3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Caponeís. 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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 donít 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 (Iím 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.

Nice clear amber, Sweet-ish smelling. Medium bodied. Taste is faint caramel with a humongous butterscotch finish. Good with desert but I canít drink more than a couple during the game. Sweet sweet finish. Butterscotch.

Nothing really here - just sort of bland. Easy to drink, but thatís about all it has going for it. This one needs something as it was completely forgettable.
