3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can received in a trade with awlcordell. Hazy dingy gold amber. A nice beige head. This is really pleasant. Some nice complex fruit that includes pitted varieties. Just a bit of bitterness from hops that also bring citrus. Gobs of fruit and it is sometimes like drinking fruit juice. I am not sure it is an amber ale but that doesn’t really matter.

From a can. Pours copper with a thick white head. Aromas of sweet malt, caramel apple. Flavors are brown sugar, caramel, nutty tones, slight herbal notes, and bready tones. Dry finish. This is a really nice amber ale. Dry, nutty and bready. I’d definitely have this one again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can as an extra in a trade...Thanks! Poured into a snifter at home. Hzy deep amber color with a quickly disappearing two finger head. Aroma is bread, cereal, sticky hops, slight sweet pine, and candy. The taste is overall good, but seems to be a little unbalanced. It has a good caramel malt backbone but the hops are very straight bitter. Slight metallic taste. Overall not a bad Amber Ale. Medium to light body moderate carb.

Tastes of citrus, biscuit, wheat, slight sweet malt. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, juicy mouthfeel. Tasty.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can, thanks to Treebute! Pours a nice, clear, copper color with a small, foamy, beige head. The aroma is resin, pine sap, sourdough bread, and peanuts. Sweet and bready, with a significant, resinous bitterness. Light to medium body, sticky, and astringent. Overall, this is not a very pleasant beer. The aroma is a little dank, and the flavor is overly, and unpleasantly, bitter.

Copper in color with a decent head that faded fast. Citrus in smell with an okay initial taste. Good for a hot day but not memorable enough for me to have another.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2014 Can: Thanks, Jeff. Hazy, obscure amber (go figure) body with a burnt beige, silky film that wafts towards the edges of the glass in moments. Aroma of buttery toast, tame Munich malt, earthy, almost English-type hoppage, & a touch of vague fruitiness that I was never able to pin down. Slightly metallic taste, perhaps a touch astringent with more caramel & Munich maltiness, dusty & dirty hops, earthy leaves. Slightly aggressive, hoppy finish, I guess at least more so than you’d expect from a little amber ale like this. Crisp, light bodied. Decent, but nothing more. A little heavy on the metallic notes in the flavor.

Can from Budz! Aroma is moderately hoppy, slightly peppery. No idea what this looks like, drank out the can! Taste is initially sweet that quickly gives way to a moderate bitterness and some great toasty flavors, almost crusty, but short of burnt or roasted. Very complex maltiness but doesn’t fill you up, drying but not astringent finish. quite good. would repeat for sporting events much and more.
