1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a large creamy-fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish, toasty and malty with sour caramel, tobacco, a slightly off presence and some fruity hops. The flavor was malty and bitter with honey, caramel, an off presence and tobacco. Fairly astringent. Medium length finish. Medium body. Not good.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 I really had to stretch it to review this one because it is rather outdated.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.
