Bottle - cloudy amber with moderate off-white head. Malty aroma with some light fruit, caramel, light floral hops. Malts and caramel in the taste. Medium bodied. Low carbonation. A bit lacking in interest, but drinkable enough.

Fresh can. Smell is relatively choppy, citrus and bread crust. Flavor is choppy and herbal at first with a massive blast of sweet caramel. Bit too much caramel but a robust amber

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden amber and big fluffy white head.
Caramel, apricot and fresh bread on the nose, fairly subtle.
Good creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation, nutty,caramel and doughy. A nice hint of grassy hops, give a nice sharp bite, with a little citrus.
The finish is fairly sweet, and little nut oily aftertaste and citric.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can. Appearance: amber color, finger of white head that diminishes quickly, clear, Aroma: caramel, resin, spruce, nuts, raisins. Palate: medium body, lasting bitter finish, dry finish, average carbonation, sticky texture. Taste: piney sweetness, followed by nice bitterness that grows. Overall, actually really like the complexity of this amber, even if it does not have the best texture. Very worth trying.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear copper with steadily fading white top. Earthy, spicy notes with some red grape and blackcurrant in the background. Palate is thin(even for an amber)and unsatisfying. Mostly caramel malt masking some earthy, hop bitterness. Has a roasty note on the back-end which leads to a earthy-hop lingering bitterness.

keg @The Vintage, Leith. Pours clear amber light off white head. Slight nose but a huge caramel/toffee sweetness, some small amount of fruit, maybe cranberry but i was just not sure, dry like a white wine.

Poured from a bottle. Cloudy brownish copper with a foamy tan head. Aroma is big caramel along with some raisin; also slightly metallic. Taste is also heavy on the caramel accompanied by grain. Only slightly hoppy. Long finish. The body is light and carbonation is soft. Overall, a good amber.
