UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Draft at beer fest. Pours clear copper with a small off white head. The aroma is muted floral notes. The taste is light bitter and dry bitterness. Not a favorite from a solid local brewery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Fado in Philly. Hazy medium amber pour. Started with a large mostly white head that left some soft lace. Strong aroma of both malt and hops. Tastes of a subdued Begium Dubbel halved with a strong IPA. Bitter overcomes sweet. Portobello mushrooms. Wet autumn leaves. Burnt bamboo. Peppercorns. Light brown sugar. Tangelo pith. Celery. Plum pits. Strong hop character. Medium body. Some nice things going on. Could go either way on this but I will give it the benefit of the doubt.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
THOUGHTS: Very strong aromatics. But that aroma wasn’t entirely pleasant. It was a little harsh actually.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium amber with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had heavy grain cereal and caramel; light to moderate pine and minty hops; light orange hops; and something off. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was heavily bitter and lightly sweet with and average to long duration. There was caramel, grain, cereal, orange hops, pine hops, and citrus rind hops. The light to medium body was leaning toward medium and was a little syrupy with fizzy carbonation and a rather metallic finish.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a semi-transparent amber with thin off-white lacing. Smells sweet with notes of caramel and toffee. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, and a fairly easy drinker for an amber.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an auburn-copper color with a light foamy head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy with hints of floral and citrus-pine notes. Flavor is very hoppy for an amber ale. Almost what I’d call an IPA, but on the sweet end. Very well balanced. Finishes with a bit of pine flavor and slightly thin, but good.
