3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The appearance is a semi-dark red colored body with a nice light carbonation seen rising, a nice one finger white foamy head that dies within a minute and leaves a spectacular nice looking amount of spider web lacing sticking to the glass.
The smell is basically deep dark caramel malts.
The taste is mainly sweet through the caramel malts with a nice sweet caramel malty aftertaste and a dry sweet finish.
On the palate, it sits about a light to medium probably ranging closer to the lighter side and comes across pretty sessionable. Carbonation is very smooth.
Overall, I say this is a pretty good amber/red ale that I would have again.

We did a blind taste test between this beer and 4 other amber ales to objectively determine which one was best. The beers were Full Sail Amber, Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale, New Belgium Fat Tire, Lost Coast Alleycat, and Alaskan Amber. You can watch the video here to see who won:
