Sample at the brewpub. Comes a reddish amber with a small biege head. Aroma of sweet malt and fruit. Taste is dominated by the sweet malt, some hops. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark amber/red in color with pretty much no head, aroma is on the sweet side with notes of caramel and sugar. Also in the nose is a tad of spice and toastiness. Flavor is quite strange with a hint of toffee and a big caramel backbone. Slightly bitter finish and medium mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark amber color with a minimal head which was gone by the time it was served. Aroma is toffee with some caramel notes. Taste is very unique, one of the few beers with a toffee flavor and a noticeable caramel kick to it. Quite interesting overall, and one of the better options from the sampler I had.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh.
Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

Draught at the brewpub. Herbal flavour, perhaps soy sauce. Cloudy brown colour with big bubbles on the sides of the glass. Small frothy tan head. The flavour is fruity with some cardboard. Slightly tart finish, unclean and perhaps infected.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Union Square, Pours a darkish amber color with a minimal quickly dissipating head. I would love to write a lot about this beer, but alas it is as unremarkable as it gets. An amber ale manifesting all the latent mediocrity of the style. Well-balanced all that. Malty taste and aroma. Minimal hops, and those annoying sweet notes. Not bad, but I feel like I had this before.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Heartland Times Square, New York, NY. Mahogany colour, small head. Heavy caramel aroma. Medium bodied with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Fudge and caramel dominate completely, making it a one-dimensional one flavour beer. Slight salty bitterness. At least this one flavour is a fairly pleasant one.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Big BBQ, enjoyed while watching free Bob Schneider concert at Madison Square Park. pours is amber, and taste is toasty sweet malt, maybe some slight apple. This is skewed by how much fun I was having at the time so probably slightly high
