4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a plastic cup in Seoul. The smell is mild but the taste suprises with its fruitu hoppiness and medium bitterness. Great beer with pulled pork sandwich.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a dark caramel color with orange highlights and a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was some what rough fruity hops, caramel and a bit of crystal malt. The flavor was smooth and malty with notes of caramel, crisp fruity hops, a bit of tartness, bitterness and hints of bread and crystal malts. Medium length finish. Medium body. Pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Medium, foamy beige head with an amber, cherry color. Surprisingly intense hoppy aromas, containing orange, peach, apricot, hints of fig and malt undertones.
Very refreshing, bitter, fruity hops from the beginning, going along with a high, metallic carbonation. Malt plays only a secondary role, aggressive, edgy hops define this ale. Nevertheless the malts belt both, hop and flashy carbonation, together. The end is a bit too watery, with no bitter-, nor fruitiness left, just the metallic taste of the carbonation is still on the palate. A light-bodied beer with a chewy, sparkling mouthfeel, and just a short moment, of warm, earthy amber ale feeling, after the first impression is settled. This adds a pleasant complexity to the beer and lets it stand out from a usual IPA.

Bottle. Pour a clear RED with a thin tan head. Mild malt aroma. Taste is bitter, notes of grass, with floral. Warms to a malty undertone of cereal. Finish is a grassy bitterness. Warming mouthfeel. Very good! Probably one of the best ’amber ales’ I’ve ever had.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
A fine beer for this style with lots of the pine taste from the hops but the malt evens this one out pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice example of this style, quite hoppy, but earthy notes are too strong,good touch of fruitness and malts, four great kinds of hops make their job and summing up - it is obligatory for everyone who like Amber Ale style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a browny red, white head with a high carbonation. Not much to it in the Jose, sought hoppy smell but overcome by the carared malt. Nice taste but the malt ruins the potential of the beer.
