3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Brewdog, Edinburgh. Pours dark amber to orange with some head. The nose and taste is dominated by a sweet maltiness that reminds me of cake mixture. Thereís also something fruity in there that might be stewed apples or raisins. The palate is well balanced - nice medium bodied with some sweetness on the middle section and a nice clean hoppy finish. Overall, very enjoyable.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Mild sweet aroma. Medium amber color, modest head. Mildly bitter, otherwise pretty unremarkable. A light drinking beer, pleasant and refreshing, with no negative characteristics, but otherwise forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Pours a clear deep reddish copper color with a thick two fingered head that retains well. A pronounced aroma of caramel and biscuit malt along with soft piney hops. The taste is malty sweet with the hops complimenting nicely and adding additional sweetness before fading into a lingering bitterness. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel with only a tad bit of dryness.

This is one of the best amber ales Iíve had. Malty, caramelly base with some subtle citrus and other spicings. Sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep red-orange color, with a decent, slushy head.
Pleasant, mild hop aroma. with a sweet, caramelly balance. Some English ale stuff going on. Doesnít sting the nostrils, exactly, but doesnít offend either.
Flavor is very sweet, English-style malts; caramel and toffee. There is a nice, woody, bitter Euro hop that kicks in.
There is a sting on the palate that is reminiscent of Ringwood yeast. Whether itís brewed that way, I donít know, but it has that feint hint of it. Itís just fine for a reasonable price. Itís a European amber style, and a pretty decent one.
