Tasty amber ale, but nothing special. Would not seek this out back home in New England, tried it while in Vegas.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This pours semi clear brown and has a big beige head. It looks and smells like a brown ale. Plenty of grain and malt with a bit of chocolate. Clearly no hops in this and, despite the style, I wish there were. This is pretty much like drinking a glass of brewers grain liquid. There is a little spice that comes late. It might be rye. Somehow this is a little too slick as in a macro "dark" beer. I am not a fan.

Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured dark amber with a dingy white head. Nose is malts and earth .Medium body .Flavor is on the sweet malt side with little hops showing. Maybe some nuts. Finish is not very exciting. Drinkable but that is all.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to Ed. Bready, sweet malty aroma. There flavor is bread crust, fruity yeast character, toast. A bit one dimensional.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Ed. Pours a clear dark copper color with a large white head. A dusty malty nose. The flavor is sweet and malty with some toffee, odd bitterness in the brew, earthy. Very mellow. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Toasty, lightly sweet aroma. Bread crust/toast and caramel, sweet malt flavor. Herbal hop flavor and mild bitterness. A little astringent. Nice malt flavor--but it vanishes fast.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rusty copper orange with a one finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, woody hops, caramel, and some light fruits. Taste is toasted bread, sweet malts, light caramel, woody hops and some apples. Has a medium-light body with a watery mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium-short finish. Overall, a rather bland but drinkable Alt.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I thought this was an all around pretty tasty beer. Not too sweet, it has a noticeable heft to the body, yet it goes down smooth. Quite underrated in my opinion.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance was clear amber brown with huge rocky lasting 3 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are slight malt sweetness, wheat, toasted bread and hints of yeasts. Taste are sweet malt backbone, nutty toast and caulky yeasts. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with light-medium body, lasting yeasty dryish finish. Needs something...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap: light tan pour with thin off-white head. Aroma is toasted malt bread. Flavor is light tea bitter with a very light malt sweetness and some grainy notes in between. Not my favorite beer from GB, too light on flavor and the gritty bitterness is not to my taste.
