COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

From growler. Hazy, well, amber color. Aroma is of cookies and damp cellar. Hints of spice over caramel malts. Chewy. Very traditional.

Just a well-balanced ale. Medium hop level, a little caramel sweetness and a light fruit flavor. Flavorful, quenching, drinkable. Will not blow anyone’s mind, but it’s good enough to earn some respect for the amber ale style.

Bottle @ Maya. Copper color with a small off-white head. Toasted brown bread, apple, a bit of fruit leather on the nose. Mellow Munich vibes. Some caramel and a hint of cocoa. Light apple and a hint of citrus fruit. Light body, crisp carbonation. A very solid accompaniment for my supper.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Surprisingly cloudy light amber with a small beige head. Malty nose, some caramel and nuts, biscuits, faint earthy hops. Sweetish malt, some toastiness, soft nutty flavors, lo-med bitterness. Medium bodied, softly carbonated, well rounded but lacks some crispiness. OK.

Sweet, citrus aroma. Flavors of orange, toasted bread, smooth caramel and mixed fruits. Hints of toffee and wood. Good dose of citrus hops balances the flavors nicely. Nice feel, medium bodied but crisp finish.

subsonic (82) - Pataskala, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2013
"Pours a dark caramel color. Smell is on the malty side. Taste is caramel malts up front, hop bitterness kicking in ay the finish. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer."

Bottle shared at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks RobertDale. Murky amber with a quick dissolving head that turns into a ring. Sweet, cooked apples aroma, very bitter and a little yeasty taste. Light-to-medium body, faint finish. Drinkable but past its prime.
