3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Slightly hazy amber body with a small beige head. Aroma has some caramel malt, biscuit, bread and lots of citric hops, hint of grapefruit and some grassy hops. Flavor is quite sweet, but has a fine bitter balance, caramel malt, toast, biscuit, pine and marmalade. A fine body with a long and bittersweet aftertaste. Too bitter for an amber ale, but why get stuck in styles. This is a smooth and tasty beer somewhere between an amber and IPA. The kind of beer you just need another of if you happened to like beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours almost clear dark ruby with a tiny off-white layer of bubbles on top. Aroma of spicy caramel and faint citrus. Taste is moderate sweet grainy malts, spicy, with a touch of marmelade. Lingering dry and moderate bitter aftertaste, fresh and tasty, shows how well a beer can be at the source, fresh from tank !- Another one, please!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. It’s an unclear, amber beer with a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma is quite hoppy, with citrus peel and pine cones, as well as some sugary sweetness. Maybe a tad too sweet in the mouth, and maybe a tad too bitter got an Amber, but I like it. Citrus peel, pine cones and sugary sweetness, some light roasted notes and a little bready hint. Full body, next to sticky, and with a nice carbonation level. Lasting finish. Yet another fine brew from this brewery, couldn’t resist having one more. 130201
