Excellant amber ale lots of flavor. Hints of chocolate aroma and taste the hefty ABV is well hidden with all the flavors more malt then hops a nice change from the many IPA’s I have been trying lately.

Cloudy, amber-brown pour with a frothy off-white head. The aroma has pine with some bread and caramel. It has a medium body with smooth texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet, then finishes more bitter and dry.

Sample at the brewpub. Clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Malt, caramel and hops in the nose. Medium body with flavors of caramel, malt and subtle resiny hops. The finish is malty up front with a piney hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

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.

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.
