Botella, shared by Plovmand, gracias! Unclear amber brown colour. Well toasted caramel sweet aroma with toasty malt and some fruit. Good mouthfeel. Sweet flavour with toasted malt and caramel along some (dark) fruit and with a pleasant medium hoppy bitterness.

Bottle traded by TheJester. Thanks a bunch. Had this one on my short list for ages! It pours bit hazy amber with a medium off white head. The aroma is quite malty and fruity with lovely hoppy and earthy notes. Sweet hoppy flavour with notes of berries and toasted malt. Some fruity hops as well. Nice balanced and a WORLD CLASS name :)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Malt, grassy hops aroma. Sour hop taste. A bit acidic but passable. Never would’ve guessed this was an amber ale from what I was tasting... may need to try this one again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle pours a clear deep reddish brown with a finger or two of pillowy head. Aromas a mix of caramel/chicory malts and fragrant tropical hops. Taste is similar, and lovely. Mild but persistent hop bitterness is there from start to finish. Sweetness starts to emerge as it warms up in your mouth. I get less hop aroma in my mouth than I did in smelling it, but it’s still there.

Bottle from the brewery store. Aroma is malt and orange peel. Taste is of grapefruit and honey, with some body. Subtle, grapefruity bitter finish. This was nice, a very IPA-tinged amber.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A deep amber colour with a beige head that has great retention and creates patchy lacing. A nice 2mm thickness coats the brew. Aromas of caramel, roasted malts and hop. Nice silky smooth and creamy mouthfeel with a nice dry finish. This is created with all the hop included in this brew. I am quite surprise with the bitterness of this amber ale. Almost like a cross between an IPA and an amber ale. Pine needle taste with toffee and grain malt in the aftertaste. Quite a nice treat which I was not expecting. Goes down easy and pretty refreshingly dry with a nice balance between the bitterness and the sweetness.

Very nice indeed. This is a brewery that is consistently producing good beer.
Deep brown with a moderate head. A sweet aroma - can detect some caramel and just a hint of hops which come to the forefront upon first sip. Not overpowering, just a mild English-ale level bitterness that is then alleviated by a little bit of malty sweetness. The bitterness comes back and lingers for a while.
Really good stuff.
