3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nuts all the way, from the woody aroma, the hazy red-brown beer. Pours a nice off white head that lasts and laces. This beer is pecans and hickory nuts with some biscuits and honey. Woody with good body. Reminds me of an Anderson Valley Boont Amber, but not as hoppy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel dominates the aroma and a mild sweetness from the malts carries through the taste, although it does tussle a bit with bitter hops. A nice-looking beverage that loses its head soon after the pour. Itís in the middle of the Central Waters pack.

Notes of bread, sour tart cherry, and a nice malty finish make this red/amber ale style a nice pour. Great color, too!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer has a mildly hoppy aroma. It is a cloudy, sediment filled, orange-brown color with no head. It is moderately thick to on the tongue and produces a mild nutty taste. It finishes slightly sour and the taste fades fast.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tried this beer in a sample pack on my way through WI. It produced a soapy beige head on a clear red-brown body. Malts and a touch of herbal hops in the nose. Fruit malts in the flavor with herbal bitter piney notes. Touch of chocolate in the taste was unexpected and not welcome in a scotch ale. Strange metallic taste as well. Might have been a bad bottle.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a pale reddish amber with minimal head and lace. Aroma was of sweet malts with a slight fruity hint. Taste was primarily of malts with a moderate hop edginess to finish it off. Palate was decent. Overall, a decent amber brew althought I am not sure if I will necesssarily revisit give what else is out there.

Sits a dark amber in color. Malts dominate, semi-sweet chocolate, caramel, pecan, toasted butter, and a very light floral bite midway through. Smooth and drinkable all the way through.
