Thin skiff on very dark amber. Nice aroma of caramel and hops. A little thick in body with a sticky caramel. Nice flavours but needs to be cleaner and hoppier.

Transfer from BA review on 6-1-13-
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber color with a 2 finger billowy white head. The head fades rather rapidly leaving a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of lightly toasted malt with some bready aromas and a rather decent showing of caramel. Along with these smells so too comes some aromas of a floral and nut with a small amount of a citrus smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a caramel malt flavor mixed with a rather decent bready taste. As the flavor advances nut flavors as well as a hint of cocoa come to the tongue. While these flavors enter the brew sweetens up a bit but is balanced by some herbal and grassy flavors coming to the tongue more toward the end of the taste. In the end the combination and transitioning of flavors end up leaving a bready and crisper flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the rather average in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both are appropriate for the style and good for the crisp feel of the brew all while keeping the lightly roasted flavors from being sensed.
Overall – A rather enjoyable amber with a slightly sweeter but still balanced flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Sugaya. Light stinky malt/hop mix, coffee, toffee, and some citrus peeking through. Copper-brown color, tan head. Rich caramelly initial, earth mid, and a light smoky note. Medium body, and bit dry in finish. More highly hopped than most ambers. Tasty. But quite high on the earthiness scale.
