2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: light amber with thin beige head. Aroma is caramel and bisquits with a soft floral note. Flavor has a dry grainy bitterness, some hay, a touch of caramel, and a mild floral hop ending. Ok beer a little blah on flavor and bitter seems a little out of balance.

Pours an amber color with a copper hue. Aroma is mildly floral with a slight sweetness to it. Taste is bitter but dissipates quickly. Tastes more like a weak IPA than an amber.

Soft amber, creamy off white head. Nose is roasted malt and muted hops. Slightly bitter on the tongue. Bitterness grows through the middle (they like their hops earlier in the boil). Finish is bitter and pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tastes just like a strong English Ale. Body is malt and bitterness with warmth from hops rather than crisp aromatics. Alcohol is subdued and finish is long. Would be an excellent beer to start the evening with.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Easy drinking amber ale, rusty colored and refreshingly smooth mouthfeel. Nonetheless, itís forgettable. Like the 9th guy in a batting order, this one filled out the remainder of my 6 glass sampler order. Iíd like to try this one out of the bottle, since itís a bit of a delicate flower that needs undivided attention.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice hoppy aroma slight malty smell. A hazy deep amber color with a small off white head. A grratnhop flavor. Not too bitter and a slight malty flavor with earthy notes. Itsa light/medium bodied brew with good carb. Overall its a fantastic brew great flavor id buy this over and over. For an amber its a bit to bitter and not as sweet as what id expect.
