3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2010 Rated 3/7/08. Solid. Pours a real nice hazy amber color topped with a thin head. Still decent lacing left. Mild aroma, some tropical fruit and caramel. Flavors are nicely balanced. Slightly fruity, caramel, toffee, hops. Mild finish. Very easy to drink. Quite good for a usually boring style.

Pours copper. Aroma is mild malts with some yeast. Flavor is caramel and nuts. Very plain regular amber. If you don’t like the amber ales, not something you will kick yourself for missing.

Slight sweet malt nose. Rich amber with reddish hue. Had a nice caramel/toffee sweetness. Good carbonation. Not my favorite style, but a very enjoyable Amber Ale.

bottle poured an amber in color with over the top carbination on the pour producing a white three finger head that overflowed the glass a bit. in the head were a few floaters resembling ground nutmeg. aroma has caramel malt, touch of dark fruit, and a little nuts. mouth feel is medium light again with heavy carbination felt on the tongue. flavor is malted for the most part but not bitter, has some light hops, and finishes with malt and some dry nuttiness. good drinking beer with more yeasty spice as it warms

Amber color with some head. Not a whole lot of aroma but what there is is little malt. Light hop tastes balances with the maltiness.
