2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
24th February 2014
Hazy deep red - amber beer with a small cream coloured head. Palate is smooth, airy and a little dry. Fine carbonation. Smooth dry malt with a touch of paper and a mild caramel steak. Mellow ripe orange underneath. Dry finish. Too malty but inoffensive.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle from Evergreen Discount into a pint glass. Amber and clear appearance with a light tan head and thick lacing. Dull aroma of toasted malts, caramel and stale hops. Similar flavor, malty and metallic with some off-notes and an unpleasant, lasting finish. Average body with a creamy feel. Not too good, more of an "amber ale" really

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The label is probably the most appealing aspect of this beer. The bitterness is about right for an APA, but it’s all on the back end. Up front you will find only toffee and caramel. And a bit of metal.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Amber in color, with thick foamy head. Has and odd herbal nose with some musty corn. Flavor follow the nose unfortunately. Mostly the strange herbalness up front with the caramel malt and some bitterness. No reason to go out of your way to track this down.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml. Clear copper with a lasting topping of spongy foam. Aroma of spicy and crisp apple, earthy toffee, and a light touch of fresh citrus. Tastes of toasted malt, orange toffee, earthy tea leaf, lightly tart apple, wood and evergreen resin. Light-medium body is too fizzy, but has a nice balance. Tastes like an ESB and is pretty drinkable except for the over-carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
An amber color with a white head. The aroma contains some caramel and odd herbal notes. The flavor is rather malty with some caramel, citrus, and woody notes. This is EPA not APA all the way. The palate is a bit thin. Its ok.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
11.2 oz. bottle. Appearance: one finger of white head that diminishes quickly, good lace, deep amber red, clear. Aroma: caramel, nuts, metallic, leathery yeast, light resin and grass hops. Palate: medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish. Taste: not good, metallic, bitter finish. Overall, rather disappointed; not a good taste, not appealing for style, and just not something that I will ever try again.
