3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, shared with multiple others at brew club. Pours a minimal off white head, over a clear amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is mild cereal, light toffee/caramel, minimal hp notes....taste is strong cereal, minimal toffee/caramel, finishing with light hop bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation medium. This is a very light beer which needs an increase in the malt bill. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bar bottle: pours rich amber color with good head. Slightly malty aroma. taste is slightly sweet caramel flavor finishing with a resin, piney finish with a lingering finish Billed as an American Amber, it lacked the hop aromas and clean finish that would place it higher in my assessment.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Aroma is hoppy at first, but then I picked up the caramel malt. Pours a deep amber color with a good head and lacing. Caramel malt flavor up front with a bit of hops on the smooth finish. Good amber.
