Bottle. Clear reddish Copper pour with a finger of head. Caramel, grass, herb, spice. Light carbonation and body. Light and almost artificial Caramel, vanilla and chocolate throughout the body with very light and slightly bitter sweet finish. A bit more body and flavor would be better

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours coppery amber with an off-white head. Aromas of grain, toast, lemony citrus, floral, and a hint of berries. Taste is slightly toasted grain, light lemon citrusy hops, floral, peppery, slight caramel, and light bitterness. Fairly thin mouthfeel, weak carbonation. Overall pretty boring. I like Fish’s organic amber better than this one.

Copper colored beer with a slightly off-white head. Weak aromas of caramel. Tastes of corn mash, some toasted barley, and weak caramel notes. One dimensional flavor. Bittersweet finish. Easy to drink but is forgettable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a moderately clear amber color. Nose is pretty light, with some very faint maltiness to it that I couldn’t quite place. Taste was a little bit like sourdough bread, with some slight toasting. Meh.

2.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours a semi-dark red/brown color and leaves the same colored body with a two finger white foamy head that slowly settles to leave a decent amount of adequate foamy lacing, tries to spider web but has a gentle looking cohesiveness in the display of it. The smell comes across pretty bad in my opinion as its a wretched bland unappealing onion dankness. There are no hops or malts making any presence no matter how many times I smelled this. The taste well, it tries to come back from the bad smell as I did get some dried and somewhat roasty malts, but the aftertaste brings back that dank unappealing onion-ness, and has a dry onion finish. On the palate, its about a light to medium, but not really sessionable, carbonation was actually really smooth. Overall, I think this went bad because I did see the bottling date was "notched" in October. I only would have this again if it were fresher.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours two fingers of head on a hazy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is tropical fruit forward (mango and pineapple) with some pine and grapefruit in the background.
The taste is nicely balanced. Some pineapple sweetness, a bite of lemon bitterness in the middle and finishes on a little honey sweet note.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It has great balance in both smell and flavor.
