2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Clear amber-reddish with creamy whitish-tan head. Aroma is sugar malt with a slight hint of roasted chocolate. Nice bitterness to balance the sweetness. A bit sharp at the end from the carbonation. CO2 and light body contributes to a really nice mouthfeel. Overall a pretty decent shelf-quality amber.

Aroma is very malt forward, some sweetness in the aroma, very little hop character. Taste is toasty, slight caramel, light sweetness with some sourdough bread character coming through and a bitter finish. Very nice appearance, dark amber and very clear with a nice creamy head. Medium body. Overall, a good beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a small fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly. The nose is slightly sweet with a light graininess, minimal touch of floral hops. The flavor is pretty weak and watery with a thin caramel malt sweetness and minimal bitterness. Rather bland beer overall. Lighter bodied, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. About what you’d expect from most Amber ales.
