3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Samples provided for review. Malty smell when open, with a little Scotch malt in the bargain. Light brown body puts out a nice fluffy head. Crystal and caramel malts can easily be picked up. ops have a bit of grassiness at the IBU delivery system, but there’s also some pine resin in the edge. I catch a little peat from the malts, some dried fig and just a note of milk chocolate. Finishes with a lingering bit of bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear reddish brown brew with tan head. Aroma of sweet malts, some herbal hops, toffee. Taste is all about the sweet malts - caramel, toffee with a little light toast and bread. A little hops at the end though the sweet malt runs through to the end. Nice enough brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, light ivory head, over a clear dark Amber (SRM 20) body.....nose is toasted malts with biscuit, baked bread, herbal hops, balanced....taste is slightly sweet, with toasted malts, mild hop bitterness, balance to the malts......mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, fizzy carbonation. This is a simple, mild beer. It is well made, but almost utterly boring. BJCP 5/3/13/4/6

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Fresh & Easy: Aroma is faint with caramel malts with a chance of hops. Appeared a dark brownish amber color while a thin patch of foam will flatten out. The flavor is bland with only a minor taste of sweet malt but with a dull bitterness from the hops. Taste like a macro amber recipe.
