3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is sweet, roasty, malty, and a hint of fruitiness. Pours a dark clear amber with none lasting white head and on lacing. The taste has a burnt nuttiness quality combined with maltiness. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, surprisingly, I liked this beer. It could have something to do with the beer prior to this one. Will sample again.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malty, fresh, and flavorful. Good hops on the finish balance this beer nicely.
I donít understand the low ratings either. For an amber ale, it is excellent.
Ambers are usually kind of boring, but the Indi amber was so fresh &
Flavorful. I just loved it.
