(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.

Toasted biscuit malts, a touch of earthy hops. Flavor dissipates quickly. Sessionable except the abc would get ya in the end. Forgettable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours deep coppery with 1-finger well-retained head. Nose is Munich and vienna malty, with a bit of hops. Tastes very malty, like a souped up vienna, with backup hops. Pretty bodl and hefty on the palate, and reminds me of a marzen on the finish. Decent.

Pours a clear amber with medium tan head that dissapates in like 15 seconds. Aroma very sweet caramel biscut, almost sickly sweet. Flavor nutty sweet earthy, all malt very very very sweet base. Needs something to balance out flavor. Way too sweet for my liking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An amber with the usual malt sweetness and hop bitterness in balance, but with an added bready, nutty malt note that I don’t find commonly in this style. An interesting take on the style.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Rivertowne on North Versailles. Not bad amber ale, it does lack aroma (I’m thinking this is the norm with this brewery). Not a lot here, nutty and tart flavor. On style for an amber ale, not as hoppy as I would enjoy. Do abale.
