3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Poured copper to orange with creamy off white head. The aroma is light and has sweet roasted malt notes. The flavor is roasted malts that add as much roastiness as caramel sweetness. The hops come in as an undercurrent about midway. From what I could tell they’re of the grapefruit type variety.

Bottle to pint. Looks good; the color the title suggests. Smells solid; sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells with a decent mouthfeel. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in a pint glass. Pours amber (go figure!) with a small white head that sticks a bit. The aroma is surprisingly hoppy for an amber, and so is the flavor. The flavor is like hoppy caramel biscuits - a welcome change for an amber. Light body and somewhat high carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, slightly fruity nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit and orange peel. Fruity, malty taste with dried fruit, orange, caramel and a balanced bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with some sweetness. Lacking something extra, but well balanced and tasty.

Great for style. Nice creamy texture on this with extremely good balance between hops and malt. The blurb lives up to the fruit claim as well - there are definite hints of orange here. Foamy head with good lacing. Pours orange with a little cloud. Bottle from brewpub store.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12-oz. Thanks, Boboski! Pours a deep cloudy medium toffeed amber. Thick rocky head falls away to white moussy film after a few drinks. Rather sour bready/yeasty nose. Medium body with crisp but somehow intermittent carbonation. Lots of caramel and pale wheat bread on the mid-palate. Bready finish. This beer is definitely a celebration of all the grain agriculture that beer and breadmaking have in common.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Batch 7064. Poured a medium orangey-amber with a short, creamy white head. There was a good deal of sediment floating around in there. Sweet, malty arouma of primarily caramel maltage, with a nice dose of floral hops. Smooth caramel and noble hops were well-balanced in the flavor, with some subtle spice at the finish. Smooth on the palate with hoppy bitterness around the edges. This was definitely a tasty and well-crafted amber.
