3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very subtle minty note, with some nutmeg. Amber, slight haze. Malty, with some tartness. Good body, long finish. Amber is not my favorite style, but this is not bad...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours deep copper with a slight haze. The head is tall, off white and persistent.
Flavor: Toasted malts, citrus notes and bready after taste
Overall Impression: Easy drinking, almost refreshing. We balance between the malts and hops, both support the other and neither is more pronounced.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a thin lasting head, with some lacing over a clear amber body....nose is of malts and no discernible hops....tastes of roasted malts with a bit caramel....mouth feel is light. Overall balanced and beery, but very light to my palate. There are many better.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange amber pour. Moderate head that is rather short lived. Very toasty malty aroma with a soft berry fruit undertone. Beautifully malty. Toasty bread crusts and dark caramel with a subtle sweet stewed fruit note and low bitterness. There is some quality malt in this beer that is the star performer so hop heads may not be very impressed. I loved it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light amber/gold shade with a small white head. Pretty much lacking in anything that makes beer interesting to me, very subpar.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden amber color. Smell is smooth and toasty and lightly malty. Taste is the same pretty much, and has a light bitterness with traditional amber like maltiness. Medium bodied and carbonation and a decent, drinkable session beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber/orange, with almost no head. Aroma is sweet and bready like a donut. Flavor is light, but well balanced. Palate is slick and medium bodied. Overall a very drinkable, albeit uninteresting Amber.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I found this beer rather lacking in taste, palate, and flavor. The light amber color was expected, however, its lightness left me wanting a more robust maltiness. Has a finish that was a bit bitter.

Mass transit has a dark-gold color with a light tan head.
It has a slight hop aroma that is dominated by malt. It tastes brittish to me, diacetyl is present and is accentuated by toasty malt (perhaps victory malt?). There is a prominent hop flavor, but it could be stronger. Not very balanced, but drinkable. I would reccomend trying mass transit.
