3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. This was ok. Pretty sweet but moderately balanced. A bit light and thin all-around. Probably a decent beer for amber/brown lovers, but not for hop heads.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I had this on tap at the brew pub in Flagstaff, AZ.
A: clear medium amber, with a decent off-white head. Good lacing.
The aroma was quite faint and largely reflected some brett r wild yeast.
Tasting seemed to confirm Brett, and right here at the brewhouse! The mouthfeel was off too, being too astringent, nearly biting.
Avoid at this time. .

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light orange with a fizzy white head. Very faint malty aroma and a light malty, oddly enough, almost coffee like taste (or it could just be the tumor in my head) and a velvety palate.

Tap at brewery. Amber pour. Aroma of faded hops, butter and caramel. Flavor follows suit, a bit buttery and hoppy. Not a good mix.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at fbc on 7/6/10.
nice looking pale amber orange color with a soft white head.
very malty aroma... mixed with peppery spice, dampness, florals, toffee and faint pine.
the palate is on the sweet side (especially for an amber)... flavors of wet caramel malt, flowers, a touch of pine and a peppery spiced finish.
it is medium bodied and a bit on the thick side since it lacks a bitter punch to clean it up. 6/4/6/3/13/3.2

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
draft at the brewpub - This brew has a bready malt smell. It has a light flavor of caramel malt with a touch of fruit and mild hops. Easily quaffed, it’s an average amber.
