GABF 2011. Clear dark amber with a frothy light tan head. Aroma of toffee, English honey malt, big cereal grains. Flavor has nice English toffee malts with cereal grains, soft floral bitter hops, balancing nicely. A little on the burnt side, and on a medium body. Average, but not shabby.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draft, somewhere in Austin. Dark red but kinda thin. Another cleanly made beer without technical imperfection, but lacking any noteworthy aspects. There are some vague notes of caramel here, but that’s about all I can say for it. (#5238, 9/1/2013)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Draught House 43rd Anniversary Party. This is my first beer from Circle Brewing.
The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and caramel malt, with a little bit of grain and some grass mixed in.
The flavor is similar. I get some nice toasted malt character, along with some grass and a little bit of bitterness. There is also some nice malt sweetness from all of the caramel and toffee malt. The alcohol is completely hidden and the beer is easy to drink.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Deep clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of fall leaves, and twigs. Tight malty flavor with 30% hops in the finish. Full body and flavor. Too bad this cant be the default amber ’round the world.
