2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an amber with a thin, off white head. Aroma has floral hops, caramel, and nuts. The taste is heavy on malts. Mostly caramel, and there is a good deal of bread as well. Some cereal flavor. There is a slight pine flavor as well. Short and weak aftertaste of caramel with a hint of pine. Light in body with decent carbonation. Not much more going on here. Pretty basic and unimpressive.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from a bottle. Pours a clear, light orange, with a medium, bubbly head. The aroma is bready malts, floral hops, and not a whole lot else. Sweet and fairly bitter, and surprisingly well balanced. Medium body, clean, and a little flat. This is an easy, solid hoppy amber, but nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear amber with a medium beige head, medium retention. Aromas of hay, caramel, toast, with some juicy floral and tropical notes. Light medium body, smooth, medium carbonation. Lightly sweet, a hint of citrus, then a tasty herbal finish that tempts a big bitter finish, but ends up being a lingering gentle bitter whisper. All this time I thought I didn’t really like ambers.

From the 12 oz. can. Mine was acquired on clearance so it is likely many months past its fresh date. But it still looks nice with its bright amber, heady pour. The aroma has a kind of grape or wine character but that is likely due to its age. But if I sniff deep enough I get a little roasted malt. Medium texture. The taste has some more malts than the nose suggests and it has a mild bitter finish. I really had to stretch it to review this one because it is rather outdated. Next time I will try a fresher one.

Clear amber. Malty nose with balancing bitterness. Pretry tasty and I’m not a huge fan of ambers.

Can. A really nice amber ale. Clear copper-amber color with a small head. Aroma was a toffee-malty aroma with hints of floral-hops. Taste had hints of toffee with a slightly sweet upfront taste and a slightly bitter finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at the Terminal Bar. This is a pretty nice looking beer, clear red with a small white head. Aroma is biscuit and toasty with mild hops. I get suggestions of caramel and butter. The flavor is malt forward and a little crisp. There is a lingering sweet/buttery thing in the flavor but it’s faint. I can’t tell if it’s an off flavor or is just coming from the specialty malt. This is a fairly serviceable amber ale.
