Bottle. Golden orange with a white head. Earthy, spicy, grassy, sweet toffee malts, and light toasted malts. Pretty well balanced, not quite as fresh as it could be, I bet, but still pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the City Steam Brewery Cafe. Pours a deep amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, sweet cereal, a little fruity, plum maybe. Medium on the palate with a soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, toffee, a little bit of spicy hops, with a light bitter finish. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber pour with a small 1 finger head that fades quickly.
Aroma is very malty lots of toffee notes and slight hint of spice.
Flavor is very 1-dimensional but tasty. Caramel/toffee and very malty. Good be a little better balanced as I don’t get a lot from the hops at all.
Very easy drinker.
For a style I generally don’t like this is pretty good. A little to sweet but not bad.

Draft from Monster B’s, Stamford CT. This is the sweetest amber ale I’ve ever tried, caramel, toffee, buttery tastes with notes of cherries. Not great.

Deep amber pour with a 1 finger head when poured into a pint glass--decent lacing. Lots of caramel in the nose and even more in the taste. Very sweet caramel, toffee, and malt with a light bitterness. Simple, but tasty.

Multi-hued copper/light brown color. Small white head. Malty, nutty, sugary aroma. Flavor is the same. Usually I don’t like this stuff but this one excels.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a bad amber given to me by a coworker who visited CT. Aroma was very nice. Strong caramel and toffee...very full and round. Pour was a nice clear dark amber with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was very full as well. This beer is full of caramel flavor with not much else going on. Very sweet but not cloying. No hops getting in the way of this malt monster. Decent carbonation rounds the beer out. Better as it gets warmer.

Tap. Darker amber pour. Aroma and taste of butter, caramel, malt, and earth. Creamy mouthfeel was good. Just okay.
