3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear ruby color with a medium white head. A sweet caramel and dusty nose. The flavor is a similar robust dry caramel and light fruity hop. OK.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle: this one pours a clear, coppery amber color. There was a small, fizzy off white head that didn’t linger long or leave much lacing at all. Lighter aroma. Caramel malts, a hint of roastiness and maybe a hint of nuttiness. The taste is decent. Balanced without any real sweetness or bitterness. Some roasted malts, a hint of the nuttiness caramel malts and a hint of dryness in the finish. A decent brew!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper color with white soapy head. Minimal aroma of caramel and not much else. Caramel flavor with no noticeable hops. Okay, but weak for an amber.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker clear amber with a nice cream colored foam. Good lacing. Aroma is predominantly malt. No hops. Taste is also mostly malt with a bit of hops and a lightly bitter finish. Carbonation is moderate/high. Overall a good beer but a little more hop presence would be nice.
More beer please...

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Salty malt aroma with a decent sweet matly caramel flavor and some bittering attached but not very well balanced as the malts overwhelm the hops. I like that crisp bite but not the residual sweetness. I’d crank up the hops on this one and it would rock.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pretzel, salty dough scent over a bronze, frothy filmed, pour. A medium bodied, slightly sticky finishing textured feel. Medium strength amber flavor or grain, slightly bready, flavor.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from The Beerhive in Pittsburgh. Just average with nothing remarkable to mention in taste or uniqueness. Could have used a few more ingredients to boost up a rather flat taste and thin body. No need to go back for a second.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, notes only. Amber pour with white lacing. Aroma and taste flat amber malt. Don’t remember getting much out of this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Clear orange amber color. A little over one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and a small ring of lacing is left.
4.0 S: This smells just like a tasty brown ale. Big toastiness and nuttiness. Dry graininess. Very, very little caramel. Earthy hops.
4.0 T: Tastes like a brown too. Again, toastiness and nuts abound. Dry graininess and a touch of caramel. Earthy hops. Pretty much the same as the nose.
3.5 M: Ligher medium body. Active carbonation that comes off slightly biting. Low creaminess. Otherwise, fine.
3.5 D: Not much of an amber ale, but a good beer nonetheless.
Serving type: bottle

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that left a bit of clingy lace. The nose is pretty standard Amber Ale stuff, some slightly grainy malt, light cereal, minimal hoppiness. The flavor is a little weak and watery with a husky finish, not much in the way of hops. Light bodied and thin with fizzy carbonation. Not a whole lot to say about this one, pretty boring all around.
