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.

3.5 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.

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.

A light aroma and an amber pour. A refreshing beer after a short run. Great aftertaste.

Malty but thin and somewhat watery. Nuts, caramel, and some doughiness in the flavor. Not a standout.

(bottle - 12 oz) Amber pour with a thin white head. Very subtle aroma of malts with the lightest grassy hop note. Flavor is sweet and malty at the start but mixes in with a light bitter and peppery hop middle. Some light vegetable notes at the finish and a crisp, dry finish.
