3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-dark red / brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Some trickling lacing slides down the sides of the glass.
The smell was a grainy sweet caramel maltiness lightly hopped in a slight bittersweet sort of way.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me with a semi - rolling sweetness over my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good beer I could down again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample from a bottle left by the rep at Boulders on Broadway. Pours a clear, bright orange-amber color with a ring for a head. Notes of amber and caramel malts, mixed fruits, leaves, and sugars. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Very plain amber.

Pours red-orange with a tall, heavy, vanilla head.
Aroma is sweet caramel, butter.....
Taste is pretty much the same.....malty, sweet, with a light earthy hopping.
Creamy with a bit of a tart tanginess in the end.
A little weak-bodied, but still pretty decent.

Acquired from hayduke, thanks Ron! It poured a dark amber color with a white head. The aroma was malty with some roasted notes and caramel. The taste was somewhat sweet with some bready notes and it finished very smooth.

Could just be my love for ambers, but the nose on this organic amber is distinctly rich, offering up abundant caramel. This amber does not have huge depth, but presents well and bears the hallmarks of refreshing clean flavor to be expected of the variety.
