4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Dark amber color with light tan head and light lacing. Significant hops aroma with some sweetness. Hops in the forefront with medium bitterness, some malt flavor comes through before fading to the floral hops. Medium body, and hoppy finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at the brewpub. Aroma of piney, citric hop, toasted malt, caramel, background fruitiness and earthiness. Clear medium red in color with a fine, sparse head and very fine lacing. Flavor profile is full of piney, earthy hop flavors and bitterness, with the dark, caramel, toasty malts certainly present but largely overridden by the hops here, very much a Red IPA. Fine but persistent effervescence, a high degree of it in fact, body is medium. Interesting stuff, very earthy and bitter overall, lacking in balance to an extent due to this factor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty decent ale. More like an IPA than a true amber though. Lots of hops and a bit of malt. Very tasty, but not a traditional amber.

Pours an amber reddish brown color with a foamy cream head. Nose is rich caramel, toffee and malt and sweet. Taste more hoppy than sweet, with a mild to long lingering finish. Quaff Score 6 / 10

Best damn amber I’ve had in awhile. Beautiful color with a great finish and one of the most badass labels you can find. I think I’ll be drinking more ale asylum beers, you got me hooked

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Extra from Henshawb. Poured out a clear amber color with a nice tight head with good retention. Nose is grassy barnyard and sweet malts. Taste is sweet malt with a nice mellow hoppiness to it that finishes really nice. This is one of the better ambers ive had in a while. This would be a regular if available.

bottle. deep amber with one finger head. substantial malt body with medium hops. hop flavor seems dull. i’m clearly in the minority, but i found this underwhelming.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice hoppy red ale, one of the better ones out there. Pours a dark amber color. Lots of pine and caramel malt on the nose. Grassy pine, nuts, toast, and caramel on the palate. Pretty complex for an amber.

Love ale asylum and this is one of their best. Super hoppy and malty with tons of flavor. Pours a dark orange almost brown. Super tasty.

Bottle pour. A very dark reddish orange. Aroma of wine and citrus. Upfront is a very light malt bite. Back end is a dry bitterness that opens up a burst of sweetness. A crazy amber.
