3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the bottle to a cloudy amber-brown hue with thin off white head that disipated quickly and left no lacing. Nose was very faint, but what I could detect was a mix of hoppy fruit (apples) and malty chocolate. Mouthfeel was on the the thin side with little carbonation or tingle. Taste was more aaccentuated than the nose, as it picked up the fruit and chocolate, which then led to a somewhat watery, short finish.
Not terrible, but won’t go out of my way to drink again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear, almost ruby amber with a large beige head, fading to a film. Simple malt aroma with a bit of cider to it. Flavor weak, vaguely malty, not much there in the beginning, a bit of wort and tea in the middle, some cidery elements and a bit of bitterness develop towards the finish. Thin body, somewhat carbonated.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A typical amber, didn’t jump out at me as anything special. I would choose something else on their tap list.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not a fan. Still haven’t had much luck with Ambers. Stale aftertaste is probably the worst of this one’s bad qualities.

Pours a amber/copper color with a small off white head. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt, dough and light hops. Flavor is nicely sweet but balanced nicely. A very light bodied Amber Ale but still very good tasting.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin head of fine bubbles. Soft malty aroma with a bit of sweetness in there. Lots of caramel, dough and some raisins. Color is a dark amber brown. Light to medium bodied with a noticable bit of fruit in the flavor. Pasty roasted malts, some more sweet caramel and a hint of maple. Finihses sweet and creamy with a slight bit of grit. A decent amber ale and better than expected.
