3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 5/16/11
Aroma: The nose is slightly sweet, some caramel and a little citrus
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a thin head
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet with mostly caramel malt flavors
Palate: The body is falrly light (leaning toward medium) and the mouthfeel is clean
Overall, this was a decent brew. Drinkable, but unremarkable, this is a solid, caramel malt dominated, amber ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’m not a huge fan of this brew. Has nice foam quality. The brew is O.K... Its not real hoppy so I’d say it’s an easy beer to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a clear deep medium amber color with a well-formed off-white head.
Aroma is fairly typical for the style: caramel malt and hops. The hops are slightly earthy with a noticeable cannabis presence.
Like many of HMB’s hoppier beers, the wacky tobacky is a substantial flavor note here. Sweet caramel malt balances earthy, resinous, and weedy hops.
Medium-bodied, maybe a little on the light side, with average carbonation.
A respectable low ABV amber ale overall. Not amazing, but drinkable.
