2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Auburn, with a creamy off-white head. Nose is peachy and a bit fruity, with noticeable hops. I usually think of ambers as malty, not particularly hopped brews, but this one has a load of hops. Very bitter. Slight fruit of the peach or apricot variety, but mostly just sharply bitter with few malts.

this beer was a suprise to me. with a light coppor flavor and a medium head leaving nice rings on the glass. it has a smooth taste, sweet at first with a light hoppy finish that is barely noticeable at first. it also has a dry finish on your lips. suprising to my self i enjoyed this beer.

I liked this more than the Bells Pale Ale. Don’t know why.

Like the Pale Ale, it’s on the pale side for the style and has a similiar head. The body is a medium amber, but looks gold in some lights. Aroma is less hoppy than the PA and picks up some caramel notes. The flavor also has the slight caramel notes, but is still dominated by that crisp pale malt flavor (don’t know what it’s called). The hops are subtle to not there in the beginning but come out to give you a slow motion punch in the end. It’s a very weak, friendly punch though. Seems like the hop blend is the same or similar to the one used in the Pale Ale, just in lower amounts.

Smooth without being bland, rich without being heavy, and has a nice crisp finish. I wish this was available in Tennessee becasue I’d like to try more of their stuff.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange with medium off-white head. Citrus hoppy aroma, very fresh. Distinctly hoppy flavor that’s unexpected for an amber. But there’s a lot of sweetness, too much so.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a great beer. It seems to have a good blend of hops to give it a very good taste, with an aroma that is excellent. I would have to say one of the best beers that i have had i would suggest it to anyone.

I am not a huge fan of ambers, but the hops in this one made it a bit better than others I have had.
