3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub as part of a four-style sampler. The pour is amber-copper with an off-white lingering head and medium clarity. The nose is sweet marrying caramel malts with toffee and butterscotch esters. Hops played down. The body was medium. The taste is just as sweet as the aroma with a mild but clean hop finish. I liked this one the best of the four I tried.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the source as part of a sampler. Comes to the table a cloudy medium amber color with a smallish off white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is toffee and caramel with hints of chocolate and a light earthy hop. The flavor is sweet with a bready toffee base with hints of caramel and chocolate and some faint earthy hops providing some balance. Medium to light body with a light level of carbonation, and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. This was the pick of the litter today as it had the least amount of off flavors. Mediocre at best but provided the greatest drinkability.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
In short: A dirty muddy yeasty mess with overripe fruits. Problematic.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Ugly cloudy dirty dark orange body topped by a small beige head
In long: The light aroma shows a yeasty character with some ripe overripe fruits. Taste is very yeasty, dirty caramel, a wet cereals sensation, extra-ripe citrus, doughy. This is far from a crisp clean beer. This feels like a muddy yeasty dirty mess. Italian Oasis is not a great brewpub but they can do better, the stout was quite drinkable, but the Cannon is not their big gun.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My Bottom Line:
Caramel sweetness provides a plump body for this muddled Amber Ale, as herbal, earthy hops offer a bit more bitterness than their Moore Dam has.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam tops the murky amber.
-The flavor profile, like all beers I had there that day, was a tad chaotic.
-Carbonation was smooth, but the dextrins took too much room, ultimately hindering drinkability.
-Malts do not offer a lot of different flavors.
On tap at the brewpub.

Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Smells and tastes caramely with a citrusy finish and some earthiness as the beer warms.
