Pour was dark amber with an aroma of strong molasses and malt. Taste was again of molasses with a bit of a butterscotch taste as well. Liked this a lot. Deserves a bit more than a 21 on the ratebeer scale. Would perhaps buy again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle and served in ye olde pint glass: Yep it is amber with a fading frothy head and okay lace. Yep is smells like caramel and bread with a dash of floral hops and some acidic fruits. Yep the taste is rather ordinary with sweet malt and some apple like acidity supported my very light bitterness. Yep the mouth feel is just there, not offensive nor exciting either. Yep this is a run of the mill Amber, yep.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Picked up a six-pack from Bob McFarland’s Liquors in McFarland, Wisconsin. Pours a brown coppery amber brew with a fast dissolving iff white head that leaves behind a fine film. No lacing or ring after dissolve. Aroma of caramel malt, flowery hops, and a touch of overly ripe apples. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated, with dark bready malt, some oatmeal and a touch of leather. Finish is slightly dried citrus peel, some soy sauce and a metalic texture in the aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I thought this a relatively pleasant amber ale that tasted very much to me like a Marzen/Oktoberfest with its fairly rich malty taste.
Appearance is a somewhat sparkling copper red color with decent head formation which dissipating a bit too quickly for my liking. Aroma is malty and bready; like a sourdough. Taste is very malty and bread-y, and tastes a bit like a decent Oktoberfest. Mouthfeel is fairly sticky and not bad. About average drinkability.
All-in-all, not a bad beer.
