4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Nice yeast and grapefruit aroma. Good reddish brown color. A fruity bouquet of flavors + a hint of cloves. Pleasant bitterness coupled with a good mouth feel. Nice finish. All these make a pretty damn good ale.

Poured a deeper and cloudy brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Softer aromas of nuts, caramel and hops. Tastes of light caramel, nuts, with a light grapefruit finish. Definitely a hoppy presence for a brown ale compared to the brown ales I’ve had of late.

On tap at the Boom Boom Club S.F. Amber with a short head. Aroma was moderately hoppy, not much going on. Medium bodied and not anything exciting about the flavor. Some lightly raosted malts and a faint toffy flavor is about all.

This one had an aroma of peanuts. Darker amber body with good tan head and lacing. Had a good mix of nuts and dry hops to it. Was a smooth and easy drinking beer.

Golden Caramel in color. Faint hoppy aroma. Whispy white head. Subtle flavor with a strong tang of hops. It’s a little thin and watery for my tastes, though.

I was quite impressed with this one. A dark amber color with a moderate head. A dark fruit filled aroma. I taste caramel, some oak, and cherries in there. Lots of dark malts and nuttiness. The mouthfeel is creamy and somewhat bitter. Poppy Whoopie! I really liked it!

Very good amber ale. Smooth with the expected carmel malt, but this one had enough hops to wake you up and take full attention. Medium bodied, mellow, easy drinking. Very good.
