3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a nice looking and nice tasting amber in the slightly-more-malty-than-a-pale-ale style. Lots of creamy carbonation, a touch of sweetness and firm hop bitterness make for a very flavorful brew.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice balance with hops and malt. Good aroma with a lingering citrus hops. The flavor was a crisp easy drinking amber. Very good brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Tap] Tried this at the brewpub in mid-September. Pours a dark amber color without much head to speak of. Nose is of cocoa powder, molasses and grainy malts. Sweet and bready taste is of toast, sweet rolls and gentle floral hopping. Low levels of carbonation. Not a bad beer. Pretty standard though.

Draft at the pub. Clear and darkish amber with a creamy head. Nose is caramel, cola, cocoa and toasted nut. Flavor starts with sweetish caramel, but the cocoa and toast quickly provide a delicate balance. Near-medium body is smoothly carbonated and well-balanced by the roasty finish.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampler at the Glacier Brewhouse. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Not picking up much in the way of aroma off this. Taste was of nut and roast malt. Mouthfeel was creamy with mild bitterness. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap at the brewery. Draft pour was a deep, dark amber color. Nose had a pleasant caramelly-sweet character which was also noted on the palate. Moderate balancing of hops, with a somewhat soda-popl like quality to this beer with an abundance of carbonation. Easy to drink, even with the abundance of sweetness.
