Nicely done ale! I loved the balance of the malt with its slight fruit notes and the bite of the hops.

Thin but frothy head. Rich creamy lacing. Slight bitter aroma. Good balance between the hops and malts. Color is a slightly cloudy dark amber. Flavor is pretty dense with good biscuity flavor. Nice and malty with a good bit of hops. Finish is nice and creamy and thick. Very good stuff that has a lot of flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a beautiful clear dark amber/red with a small beige head. Aroma is malty and a little floral. Taste has notes of toasty malts, caramel and butterscotch. Pretty sweet, moderately bitter with a medium hop presence. Very full, round and creamy on the palate. Solid and well crafted but itís kind of boring.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 A really good amber ale, but nothing I havenít seen before. Mild-medium hopiness and medium maltiness. How much does the picture on the left piss everyone off?

Color here is a dark ruby, but there is no head that I can report. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Malt is huge in this ale, hops have a small role, but still, the body is full, and the mouthfeel generous and tasty. Much more flavorful than other ales Iíve encountered recently. Worthy to associate itself with Irish reds.

On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern...Very standard amber ale...Nothing really outstanding about this beer but also nothing really offensive..as previously mentioned this is an excellent session beer

Nice red amber color with a thin head. Malty aroma. Slight malt flavor with a balancing hop finish. This is my favorite local beer.

A not bad amber ale, whatever that means. Crisp with a slkight hop overtone. A session brew that mainstream drinkers would find adventureson.
