3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Gold pour with thin off white. Aroma is caramel, grain and pine. Tastes are almost tart, astringent, faint bitter, grain, sweet malts, light spices. Crisp and enjoyable enough despite the description.

Fresh bottle. Nose is clean, thin caramel with bright lemony citrus and just a touch of whatever makes an amber ale "red" - crystal? Pours a clear, pale amber-copper with an off-white head. Taste is actually surprisingly dry, malt is thin and rather grainy, but this is sure as spit fermented out. Touch of wood and grainy bread, hops are sprizty and faintly citric but mostly kept to a minimum. Seems to be relatively clean, with a light and refreshing body.

Growler from ale yeah. Would not have put his in an amber category. Much closer to an apa in my opinion but whatever. It is an amber ish color. Caramel malt and candi sugar dominate. Faint grassy hops and a bit of pine and resin on the finish. Drinkable seasionable beer but nothing incredibly earth shattering.

Floral aroma. Over carbonated. Copper color. Pilsner bitter taste. Not my thing.

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Atoms of sweet caramel and honey, bready grain, and a hint of grassy citrus hop notes. Taste follows, but the hips kind of die off leaving a sweeter malt character. Decent fit what it is.

This was a little disappointing for a spring beer. It had a very hoppy aroma and drinks more like a pale ale than a spring. The beer itself is good, but compared to other spring ales it just seem status quo.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 Comes out of the tap a nice clear amber with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled ivory head. Aroma is malty, fruity, and slightly sweet. Fruit and sweetness dominates the otherwise malty flavor, still a delight. Texture has about average firmness and fizz, leaving a fruity finish. If not outstanding, still enjoyable and refreshing, good for bringing a bit of spring into a chilly day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours clear with an apropos copper hued and a medium-small, receding, white head.
Smell: Honey nut, toasted grain-flecked bread, faintest light brown sugar. Hops throw off some modest notes of citrus peel, mild resin and a light grassiness.
Taste: Malts tasting of toasted grain, toasted bread with a light whisper of brown sugar and honey sweetness. Lightly nutty. Zesty, slightly grassy hops with enough bitterness to balance it out. Drying finish, with a lingering, gentle fruitiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation with a pleasant, sudsy texture to it.
Overall: An easy-drinking ale, not overly hoppy nor particularly malty.
