Malty and spicy. Nice flavour for a lower % alcohol brew. I thought the % was much higher than 5.3, or it was just really good. Recommended.

Sample at the Brewpub The amber ale poured clear dark amber with a white head and lacing. The aroma was of caramel and toasted malts. The ale was balance between a sweetness and floral hops. The ale had medium body with average carbonation. The finish was clean with smooth tones of caramel malts.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crimson pour with a small eggshell head. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar and a touch of citrusy hops. Pretty run of the mill amber. Nothing offensive but won’t get another.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Off the tap with one finger of head on a cloudy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is citrusy and honey, pretty nice.
The taste is mildly sweet with a hop spicy middle.
It’s smooth with moderate carbonation.
Here’s a good beer with some unique flavors and still an everyday drinker.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Amber beer that drips of caramel and cocoa which is a strange target for this style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; poured a clear orange/copper type color with not much head. Aroma of caramel, toasted bread, and fruit. Mouthfeel was a bit fizzy, but not too bad. Alot of caramel and toast, some fruit. Not amazing, but solid.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber in color with a white head. Toasted malt, bread, toffee, and caramel. Light floral hop qualities, some hints of pine, and a little citrus peel. The flavor is very sweet and malt forward. Lots of toffee, caramel, and bread. Floral hops, light pine bitterness, and some citrus peel. A little too sweet for me.
