3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle via trade. I was honestly expecting nothing from this beer and found out it was really decent, nah this is a good amber. Poured an unimpressive honey brown body of a slightly thinner density with a foamy quick fading super light beige head. Aroma is where this one started to pick it up, lots of caramel malts, toast, nut shells and even a hint of peanut butter. The body is a little watery with strong carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste, sort of sodaish. Flavor is like the aroma, light caramel malts, some slight molasses, toast, amber malts, cereal grains. Solid stuff that I could sip on.

Well, this seemed closer to an IPA than an Amber. Nicely hoppy, with plenty of malty. caramel flavors to back it up. Some subtle fruity notes, too. I liked this more than I expected.

Pours reddish brown, with off white head. Basically a sweet malt aroma, a bit of some nuttiness. Flavor is more of the sweet malt and nut. Maybe some caramel. Something is just cant place it. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear burnt-amber ale with a ridiculously huge, frothy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. Either this is over-carbonated or it’s in the early stages of infection. The nose boasts caramel, nuts and toast. Full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet -more bitter than sweet - with caramel and citrus rinds really standing out. Lengthy, metallically bitter finish. Overall, this beer is disjointed. The rindy, metallic bitterness doesn’t meld at all with the caramel sweetness. They are entirely separate, ill-timed components. However, despite its flaws, I actually enjoyed this one overall. The entirety is definitely greater than its fragmented parts. I can’t for the life of me remember who provided this one, but thanks.

Decent amber. Very roasty and malt forward. Toast, bread crust, nuts and dark grains. Subtle sweetness. Mild grassy bitterness. Somewhat drying.
