt nose. Some white sugar sweetness with apple juice notes. Faint hop notes keep it from being entirely one dimensional. Okay beer with food.
