3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper with a small off-white head that leaves a film atop the beer. Notes of toasted and amber and caramel malts, with leafy hops. Very simple, which is fine. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, dry mouthfeel. Straightforward amber with a good balance of several malts.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Called American Amber Ale at the brewpub. I popped the growler screw top and instantly got this dank aroma that rushed out of the neck of the growler. Cool beans. It pours with a clear copper body that has thick gold edges and supports a light tan head. The aroma offers up a dash of malt sweetness amid roasted malts, spicy hops and full up earthy dankness. Nice. The taste starts with a mix of spicy hops, floral hops and a modest level of roasted malts. Behind those notes lingers thin strands of estery like fruitiness. This has a nice flavor and the play between the roasted malts and spicy hoppy dankness works really well for me. I will definitely get more of this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber pour, off white head. Light aroma of caramel, biscuity malts, slight hops. Flavor is a nice mix of caramel malt and hops. A bit hoppier than most ambers. Finishes with a hint of tropical fruit.
