3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper like a fresh penny, under a thin sticky light ivory cap. Nice Amber and mossy nose with a lovely cardamom undertone. Crisp flavor with a nice Amber nuttiness and smooth Irish moss bitterness. Toast and moss and American amber malt.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at RAM-Boise. Served in a frosted glass, which negates an already weak nose. Decent looking pour, the best feature of this beer. Taste tried to accent some toffee malts, but is ruined by metallic, acidic finish. Weak.

Cloudy Brown with Amber hues, coffee, toffee, caramel saltiness, biscuit, light hop character, slightly cheesy hop note, this may be from toasted malts giving me a slightly oxidized impression

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at the Schaumburg RAM. More hop on the nose, and I also scent a bit of unfiltered yeast. Reddish amber in color. Tinge of roastiness to the taste, like a Vienna version of an English bitter. I seem to taste a few sharp US hops added to the main English hop load.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the tap poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice light malty hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel, toast, toffee, and light hop spice on the nose. Slightly sweet from the ale yeast. Pours dark reddish, thin tan head. The flavor is light and sweet with caramel, toast, toffee, a little nutty, light earthy bitterness, and a clean crisp sweetness to round out this finish. Not a bad beer by any means, just somewhat uninteresting.
