3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Capitol City, Downtown location in July 2006. Attractive burnished copper colour. More copper than amber. Plenty of flowery hop presence in the aroma, carrying through strongly onto the palate and lingering into the finish. Hops are nicely assertive but not too dominant - there’s a solid, if not too chewy malt backbone. Mouthfeel is quite light but it’s firm enough and certainly not weedy. A very decent amber - much more to it than many other amber ales I’ve tried, which can be a bit bland. Extremely drinkable and most enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the downtown brewpub.
Malt forward. Looks very much like their Irish Red but the aroma and flavor are clearly different. This is a touch sweeter and less complex.

"this was brought back from a recent trip. a slightly above average amber ale, which is always nice. good balance between caramel malt and some flowery hops. nothing too complicated, but tasty enough."

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an amber red hue. Aroma is of sweet malt, specifically caramel. Taste is very malt driven with a sweet tickle on the palate. A quickly disappearing bitterness on the palate with a good aftertaste. Overall a decent amber ale.
