3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a slight clear amber color with a slight transparency about it. One finger white foamy head dissipated within less than about forty seconds. Light lacing trickles into its body.
The smell was a sweet caramel malt with a slight crisp citrus hops underneath.
The taste was balanced between the sweet malts and the bitter citrus hops.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slight sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed decent for the style and for me.
Overall, I say this was a decent Amber ale I could go at again.

Lacking some bite in my opinion, but very smooth and drinkable. A bit more hops would be nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a thin head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is faint caramel, with lemon, pine and cinnamon bring up the rear.
The taste has a mild sweetness that rolls into a mild lemon bitter finish. Great balance.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
Good flavor and drinkability.
