3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Mostly clear amber pour with a nice initial soapy head that fades quickly. Nice aroma of flowers and caramel. Medium to lighter palate, low carbonation. Taste isn’t as good as the aroma - mild caramel, low hop, low carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(retrieved from Midwest notes 08/2013 - Escanaba/MI. PT bottle from Ridgeview Liquor, Green Bay.) Fairly classic, almost too clean amber ale with mainly toasted malts and grains in the nose and caramel and gentle floral hops in taste, muddled by more cardboard edge than smoke. Could have done with a smaller bottle, as an amber ale is not what I’d reach for to quench my thirst.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on draft at Hinterland. Pours clear amber with a medium white head that leaves decent lace. Nose is fairly simple with some bread malt and honey. Flavor is more of the same with honey up front and moving to lightly toasted malt a very light bitterness. Body is medium with active carbonation and a medium bitter honey finish.

Date: December 10, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: BVery Description: Light brown/amber pour with minimal head that went away immediately, mild aroma of hops and caramel, taste was similar but a funky aftertaste that did not sit well with me.
