3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: nutty, toffee/caramel aromas dominate. Appearance: crystal clear and lives up to the amber moniker. Taste: the malt flavor is center stage followed up by big bitterness to reign in the malt. Palate: middle of the road, moderate effervescence and body. Overall: I prefer my Ambers pretty hoppy so this one isn’t quite for me but still it’s a well made amber.

Pours a dark amber with heavy white head. Has a dark fruit malt aroma. Taste is sweet dark fruits with some grainy malt. A malty aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Proof. Deep amber red pour with a small bubbly white head. Sweet toffee, bread and caramel malt with a hint of pine. Flavor is similar and mild with a hint of a bitter pine end. Not bad for an amber. Easy drinker.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes out of the growler a clear mahogany with a fairly thick golden-buff head. Fruity, malty aroma is fairly strong and tempting. Flavor has a malty core with fruity and hoppy notes and a tinny snippet. Texture is smooth, but not too firm or fizzy. Still, a good catch.

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.
