3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours clear copper – gold with thin white head. Does the “mountain” part of this amber prevent it from attaining an amber color? This is the goldest amber I’ve ever seen. The aroma is sweet malts mixing with caramel malts and a touch of biscuit and toffee. The taste has some modest yet vague to maybe pine hoppy notes blending with caramel malts, sweet sugary malts and a touch of roastiness. I think I get a sense of citrus into the finish. Interesting interpretation.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle in a pint. Label says Dick’s Mountain Amber Ale - from their delightful mixed 12 pack. Pours clear, light amber-brown. No head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and something spoiled. Light sweet malty flavor, light-med body, and fruity finish. It’s your typical amber.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium amber, egg-shell head which fades to a ring at the edges. Aroma is a light, medium-darkness caramel with notes of forest and earth. Body is medium-light. Flavor brings out more weed/bark/pine hops with a grainy-caramel touch of sweetness (which is really just barely sweet). Very sessionable... ok.

Bottle. Pours a toffee amber with an average off-white head. Aroma is very toasty. Flavour is toasty toffee with an interesting fruity acidity in the finish. Mildly bitter. Simple but solid, a nice amber.

From a bottle. Very average Amber Ale. After taste a little on the malty side... not my favorite.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light amber color with fairly thin white head. Aroma of dough but a bit sour. Flavor is not really a sweetness you would be looking for, but that same sour doughiness. At least it leaves the palate fairly quickly.
