3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has a pretty strong caramel aroma with some citrus hops, red color, hazy, minimal thin head, medium sweetness, salty taste and lightly bitter, medium body, thick feel, average carbonation, astringent finish. I’m not sure if I would serve this without warning that it isn’t the kind of red ale that I’m used too - it is somewhat sweet and not as strong as say a Killians.

Hazy toffee colored pour. Small light tan colored head. Little bit of lacing. Huge aroma of piney, floral hops. Taste is a nice citrus and sweet malt. A little bitterness to round it out. Nice beer.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 This beer reminds me of an IPA. It tastes very similar to Troegs Nugget Nectar with a slightly lighter taste, but a touch more bitter.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown a bit reddish with a nice tan head. Aroma of malts, caramel and hints of hops (citrus and floral). Taste of malts with a boatload of hops, nice bitter and sticky finish. Very interesting beer, very enjoyable but very strong too.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Antenna America, 6.8% It pours a burnt amber brown with a thin tan head. The nose is an appetizing caramel & citrus with floral notes. Great creamy full mouthfeel with zesty citrus, caramel & biscuity qualities to it. A really kick ass American amber ale. In terms of the style I’d say it is darker than average & hoppier than average but it is a truly delicious amber ale.

average creamy frothy offwhite head. mostly diminishing. good lacing. clear thick dark reddish-amber body. aroma: heavy hoppy, wood, nutmeg, alcohol, mate tea, peppermint. if: moderate sweet heavy bitter. ff: light sweet heavy bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, metallic light alcoholic finish. Amargor fortíssimo de lúpulo, a La IPA, condimentado, apimentado, e lembrando casca de laranja, dulçor de chá, não esconde o álcool, cerveja picante, lembra noz-moscada, leve aquecimento alcoólico. Me parece fugir do estilo no entanto, apesar de interessante. Dulçor traz também toques de caramelo.100 s
