3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought at Champanes,
this ale poured a red, orange, peach color into the glass and had a little haze, the pour gave a nice faint off-white cover that was lasting and left nice spots of lacing on the glass,
the nose had toasted malt, faint fruit that was pear like, a little citrus hops, malt sweetness with a hint of caramel,
the flavors were similar to the aroma, the finish had a light hop bitterness,
the mouth feel was light and creamy with average carbonation,
this beer had a nice flavor and nose of toasted malt, light hops and malt sweetness, a nice drink.

Sample at Volo IPA Challenge. Pours a deep amber with a large off-white head that recedes eventually to a ring. Aroma is slightly sweet, good floral hop notes. Taste is much the same but with a good malt back and a pleasingly bitter finish. Solid and well crafted.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not bad this is one of my favourites from the brewery. Clean brown with light head. Aroma has some sweet malts and a bit of breadiness to it. Flavour is a little buttery and like fresh white bread but it has a nice amout of bitter to it. Medium body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bière cuivrée à la mousse rare, au nez sucré de raisins et de malts caramel ; assez mince, et limpide. La bouche est sucrée dans les mêmes tons, avec un effet de boisé qui persiste longtemps, avec des noisettes en finale. Un genre de rousse qui a l’avantage de son originalité et du certain tranchant de ses houblons, mais qui lasse assez vite avec ses notes parfois bizarres. Correcte, fort acceptable même, mais loin d’un grand cru.

500ml, srcrizz style. Copper amber color with a gray-white head. Toffee, peach and some bready malt. Thin watery body. Slightly sweet an sour with some earthy bitterness. Tastes kind of infected to me.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 I went directly to the brewery to get some of this. It comes in a 2L growler. Pours a nice deep amber colour with a ton of sticky head. The aroma is very malty, almost like maple syrup, with a bit of hops thrown in. It smells very sweet, and pretty enticing. The taste upfront is sweet, toffee, a touch of caramel, biscuity, then the malts make ways for some huge hops. Amazing malt backbone all the way through though. The finish is very bitter, with a significant hop bite, but also filled with delicious barley malts. The body is sticky with a decently fuller mouth-feel. Wow, this one’s pretty different than anything else I’ve had. Not all that smooth, not exactly easy drinking, but still a pretty amazing brew. It’s just so tasty!

Bottled sample at ribeye jacks. Pours amber with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Large caramel toffee and malt flavour. Nice and bubbly. Great aftertaste

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is very malty with caramel, roast and a hint of nuts & cereal but there is a bit of floral hops as well. On the palate it is medium bodied, fairly roasty bitter but smooth and a tad watery for me. Meh, wouldn’t buy this one again.

A great amber ale. Starts off caramelly-sweet like a british ale, but ends off with a nice bitter hop finish. Will definitely get this again.
