The first time I had the Briarpatch Amber I fell in love. There was so much flavor, an explosion of flavor, I didnít know what to think. I will try to pick it apart for you...great golden amber color, with a pillowy head...so smooth and easy to drink...plenty of malty, caramel, honey sweetness with enough hops to make it so that itís not syrupy, or unfocused. Thereís definitely a lot of flavor in this beer, and itís definitely not unfocused. One of my new favorites, for sure, especially in the Local category.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper-amber pour into thick, off white, frothy head that dissipates quickly into sticky lacing which melts down the glass. Aroma of toasty caramel malt with hint of carmelized citrus. Initial flavor of malted caramel that fades into a spiced hoppy finish.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured a hazy copper color with a foamy white to off-white head. The aroma was citrus, malt and possible infection. One sip verified my initial thought. This one had a bug in it. Drainpour.
