3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, Pours a slightly hazy copper color with s medium fluffy white head that leaves good lacing. Smells I’d biscuit, dough, sweet malt and caramel. Tastes if all the same things that are in the,smell. Mouthfeel is between medium and light with good carbonation. I think this is one of the better amber ales on the market. I like the hop presence it brings. Not many ambers catch my attention but this is one of them.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Not sure how old it is because instead of a clear BB date there’s just an indecipherable row of numbers. Amber body, small head. Aroma has intense caramel with some toffee and medium level hoppiness. Also some Old Ale-type of oxidised notes. Sweet malty body with caramel syrup and prunes. Finish has some cola notes. Feels quite oxidised at this point but generally seems to be a good beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle. Pours dark copper brown with an off-white head. Intense aroma of flowers and fruits (litchi and hints of citric fruits) and a little yeasty. Medium to full body with lively carbonation. The taste starts with roasted malts (caramel) but not too sweet with some fruity acids and alcoholic. Very well balanced with a smooth bitterness in the ending.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can from Co-Op Liquor Store, served in a nonic pint. Pours a hazy orangey-amber with fine suspended particulate, low and slow carbonation, and a thin, light tan head that leaves lace spots. Sweet, bready, toasted malts and hops that impart the aroma of Juicy Fruit gum, along with herbal and vinous hints, greet the nose; on the tongue, the maltiness parts somewhat for grapey, red winey flavors to take center stage. There’s an unfortunate sourness and an odd alcohol tang to the sip as well, which lingers for longer than desired. Slightly thick and a little silky. The wine-like elements pull this beer towards the fruity side and out-of-balance with the malt for an amber ale. Even with this, and with the presence of sour grapes, it’s still an enjoyable brew.
