3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours copper, a little hazy with chestnut hue. A fabulous head of soft creamy foam that fell off oh so slowly like a tease. It really does have a come hither look. Sticky lace and thick cap. Smells great with fat malt and light citrus. Lemon and floral are light as a feather on a bread & biscuit caramel malt spine. Malt opens up deep and sweet. Taste is gentle ,clean crystal malt with a good honey and butter sweetness, slightly nutty, alongside hops that are as gentle as a spring breeze with some earth and floral and not quite too bitter. Just enough bitter to lean in on the back palate. It was a touch watery and thin. Drank smooth and bittersweet and had a silky mouthfeel with just a bit of carbonation to tickle the throat. Really good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Translucent amber with a thin but persistent beige head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation.
Aroma: grassy pale malt, brown or medium-dark crystal malts, a touch of roast, and fallen leaves.
Taste: toasted and caramel malts, a hint of roast, subtle woodsy hop bitterness.
Elements are all there, but lacking life and unity.

Draft at the Hartford airport. Pretty standard-looking American ale -- dark amber and clean. Crisp and cleanly delivered, mellow malt and caramel. Very, very easy to drink. (#4920, 1/17/2013)

An english pale ale with a very floral taste. Other than that, nothing too remarkable.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is mildly fruity, light caramel with light florals. The flavor is light fruits, grainy, mild floral notes, not very much.

12 oz. bottle thanks to Waterbury. Served at cellar temperature. Nice looking beer. ¼ thick head white head sitting on a mostly clear amber liquid. Nose is lightly fruity with a bit of toffee. Great taste of light molasses, toffee and a fruity hop. Not bitter at all. The finish is very clean and short. Hops do give a light spice in the flavor. This is not your standard amber / English pale. It is really a nice brew that you could have many in a session.

Tap @ Bradley Intl. Airport Sheraton: Malty aroma with a bit of spices. Musty flavor akin to a Scottish ale. Nothing really that special compared to some of the top rated Amber ales.
