2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle. Pours dark, slightly orange amber, with frothy off white head. Plenty of caramel on the aroma, with some pretzel and subtle nuts as well. Flavor is balanced, with enough to hops to impart a subtle bitterness. Initial flavor is caramel and hay with this subtle hop bittering, but the finish is kind of odd, leaving a chalky, dusty feel in the mouth, with tones of nuts. Not bad, but will not revisit.

This nice amber beer had little head. It smelled sweet and roasted with hints of alcohol. The flavor was similar but more malty and dark. It was very faint and watery though. It could have been better.

balanced throughout. Roasted oat aroma balanced by excellent hop charecter. the balance continues as you take a sip, unfortunately the beer is rather thin do to the fact that it is 3.2

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown-amber with a nice, foamy, tan head that slowly fades. Has a nice hop, grapefruit and pine taste, with a slightly bitter finish. Fruit, caramel and roasted malt also show up in the taste. Has a nice hoppy/pine aroma. Satisfying and pretty easy to drink. Would be nice to have on a cold day. I wouldn’t mind buying this again.

This has a light citric and metallic aroma; mild caramel malt background with a slight bitter finish; reasonable balance; moderate to light bodied; not too bad, really.

Pours a cloudy amber color. Aroma is fruity and sweet malt. Taste is grassy maltiness...notes of caramel, molasses and some hop bitterness. A bit on the watery side. This is just ok for me.

This looked and smelled like an amber ale but tasted just like a porter. Fortunately I like porters so this one gets a good rating from me.
