3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ C.B. & Potts in Greenwood Village, CO. Copper in colour, bubbly off-white head. Smell is predominately malty and nutty. Taste is confusing. Its mainly malty with tones of liqorice, chocolate cream, with a finish that is only a whisper of grassy hops. Very creamy texture. Was not expecting this lack of a hop profile in an "Amber". It’s balanced for an Oktoberfest, and it would probably make more sense under that label. But, that aside, it’s a fine malty brew.

Draft at The Ram in Northgate (Seattle). Lazy watery amber body with thin creaky head. Pretty awful, off-sour malting and watery body. could drink quickly but wouldn’t want to.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler. Pours a medium brown, slightly khaki head with good retention. Very fruity aroma, slight notes of the hops, definitely sweet smelling too. Really mellow flavor, good balance of hops and malt with hops dominating a wee bit, finishes quickly. Medium carbonation, a strange sensation that reminds me of cola, real light body and slightly slick texture.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is a pretty typical American amber ale, which is the same as saying it’s sort of bland and vaguely malty. The style can be done well but this brownish amber beverage is not an example of that. It is a bit oversweet, medium bodied with mild carbonation. It is pretty much utterly forgettable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the Indy brewpub. Reddish color with a nice head. Some nice and complex stuff going on here. Sweet spice, nice malt, and some bittering hops. Nothing here is big and a good word for this beer is "subtle." I though it was a well done beer. One to please the novice beer drinker and beer geeks, too.
