3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to Haley for this one.
Can was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice semi-dark red color with a one finger white foamy that dissipated within about a minute. Light messy lacing falls all over the glass.
The smell was a deep roasty caramel to nutty aroma.
The taste was sweet and roasty through the previously noted aromas.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the palate. It’s got a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation was appropriate.
Overall, I’d have it again.

This one poured a medium orange color with an off white head. Aroa was of caramel malt and grassy hops. Flavor was similar, moderate bitterness to keep it balanced but nothing stands out.

Thanks Robertdale. Light amber pour with a light tan head. Caramel malt and a little spiciness in the taste. OK beer. OK lacing..

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Location: 12 oz can (as pictured) from Buy Rite, 3/7/13
Aroma: The nose is buttery, with some caramel malts, a little wet paper, and some metallic notes
Appearance: It pours a hazed reddish color with a small off-white head and medium-plus lace
Flavor: The taste is pretty much the same as the nose, which is to say, not very good at all
Palate: The body is light-medium, it starts off okay, but the mid and late palates both feel unpleasant
This one is a total stay away for me. It didn’t work at all. Way way too many of the components of it seems like mistakes/flaws. Don’t bother...

Hops & malt nicely balanced. I always start my visit to High Noon with a pint of Annie’s before moving on to another style.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can.
Aroma: fruity, toasted malts, bready
Appearance: this is golden/ down right yellow, not amber
Taste: astringent/ husky, fruity, roasted malts
Palate: thin a little dry/ astringent
Overall: this needs some refinement, watch the astringency and this would be a nice beer.

Served at great american beer festival 2012. Really not a great example of an amber ale. Not great at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear amber with a weird nutty/grainy aroma with a touch of rusty caramel and some earthy funk.
Taste was weird and nutty with some earthy caramel and some leafy citrusy hops, which are very subdued.
