2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This pours a mostly headless orange amber. It is a nice dry but still malty ale which is quite mild but w/o being entirely bland. It finishes w/ a woody bitterness. Maybe not a stand out but better than average.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear, dark red with a short lasting white head. Aroma is bready and malty, but most apparent is a nutty scent. Taste is slightly hoppy. Nuts overpower other flavors, although bread, caramel, and malts are present. Buttery aftertaste. Altogether, the taste is somewhat weaker, as well as off. More of a watery palate.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a foamy tan head. Aromas of floral hops and malt. Slightly sweet nutty malt flavor balanced well with hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied. Nothing too special; but alot better than some other ambers out there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber beer out of the bottle with a small, short lived off white head. Light grainy and nutty nose. Very easy drinking beer with malty sweetness, some raw grain and toast notes and a grassy bitterness in the finish. I find this style dull, but this is a good enough example.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured into a pint glass. Thereís a nutty sour taste that didnít sit quite right with me. The buttery tone blurred out other aspects. Itís light and wonít make you cringe, but there werenít many aspects that made me want to try it again.
