Pours clear and amber with off-white head. Aroma is sweet and light malts with some honey notes. Flavor also reflects the nose and is mostly sweet malt character with slight hop profile. A very good amber.

Consumed at the brewery as part of a flight. Beer has malt on the nose with a touch of hops. Pretty amber color in the glass. The taste is malt, malt, malt - it’s a complex malt mixture that is great on the tongue.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Mostly clear darker amber color. Good thin slightly off-white head. Respectable lace. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Caramel and toasty malt, malt-forward flavor here. Some light hop fruitiness. Kind of a more rich, sweeter taste. Very light bitter. OK amber ale, but not really my style. A bit heavy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Surprised I hadn’t rated this, been around it many times. 12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Amber pour with a thing off-white head that leaves a soapy ring. Aroma is sweet malts, nutty, floral. Tastes are caramel malts, cocoa, background citrus, little bready. Pretty good. I’m not that big an amber fan, so well played.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Sybarite Pig. Tulip. Deep amber hazy pour with thin white head. Toasted malt aroma with cereal and oats. Taste is simple with fairly rich malts, cereal, light hops and light fruit. Slightly sweet. Finishes dry. Nothing very exciting.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very mellow, malt-based aroma that offers little else, while rich in this respect. A barely brown appearance that makes you think more of orange. big bubbled decent head. Tastes like it smelled, just watered down, ie it lost some richness to be desired. Sickly sweet, and otherwise empty palate. Borders on boring.
