3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Good Beer, N.Y., June 1. Pours a hazy copper-gold with a small frothy off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel malt. Flavour of grain, caramel malt, a hint of diacetyl, some light sugary sweetness and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. I didn’t much care for this.

Bottle thanks to Lewis. Pours amber with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has biscuits, cake mixture and a fresh spicy hop. The taste has more of the same. The palate is close to medium bodied with a nice balanced middle and finish. Overall, a good ale.

Orange with a white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty basic but no offensive. I get some strong grass and grain notes in both of them. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours basic amber with a slight white head and little to no lacing. Light sweet, malty and somewhat citrusy aroma. Taste is big and malty with a nice sweetness but not too much and a little bit of hoppy bitterness to balance things out. A great spring seasonal that would go great with a variety of meals.

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.
