3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft taster at the brewery. Pours a clear golden amber with a small off-white head. Notes of amber and caramel malts, leaves and some earthiness, tea with lemon, and a bit of toast. Not really any ’roast,’ but certainly has more depth to the malts than most ambers. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, dry mouthfeel. Really good for the style.

Aroma of caramel malts and moderate floral hops. Appearance is translucent copper with sticky bone head. Flavor matches the nose; a nice floral presence with the caramel malt backing. Palate is medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation and a bitter finish. Good amber.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It poured a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of yeast and some faint malts. The taste was of yeast and tart, almost sour with the over yeastiness. It finished a little watery. A decent Amber Ale.
