3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at brewery. Clear light amber, almost has a honey-like hue. Great little aroma of toffee covered cereal grains, burnt caramel, garlic toast, and slightly herbal hoppiness. Taste is smooth and nuanced and sweet, like an amber needs to be. Caramel, toast, mild herbal bitterness, sweet yet balanced to drink. Bit of toffee throughout, and perhaps some "German-ness" in the malt as well.

bottle pours a golden reddish color with minimal grey head. Aroma of light caramel, some bark. Balanced flavor, lightly hopped on the finish. Caramel and some nutty flavors. Not a bad session.

Draft @ taproom. Clear copper to amber, warm color, nice lacing. Nutty malt aromas and flavors. Finishing balanced with good malt character. Caramel malts predominate, but finishes crisp with a nice aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber and slightly hazy. This has a light caramel nose. Slightly earthy, bready with fresh cracked malt. Not bad for the usual amber thing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle, medium lacing, white foam. Aroma of toast and malt. Some sweetness, light bitterness, faint hints of spice, maybe cinnamon, maybe something savory and herbal, can’t quite place it.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a fairly clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt and yeast with a hint of hops. Smooth and easy to drink. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Murky, unfiltered orange-brown. Creamy, steady head. Mellow aroma. Smooth and malty, a little underwhelming. Pretty sessionable, with a watery mouthfeel. Mild hop balance, not much bitterness. Malt centered, standard fare. Inoffensive, drinkable.

This is probably my least favorite beer from Bristol. It lacks character and has a forgetable taste for an amber. Their other beers are by far better than Mass Transit
