3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A lot of breweries are straying from the original malty American amber and are putting out ambers that are just slightly darker APAs. While these are good, Itís nice to see some folks are still doing it the old fashioned way. This is a nice, full bodied malt accented brew. There is a touch of floral hop character in the nose but very little bitterness in the finish. A nice, creamy texture keeps it easily drinkable and the relatively high level of sweetness never cloys. Overall, it works quite well.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a deep amber color with a touch of sediment and clouds, and had a very large foamy off white head that had great retention, and good cling and lacing. Its aroma had a strong floral blend along with some lighter notes of fruit and citrus and a bit of pine. The taste was fairly zesty and fruity with some spice and floral notes and lemon. It was a fairly lively and fizzy body with good carbonation, and was a bit dry and slightly thinner.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at Kelvin Arms, 9/17/13
Aroma: The nose is pretty light, caramel/crystal malts, some grassy and pine hops
Appearance: It pours a slightly cloudy amber color with an off-white head and medium lace
Flavor: Tastes much the same as the nose, on the thin side, it is a little sweet and a little bitter
Palate: The body is light and a little watery, feels a touch thin, drinks easily, plenty thirst quenching
I have this one here due to it just being unexciting. Thereís nothing really wrong here, but it just didnít do too much for me. I honestly canít see how you could really hate or love this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean and sudsy light amber pour with a thin weak head. Nose shows a nice malt sweetness with notes of caramel and malt and a touch of earthy grain. Some leafy/herbal hop notes show as well. Nicely balanced. Flavor is a touch skunk/oxidized. I also get a touch of weird bitterness on the finish. Almost astringent. Kind of meh flavor, thins out and light bodied.
