3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours reddish copper color. Thin head, splotchy head.
Aroma is more like a brown ale. Plenty of malts. Toffee sweetness. Bready.
Taste falls flat. Its okay. Plenty of malts, not a lot of hops. The balance leans more toward a neutral sweet. A little bitter on the finish. Not a lot of flavor.
Mouthfeel is medium. Smooth, clean and slightly bitter finish.
Overall its a little boring. I don’t know that its worth trying.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a slightly hazy copper color with a very small off-white head, and the aroma is toasted and caramel malts. The taste is slightly umami, slightly sour, and a touch sweet, and the aftertaste is slightly nutty and more like a brown than an amber. The palate fuses a slick texture, medium-light body, and a soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is a very clear amber color in the glass and upon it sits but a little ring of head. It has a malty nose w/ some toasty notes and some toffee. This is medium bodied and just a bit sweet and that sweetness brings w/ it a pretty nice malt character. It finishes w/ a bit of grassy, earthy bitterness.
