3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is an excellent amber all. Deep red-amber with a lacy, tenacious head. Big fruity esters and candy floss in the nose, biscuity malt and roasty caramel. Taste reminisces on the aroma with fruity, candy and some citrus notes with a warming, balanced finish. Body is that of a bigger beer. Excellent stuff.

bottle. deep yellow pour with a tiny white head.... crisp citrus and light fruit notes over the nose... not much hop presence. German malts as well on the nose... medium body with apricot and other light fruit... crisp clean sweet finish.

This poured an amber color with an off white head. Aroma was bready, malty, and some citrusy hop notes. Flavor was a nice balance between malt and hops, nothing to impressive here but pretty decent for the style.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper to orange with some slight haze and generous white head. Nose is mostly citrus with some caramel too. On the palate the caramel comes through as well as some dark, sweeter malty flavors. Hops balance it out though, but to me they remain in the background. There’s a complex malt sweetness in this ale. Great, smooth mouthfeel and easy drinking.

Bomber. Pours a hazy amber/copper body with a large creamy off white head. Good lacing. Aroma is nice floral hoppy, toasted caramel and some cereal notes. Flavor has a great balance of sweet malts with a nice hoppy bitter finish. Full bodied, long lasting flavor. Solid amber!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smoky red color with a pleasant hoppy aroma. This beer was sampled part way through a pretty heavy beer day, so my memory is a little hazy.

A nice amber ale. Aroma was weak. Couldn’t pick up much other than some roasted malt and grass. Pour was a beautiful dark amber...great color...with a thin off white ring for a head that left quickly. Taste was very malty with a hint of ginger ale in the aftertaste. As it warms a nice hoppiness comes out. Strong carbonation. Not bad.

Well, I can see from the beginning why this rates high on this site. Big floral hop aroma and the first taste is all hops, in IPA form. Way off style, IMHO. Also, seems like the alky content is much more than 5% if you go by flavor. Forward bitter malts in there too. Long bitter IPA finish, way too much for this lager lover.
