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.

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.

Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a small off white head that lingered. The aroma was faintly nutty and malty with faint fruity and a touch of sour caramel. The flavor was tangy and nutty with light notes of lemon and caramel. The finish was medium length, malt and vaguely fruity. Medium body. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is hoppy with grassy herbal hops and malty with sweet caramel malt. The appearance is light amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with sharp bitterness up front and an almost nutty finish. The palate is typical for the style. Overall not bad at all just a little sharp for my taste.
