3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear ruby red, sweet cherry and wood aroma, like a cherry flavored liquor. Biting cherry flavor with an even smooth palate and a crisp finish. Very sweet, and pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Jake for another winner. This one pours clear deep coppery ruby colored, with a 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, sour mashy fruit, hops, figs, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Tastes caramel malty as a base, with hints of figgy fruit, brown sugar, spices, and plum notes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Seemed aged. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a white head. Aromas are of esters, orange, marmalade, bready and a light caramel backbone. Flavors are bready, marmalade. Some decent bitterness. Quite muted. Tastes like this could be an old keg, some oxidized notes as well. Medium bubbles, soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, mostly still, light brown copper with a nice frothy light tan head. Aroma is a fairly subtle blend of sweet caramel malts, English hops and a touch of corn. Starts fairly thick and malty with a pleasant sweetness, nice carbonation, and a pale malty, dry hoppy finish with a touch of adjuncts. I think this brewery needs to change their yeast strain because they seem to make some decent beers, but the yeast in the end is too adjuncty tasting and overpoweringly lager-like. Thanks to IndianaRed for this brew!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a crystal clear amber with nice off white head. The aroma is rich roasted malts, mild piney to grapefruit hops and sweet malts. All well melded and inviting. I also get some grainy malts too. The taste begins with mild pine to grapefruit hop bitterness followed by chewy caramelized malts and some sweeter maltiness. Roasty malts seem to build some toward the finish. Nice offering.

Bottle. Dark amber brown beer with a beige head. Rich malt, light roast, light spice aroma. Caramel malt and citrus hop flavor with some spice. Nice balance. Lingering malt with a bit of citrus bitterness. Just enough bitterness. Easy drinking.

Dark amber with a moderate white head. Butterscotch toffee aroma. Toasty toffee malt dominates the palate with some nutty marzipan undertones and a fruity hop note in the finish. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a nice grassy hop note with some notes of toast and caramel. Flavor has much more of a toast note up front with an earthy wood note throughout and a bit of grassy hops.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This amber ale poured with a modest off-white head. The initial taste was fairly sweet and malty, with a slightly acidic finish. This was a satisfying, but unremarkable beer.
