4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: This beer isn’t amber at all! It’s like reddish orange. Nice head too it. I was very impressed when pouring this beer, perhaps partly due to low expectations for an appearance
S: Smells surprisingly hoppy.
T: Definitely more hoppy than what I was expecting but I’m not complaining. A very wet mouthfeel (this makes sense right?) really compliments the high hop content. A kick of malt in the finish, which is very smooth. Really great taste, and for the style, an amazing taste. Some slight citrus notes.
P: Medium body and very wet on the palate. Carbonation is a little aggressive but not too bad.
Overall this is a great beer. I picked it up solely because it had a fish on it, and I was not disappointed. Probably the most solid amber ale I’ve ever had.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This sort of splits the difference between an APA and an English pale. It has a good depth of malt character with some nice toasty and nutty notes. The hop character is nice too--piney and a bit herbal and earthy--but I feel it distracts from the malts or maybe vice versa. It is not a bad beer but it seems to compete against itself.

Smell is funky stale red ale malt. I should probably try it again not at Stanley’s farmhouse where the beers all taste like jester king funk.
