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.

Bottle. Fruity barley malt aroma.. Hazy deep amber with a small ivory head. Just like the nose, fruity barley malt and a very light astringent hop flavor. Body on the light side of medium, moderate carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a reddish brown color with a one finger head of fluffy foam that quickly disappears. Scent is malty with a scent that reminds me of a weak grape juice for some reason. Taste is mildly malty but with decent flavor. Perhaps a little bit of burnt sugars or toasted malts as well. Decent volume and texture, could be a little thicker but it’s fine the way it is. A better than average brew from my hometown!

Pours a rusty amber with a light tan head. Nose is mostly malt. Average to slightly watery viscosity, the taste is mildly of malt with a suggestion on caramel. Muted hops on the finish. I love the name, but this is only an average beer. Pairs well with pretzels.

Fizzy, metallic, slight tartness. A really poorly-crafted amber ale. Too many shitty ones like this on the market.

Bottle: Amber pour has a small off white head. Aroma and taste of caramel malt but verly little complexity/depth. Overall a bit too boring for my likes.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear medium amber with a soft rim head and spotty lacing. The taste opens with roasted malt and stays there until the carbonation asserts itself enough to bring things into balance. Pretty lightweight, but far better than the national brands.
