2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear dark amber pour with an off white head. Faint grainy aroma with a some sweet malt way in the back. Taste has a nice hop bitterness and some sweetness to balance it out.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice clear amber copper color,takes on different tones in different light like some pinkishness,and some more gold tones. Solid head,gone soon,leaving a little froth and slight lacing.
Aroma is a bit offensively metallic with slight malt notes,light yeast notes.
Mouthfeel is of slickish light medium smooth,taste just kind of like a mildy roasty lager,thin in taste,with a diet like or light beer taste with it,mineral/metallic. Somewhat of a rough bitter and bad aftertaste. Bad finish. Ok amber but not that great tasting. Not shure if its worth finishing when I could try something better, might just dump the rest. Its pretty though.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber color with almost no aroma. Medium head. Average body. Strength is fine balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness in flavor.

12 oz bottle from a case that my wife bought. She knows to never buy this product again. Thatís about all I can say without being too harsh on this one.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. Clear shiny copper with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is a bit off-putting with caramel tainted by wet, dirty leaf and stale old grain. Taste is slightly better with caramel and dirty tea leaf, and less stale grain. Light-medium body is fairly smooth with carbonation and balanced so as to be easy drinking, but why would you want to?

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a crystal clear light copper with a 2 finger, fluffy beige ehad the has somewhat poor retention. Aroma is toast, toffee, caramel, light wood and cereal notes, maybe a hint of earthy hops. Flavor is very toasty and a little nutty up front, then pretty buttery, some cereal, husky grain and earthy, planty and lightly medicinal hops. Palate is light bodied, a little slick on entry has a moderate strength, slightly sharp carbonation and dry, but still slick finish. Pretty underwhelming, but not terrible as far as Amber Ales go.
