Dark amber, creamy off white head. Nose was well roasted with notes of nutty earth, florals, and hints of milk chocolate. Well balanced flavor with a light hop and caramel chocolate malt mix. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, light bittersweet finish. Nicely done....

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler from the hand pump. Pours a translucent golden amber with an average creamy off white head. Aroma was toasty, nutty, some sweet caramel, light citrus hops and grains. Flavors of the same...actually a nice balance of the malts and hops. Liked the way how this one came together.

Poured dark red with a sizable tan head. Smelled like caramel, grain and roasted barley. Toasty taste which was smooth but one dimensional. Ok.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
sampler. Pours amber/red, small off white head. Didn’t get much of an aroma with this beer. Taste is caramel with some light roasty grain, and it is balanced quite nicely with some bitter and floral hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not spectacular, for an amber or whatever it is. Mildish, not great taste, but I like the cause. More local micros should imitate this.
