3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head. Caramel and toffee malts with a lot of toast and bread on the nose. Creamy sweetness, minimal hop profile, just a bit of a floral note. The flavor is a touch watery, but decently sweet and malty. Some toffee, caramel, and toasted bread. A hint of metal on the finish. A bit of grass, too. Surprisingly decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark brown, almost black pour with a late forming light tan thick head. The aroma is a bit swampy and funky, even a bit smoky. It also has some pleasant malt. Flavor is grassy and funky. There is some light fruit and in general this beer is sour. Actually, it is the closest to a sour style as any Amber Ale I have had. Certainly not what I expected but it was fun.
