3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a great session ale. The aroma is a bit weak, smelling of sweet malts and a hint of hop hiding in the background. It pours a cloudy light tan with about a thin long lasting head. The flavor is a touch of caramel balanced by a touch of hops in the background.

A little hoppy for an amber. More of an IPA. Not a lot of malt. Drinkable, but not great.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Old rating. A bellwether for ambers. One of my old town go to beers. Pours a clear copper red with a modest eggshell head. Nut-forward aroma with grain, caramel and a hint of stone fruit. Taste is more of the same with the sweetness from the malts and and slight hoppy bitterness balancing well. Watery mouthfeel. Medium light body. Nice smooth finish.
