Dark amber/light brown color. Moderately hazy. Although the head is modest, it does leave ample blanket lace on the glass
Earthy, dry malt aroma. Very faint hop nose.
Better hop presence in the taste. The malt is still the stronger flavor, still earthy. The aftertaste is well balanced, but short lived. The body is richer than most with a slightly higher level of carbonation.

Pours a slightly hazy amber body with a small fizzy off white head. The nose is slightly sweet and toasty with some caramel and husky malt. Light minimal floral hops. The flavor is sweet as well, thin caramel malt and husky toasted malt. Some moderate floral hops on the finish, but the sweetness overtakes the bitterness in the end. Light bodied, a bit clingy with fizzy carbonation. Pretty bland and boring stuff.

If this is "american brewing renaissance " we are in trouble. Tastes like a skinny killians. Red body with no head. Kind of an off caramel smell and not so great taste.

A so so Amber Ale (Red Ale). Got a 6 pack for the night after dining at Salem Beer Works restaurant. Drank 3 or 4 of them, as well as some Guinness. Did not feel so well in the morning. :(

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from a bottle that was given to me as an extra in a trade. Pours deep clear amber with a frothy tan head that has real staying power. Nose is a fairly boring caramel and nutty malt with a hint of aromatic bitter hops. The flavors are a little more prevalent with caramel malt, some dough yeast, and just the right amount of hops flavor. The body is light with an oily texture, average carbonation, and a medium but sticky finish of caramel malt.

Bottled version. Nice looking deep amber color with good carbonation and head retention. Aroma is sweet. Flavor is very malty on the sweet side. Could use a bit more hop balance, but otherwise this is fairly good.
