2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle thanks to cparles! Pours cloudy pale red-brown with 2 finger head. Nose is fruity roasty nutty. Seems a touch over carbonated. Taste is roasty malt and nuts with some apple and apricot. Finish is slightly tart (bad bottle?) and roast, some smoky notes, apple. Might have been an off bottle, a little strange.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pretty standard American Amber. Big and sticky, with rich caramel and toffee character. It’s kinda nice since everyone wants to do some "IPA" thing, this is a nice change. (#5216, 8/27/213)

Hops are not very pronounced. Fizzy first taste, with a caramel flavor (Amber Ale), but with a slightly metallic after taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber brown with 1 finger head that quickly dissipates with light lacing. Aroma of caramel, maybe a little rye, and grilled toast. Starts out moderately sweet and continues throughout that way,bu some mild bitterness comes into the finish. Herbal/floral hops. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Clean on the palate. Medium finish. Very drinkable beer.

22oz bomber poured into an English Pint. Pours a clear dark amber with a thin bit of off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and roasty malt. Taste is light bitter. Roasty malt with caramel and coffee. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I would drink this again but I wouldn’t seek it out.
