3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample, July 03. Say this really ain't bad! Nice caramel nose, a rather rich-looking golden hue with some real head; dry-hopped, fairly bitter throughout and with some pungent hints on the nose, very fresh, bitter herbal hints.

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.

Pours a clear copper colour with little to no head. Watery on the palate, and noticeable metallicy taste. Aroma is soft almonds and caramel malts. Finish is slightly hopped but mostly watery.

Translucent brown with a thin head. Aroma of earthy malts. Bitterness in both taste and especially aftertaste. Slightly sweet, citrus flavor. Medium body and minimum carbonation.

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

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.
