Bottle 5-03. Pours dark copper/amber; head is minimal and fading. Cookie dough and summer flowers. Nice dry finish, quaffable. Certainly a balanced beer, thought quite tame.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark coppery hue with small head and some lace. The aroma hints of grapefruit, apple, berry, toasted buttery malts, floral hops, and sweaty yeast ester. The taste is very refreshing with bitter and fruity tones. Some caramel malts undertone. A little earthy and woody too. The finish is bitter and dry, crisp. For an amber ale, this one is very nice. It good to have a surprise every once in a while. Thanks Jordan for the Idaho brews.

Deep orange amber. Slight oxidized nose, with grain and bread. Small, sticky off white head. Caramel malts, grainy, bready, medium bodied, finishing with earthy subtle hops. Not too shabby.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mahogany pour with no head or lace. Woody aroma with some malt and a touch of hop. Very sweet flavors, almost cherry like. Malts and hops fill the flavor as well. Medium body with a pretty smooth palate. Not too bad.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has a nice reddish amber color and a sweet malted smell. Taste is a sweet malted flavor and finishes smooth with little bitterness. Overall I am not a big fan of ambers and this is no exception.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber, brown, VERY clear. EXCELLENT lacing, a very beautiful pour. Hoppy aroma, nicely accented with som malt character. Watery hop flavors with caramel. This is a real hop machine for an amber, this even puts mac and jack's to shame in the hop department. Maybe the brewer really likes hops, but I'm not complaining! Slightyly bitter but easy drinking finish.

Dark orange/dark amber color with a light tan head on top. Light citrus notes and some sweet malt in the nose. The body is fruity with a nice citrusy hoppiness that comes across oily. Ok ale.
