2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet malt aroma with just a tinge of hop, much as you would expect from an amber,the taste however was surprisingly reversed, hoppier start and finish and very little malt taste. Must not be many finishing hops in this tastey enough

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty mundane nose, with some sweet malts coming through. The body is surprisingly hoppy, although a bit watery. Really unlike other ambers I’ve had. Not bad, just more like a Pale than anything else.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear amber body. Not much in the aroma just a bit of dusty malt. More bitter than sweet flavor. Primarly dandelion hops with some citrus influence over a toffee malt base. Dandelion finish. Light mouthfeel, low carbonation. Well-hopped for an "amber" but still not terribly interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden color with a tall beige head. Mild caramel malt mixes with wild flowers, thorns and light goldenrod. Flavors seem to match the aroma well. Late tartness distracts.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep rosy amber in color with no head. Aroma is pine, cedar panels, honey and grass. Overall sweet smelling, hoppy and a nice change of pace in relation to their other beers. Taste is bitter and souped-up with some caramel and rye. Thin - we’ve got an understanding of the importance of hops, but in doing so, the malts were forgotten. Citric hiss, some fresh cut wet grass, but overall lacking in flavor. Highly bitter and dry aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of floral hops and malt. Taste is malt, roasted grains, and a bit of hops join the party. Color is reddish-copper. It had a thin and watery finish as well as bitter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber (duh) color with no head. Slightly floral aroma. Bitter hops in the taste. It’s very dry and dusty. I could have sworn I tasted a bit of bread.
