Decent. The nose is citrus and floral hops with a touch of bread. The beer is golden, a little light for an amber ale, with a white cap. Bitter with floral and citrus notes. Crisp finish. More like a pale ale or blonde than an amber ale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark copper with a thin foamy head. Smells like a faintly grassy pile of amber and crystal malts. Taste is pretty crystal malty and a little toffee with that typical somewhat-overdone amber flavor, but with a nice delighhtful dry-hopped flavor of some grassy tones. It’s all kinda light, even the dry hopping flavor. But it all kinda works out as a nice, easy going, no frills brew. Tasted really "session" even though it’s 6%

Just ok. Nothing fabulous. Still drinkable. Listed as a hop session beer, yet not hoppy, but low alcohol

Copper pour with thin head. Nose of caramel and toffee. Taste is hoppy and fades quickly. Carbonated palate with a thin finish. Decent flavors for a low abv beer.

Light, brown, clear pour with 2 finger head in the SA pint glass. Sweet, malt in the nose. A little nutty, syrupy sweet. Med body but the flavor sticks around. Almost coats the inside of the mouth with sweetness. First impression was ok, but it gets better the further you get. Birthday beer #2. 071712

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Copper pour with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is rather malty with lots of caramel, earthy hops and tea leaves. Taste is chewy malt, caramel, toffee notes, floral notes, earthy hops and soft, spicy hops. Body is medium and slightly chewy with a moderate, creamy carbonation. Ends with more earthy and spicy hops, toffee, tea leaves, caramel and malt notes.

Smells like straw, caramel malts, and a bit of sourness. Clear amber with a nice 1cm long lasting tan head. A bit of hay in the taste, bitterness and slight sourness at the end.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rather murky deep gold with a thin bit persistent head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet - almost too sweet - caramel malt. Very malty body, slight staleness, lightly sour but pleasantly bitter hops in the finish. Reminds me a bit of an ESB. Light carbonation, chewy body. Almost... But not quite quaffable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Stale malty aroma. Hazy orange amber with a large beige head. Burnt toast and sugar flavor with a light bitter hop finish. Light to medium body. Not particularly bad, but not especially enjoyable either.
