ben4321 (4826) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Nikki’s Liquors, 6/12/15

Aroma: The aroma is fairly malty, some earthy and bready notes, and a little citrus as well
Appearance: It pours a cloudy copper color with a frothy beige head and some average lace
Flavor: It tastes similar, fairly balanced overall, not too sweet, not too bitter, just balanced
Palate: It is medium bodied, with a decent mouthfeel, average carbonation, and a light dryness
Overall Impression: Solid enough beer. It has some flavor and a decent amount body, but overall, it just doesn’t quite get there for me. Decent enough, but not my favorite.

As good as it is to be with family on a sunday afternoon I can’t claim it improves the taste of this beer. It’s a fine tasting beer. One I would not seek out. Crisp, slightly malty, vaguely hoppy, sharp and a little harsh on the tongue.

Bottle shared by Matt on man night. Aroma is nice and malty with some bread crust, apple core, and slight floral. Pours amber and a little on the flat side with small white lacing. Taste follows suit with agave nectar, bread crust, and apple peel. Very nice malty and warm mouthfeel throughout. Very tasty old ale. Would have this again gladly.

Nice amber. Malty sweet aroma balanced by a good amount of bitterness. Very smooth and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Perfect mild amber ale to pair with seafood on the Connecticut coast. Right amounts of hoppiness to make it easily drinkable and enjoy the taste of the fresh seafood. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a decent looking pale amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within seconds. Yup, it sure looked like that head didn’t want to last for any possible party that could occur (wow, I never saw any head dissipate so quickly). Anyways, there was some light lacing but that slid for the most part into the beer. The smell tried to have a roasty yet somewhat nutty caramel maltiness but honestly, it was more just some cooked caramel notes about it. The taste was a dry sweet caramel maltiness that had a dry sweet aftertaste. There was a decent dry finish. On the palate, this one sat at/about a light to medium in body with a sessionability that wanted to occur, but I found myself not finding this one as sessionable as I was hoping to as it just seemed like it wanted to be sipped (weird, well, anyways). Overall, hey uh...honestly not a bad Amber ale. However, I’m not exactly sure if I’d come back to this if actually given the chance as there’s just something about the palate that keeps me on the fence.
