Amber pour with a nice but quickly dissolving head. Fairly bitter start to finish, not as malty as expected. Almost a hint of spice and slightly citrus aroma, but not really that much going on. Just ok.

Pretty dismal in my opinion. Pretty flat tasting. Not anything redeeming about it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Weak head, dissipates fast. Not much aroma, maybe some malt. taste is nuttiness followed quickly by pretzel yeast, then gone. Not a hint of malt sweetness/clover/floral. Boring and disappointing. But it is drinkable so thatís a plus.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy copper brown, brief white head, nice effervescence. Aroma slightly sweet, biscuit, caramel malt. Taste follows, but with a solid hop backbone (usually its the malt providing structure and balance to a featured hop profile... this is the reverse.) Palate is faintly sweet syrupy. Overall... ad I have become increasingly disenchanted with ambers... this one ainít bad. That hop backbone keeps it from being overly sweet and one dimensional.

Draft. Deep red-copper color with thin off-white head that dissipates quickly; substantial lacing. Light biscuit malt aroma with faint cinnamon notes. Rich toasted biscuit balanced with done bitterness in the mouthcoating finish.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared by me, in my dining room, just now.
Pours a sort of brick red with a small head and some spotty lacing on the glass.
The aroma is malty, it smells like bread dough and wet grain along with some light caramel and leafy hops.
The flavor is mildly sweet with a nice leafy hoppiness, itís got a little caramel & lots of maltiness. Itís nicely balanced with a good bitterness & has some light fruity elements.
Better than expected, but still just sort of one of those red ales the likes of which arenít to my taste.
