2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft sample at the 2nd Annual Rocket City Brewfest. Amber in the glass with an off-white head that settled to a ring. Subdue aroma of toasted malt. The flavor was also subdued with toasted malt and a slight earthiness. Medium body, sweet, slightly chalky. Subdue overall and not that exciting.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a murky golden orange color with brown hues and dark golden orange hints when held to a light source. Two finger frothy, soapy white head that quickly fades into a lasting ring. Sporadic chunks of lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with hints of bready yeast, earthy hops, caramel malt, butter and toffee. Slightly toasty with a subtle funky presence. The earthy character is a bit much and it smells kind of like dirt/soil.
Fuller bodied than expected with some soft carbonation up front followed by a dry, bitter earthy hop flavor which is a bit stale. The malt backbone isn’t as strong as I expected or hoped for. Slightly toasted caramel malt with subtle hint of rye, bready yeast, toffee and butter. Not very well balanced with an odd solvent alcohol astringency and an unpleasant metallic finish.

an amber ale that despite the super cool packaging wasnt really anything special. some of the toasty grain notes and mildy brown sugar notes are there, along with a mild hoppiness. but otherwise not really that interesting, though better than some ambers ive had.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours a clear amber color with a beige head that lingers nicely. Not too impressed with the aroma or flavor on this one as both seemed to be quite subdued. It did have a crisp, clean finish making it easy to drink but not very exciting.
