2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster on tap. Pours clear deep amber/brown with thin head. Light caramel aroma. Surprisingly medium body carries lovely mix of flavors. Overall, this makes for a good solid flavorful session amber with character. This may be their best beer, but i haven’t tasted them all yet...

Pours a rather clear amber with minimal lacing. Aroma is drenched on caramel, diacytel and fruit. The taste is sweet, but not too cloying.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark brown color with a very thin white head. Not a lot of aroma. Definite maltiness on the tongue with a hint of maple syrup. The finish is a bit watery.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark amber with a minimal head and no lacing. The bar’s deScription of this beer highlights the malts in the beer, which is true, because I didn’t really get any hop flavor from this beer. A flat beer with strong overtones of maple syrup.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Boy I didn’t like this very much. Bad batch? For their sake I hope that’s all it was. Pours an amber color with a small head that falls flat pretty quickly. The aroma is lightly fruity but there is no doubt that there is butterscotch and diacetyl in there as well. The flavor has some baking soda and some butterscotch with a light bitterness and fruity character.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My Bottom Line:
Simple caramel malts tend to dominate the herbal hops until the finish in this slightly incohesive Amber Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces atop the hazy amber.
-The aroma is once again very shy.
-The end result is still drinkable, but mostly forgettable and lacking a polished quality.
On tap at the brewpub.
