2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not much for aroma. Straight amber in color (always a good sign for an amber :) ) A light malty flavor with apple peel notes in the taste. A very enjoyable amber, which I don’t usually like!
Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF

very dark amber color. Light beigh head.
NOSE- slightly malty scent, nothing overwhelming.
FLAVOR- slightly bitter at the start of the sip, maltiness comes through at the end. I don’t love the aftertaste.

woah, looks pretty dark brown for an amber. no head. on draft at Rams in Northgate mall. Love the aroma, almost like chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Tastes like it smells but no roasted flavor really. nice carbonation pop to it. Some of the more nutty flavors taste "young."

Clear reddish color. Sorry lace. Caramel malts. There’s some roasted notes and a bit of earthy hops. Light-medium body. Okay beer.

RAM Restaurant. Ruby in color, off-white foam head, only ring remaining. Sweet aroma and taste, only later on turning little bitter. Still OK beer. (Chicago 201510)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a clear amber with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of caramel bready malt, very gentle hop aroma as well. Flavour is along the same lines, with dry bready malt, some toasted caramel and a touch of dry hops. Standard amber that is decently balanced but lacking character.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @ Ram - Kent. Clear darker amber colored beer with white foam. Mostly toffee malt, some bread, and grassy hops. A light nuttiness, some acidic grain, and red fruits. Kind of tastes like toast, caramel, and grape fruit snacks. Bitter earth and grass on the finish. Pretty meh amber ale and also just a ridiculous name.

Tap at the Schaumburg IL location. Mostly clear amber pour with no head. Aroma is sweet malts with a hint of Band-Aid. Earthy, or maybe just stale taste. Meh.

"the most boring beer in the six beer sampler. toffee malt is nice, but the hop presence is barely noticeable and there is little balance. no need to try again. pretty standard amber."

I keep a keg in the garage and drink 2-3 beers each day. I like to drink with large swallows spaced about 5 minutes apart. Given these personal peculiarities, I enjoy this beer more than most
