2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep amber. Sweet, strange nose. Small beige head. Very sweet, faintly metallic, light body, finishing with faint hops. Not a bad drinking amber, but nothing to write home about.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Denver Airport: Dark ruby tawny color with a light off-white head and good lacing. The aroma is very malty & spicy with nutmeg & clove, some cinnamon too. Light hoppiness comes through and a very dry dusty mouthfeel. Full body and quite quenching (considering it was 8AM). Not too bad, very clean tasting.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear amber/copper coloured body with a medium white head. Aroma complete of hops and a prolonged maltiness. Light to Medium-bodied; Nutty, malty flavour with some hops and not much else. Aftertaste is just as bland as the taste-nothing showing. Overall, a sub-par amber...even for the already horrible style. I got this twelve ounce bottle from Phil (haddon90) in Knoxville, Tennessee...thanks again Phil!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. This beer formed a small sized tan head with fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. The nose was malty, hoppy and sweet. The flavor was malty, hoppy, and smooth from start to finish. The mouthfeel was a little tingly. This was a medium bodied beer with poor lacing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew poured a large head of foamy off0-white colored fine to medium sized long lasting bubbles that left a fair lace behind. The body is a softly carbonated transparent light brwon color. The aroma is mild with malt and medium hop notes. The mouth feel is tingly with a continuous mild bitter hop note from start to finish. The flavor contains notes of roasted malt hop and a mild bitter brown beer flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear, amber color with a smallish off-white head. Very sweet and malty...but not in a bad way. Not hoppy at all, but that's not a bad thing in this case. Mellow mouth feel with a bit of a sting to the tongue. Definitely a fine ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I really liked this beer. Deep copper color with a thin white head. Hoppy. Hops spring from the aroma. Citrusy taste. Overall a good balance and very enjoyable. Had this beer in Lawrence, KS.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
a vibrant orange offering, like a dry tobacco leaf. over the course of a six pack, the heads were variable : some hot to trot, others perferred to stay close to home. the aroma struggled to get airborne, and every sniff of mine drew quite a bit of dead air along with the predictable signature of toasty amber malts; perhaps a strawberry-like affectation as well, but also an earthier suggestion of sweet baked beans. moderate carbonation delivers those promised caramel grains, with a bit of sweetness and a minimal sour orange bitterness. not bad-- like your average t.v. sitcom, amusing in the absence of anything more substansial, but would quickly becoming boring if one were stuck with it all evening.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice amber color with a medium head. Hoppy in the aroma, maybe even a little nutty? A decent medium bodied flavor. Smooth and dry till the bitter end. The beer growns on you.
