2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Caramel, bready malt aroma and flavor. Smells a little "dusty" maybe? Strong caramel; pretty sweet, but not too over-the-top. Moderate bitterness. A little hop flavor -- not much.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from a mixed 12 pack brought home from Wyoming by my parents. Thanks, mom and dad! This one pours a mostly clear amber with a small but long-lasting creamy tan head. The aroma is mellow, but delivers notes of caramel malts, brown sugar, dried leaves, nuts, and sugar smacks cereal. The flavor hits most of the same notes, but with more pop. Light-bodied, with a sweet, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Not a bad amber ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty solid ale. Poured from bottle. Soft fruity esters in the aroma, taste is a well balanced light hoppybitterness with some caramel malt to back it up. Aftertaste lingers of the bitterness. The malt flavor is good but could be more fore-front with some of those roasty malts. It’s semi-light in body, I could probably put 4 of these down comfortable.
