3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orange-ish amber color with floaties galore and a good head. The aroma has some floral hops and caramel but is overall kind of faint. The Flavor has lots of good grassy hops and some caramel with some fruity apple character. This is a pretty good example of an amber ale.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a gorgeous reddish hued amber with a beige creamy head that floats on top like a scoop of french vanilla ice cream. A bit of lacing completes the work of art. Caramel and fruit lightly entice the nose. The body is not as heavy as expected, and the massive supply of hops donít show until the swallow. The aftertaste of hops is strong, wonderful, and possibly eternal. Iím still tasting them an hour after I drank the bottle. Very nice!!!

Pours deep amber with haze. Nice, strong hop and caramel malt aroma. Malt taste comes through first with moderate hop finish. A tiny bit sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from my GTMW trip to Wisconsin. Pours a hazy dark amber, bits of brown and ruby, fairly dark for the style, well hazed, small beige head that stays at itís level, laces better than expected. Aromas are a good malty caramel base, but citrusy grapefruit and floral hops take on a bit stronger, bitter with toasty toffee, grainy, biscuits. Well hopped sweet Amber type. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a good bitterness, citrusy lemon and grapefruit, florals, a touch of gumball, toffee and caramel underneath, a bit toasty, grainy, biscuity. Better hopped than most Amber Ales, with a touch of pine in there. This is enjoyable, crisp grainy and caramel sweetness linger on the backend with some decent bitterness sticking to the palate. Iíd drink this more often if it were my local option. Pretty good.

12oz bottle. nice light brown amber shade with an off-white quickly disappearing foam top. big citrus hop nose shows off a little biscuit malt in the back. crisp bright hop balanced by sweet malts. finish is clean, and the body is medium. im not a big fan of ambers but this one is better than average. not the typical banal crossover beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Steveís Liquor in Madison, WI. Grassy and citrusy hop aroma with some malt sweetness. Color is dark orange with a big, fluffy off-white head. Bitter piney hop flavor balanced with pineapple and tangerine; extremely pleasant. This one was quite a shock as I am typically not the biggest amber ale fan. An excellent beer.l

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ale Asylum Ambergeddon is a clear, amber (almost copper) ale with a thin, splotchy off-white head with a bunch of oily bubbles on it. It leaves nice lacing on the glass. Thereís a lot of yeast in the bottom of the bottle. It has a huge, fresh hoppy aroma. Itís piny and resiny with a hint of tangerine. The malt smells biscuity and a hint sweet. It smells like an IPA. Itís medium bodied and incredibly smooth with a very clean finish. I taste a lot of hops (simcoe?). The caramelly malt flavor comes in at the finish. This is very good. It really seems like an IPA.
