2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle poured in to porter glass. Overall dark color, nice carmel smell however taste not quit there with a bitterness that finishes disappointing overall. Found that this Brewers Pale Ale is a better amber/brown ale than this "Amber Ale"

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Easy drinking. Tastes more like a marzen or something than an amber, but that’s what you get when you name a style after a color. Light barley finish. Dark amber with decent head and lacing. Not huge in the way of aroma or anything, but easy to drink. Bottle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2 oz bottle pours a clear dark mahogany with large off-white lead that leaves some lacing. Aroma is full of toffee and grains. Taste is sweet and malty, with a slightly hoppy and metallic finish. Body is medium with average carbonation. This is the 4th brew and my favorite from this brewery. Not bad at all. Since my local Walgreen’s has a closeout sale on Dia de los Muertos beers ($4.49/six pack) I’ll pick up more of these and pass on their porter, pale ale, and blonde ale.

355ml twist off. Amber pour. Smells like a freezer burnt walmart ice cream sandwich. Falvor has light smoke, caramel, vegetal hops, slight bitterness, mint, metal. Not great.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Better head. Same great graphic. Dark amber. Thin toffee in a moderate malt scent. A little burnt. Starts towards metallic, flows smooth and gets the metal back in the finish. Burnt toffee gives it a bit of a Skor bar taste. Sweet enough but flavour gets tougher and dirtier as you go. Stop worrying about need for more hops and less metal, instead looking for a drain. But then the next sip says maybe you can finish.
