3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma of heavy caramel, dark fruits, light grassy hops and a touch of chocolate. Taste is very sweet and grainy. Caramel and dark fruits prevail with a smattering of citrus and the aforementioned grains. Just a shade of bitterness. Overall, not to bad, a bit maltier than I had expected, but has more character than most ambers on the market.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a pounder bottle. Nice big brown clear pour with a tad of orange red. Smell is a bit cloying but yes, some hops poke thru to the olfactory. Taste is about the same but there is this mild tartness in there that gives it a bit of a farmy effect,not much tho. Some very mild barely detectable carbonation. Ropey and leathery at times, could be a little more well behaved. Will not appeal to a lager lover. Slight sweet medicinal finish. Sometimes I thought I was sipping an ipa. There, you have it.

This brew had a nice, deep amber colour. It had a soft caramel undertone with a malted mouthfeel. Very light as far as abv goes, but a nice touch of hops in the finish.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2011 On tap at the Green Bay Brewpub. I normally donít bother with ambers, but I needed another 8oz sample, so I went with it. Amber brown with a creamy beige head. Malty caramel nose with a touch of hops coming through. Malty caramel flavors that are followed by citrus, apples, and floral hop notes. The hops are fresh and strong for an amber, lingering long in the finish. A tasty and drinkable hopped up amber. 7/3/8/3/15
Sampled at the brewpub in Milwaukee.
Clear amber color with a white head. Caramel sweet touch of hops in the aroma. Sweet with a nice dise if pine grapefruit hops. Solid. 7/3/7/3/14
