3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours more gold than amber with an off-white head. The aroma has roasty nutty malt. It has a medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor begins with dry amber ale toasty malt, earthiness and a bit of a dirty taste. The finish is much of the same. This one didn’t do much for me.

Nice floral hops aroma. Somewhat generic malt flavour with a little nibble on the palate but a slightly unpleasant palate effect.

12oz bottle from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. A golden amber pour with a scattering of cream head; caramel malt aroma; sweet earthy caramel malt taste; and thats it. A rather basic amber ale.

Best by date of 08.26.14.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 06.30.14.
A: Caramel and some breadiness.
A: 1/3 finger head. See through red/amber body. The head burns off quickly.
T: Caramel dominates. Bready sweetness and flower are subtle.
P: Too bubbly and watery but satisfying like a lager.
O: This wasn’t complex at all, like a lager. It felt and tasted like a lager too. It’s an older style amber (1989), but it’s boring today.

12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. Nose of malt and yeast. Taste of malt with a little toast, caramel and limited bitterness. Not floral or piney. Sweeter than I expected and not particularly smooth or complex. Overall an acceptable amber ale.

Good ass hops and fresh flowery ass grains on the nose and taste buds. Ahhhh. Always count on full sail for a decent brew. Loads of flavor. Very pleased with this bottle in a pint glass.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Clear and gorgeous deep red-amber with a firm and perfect beige head.
Sweet nose, caramel malt, ripe fruit and earthy-grassy hops.
Rich caramel malt flavor, lo-med bitterness, biscuits, honey.
Medium bodied, a bit too sweet, somewhat tired but overall OK.
