3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the source. Solid amber as all their offerings are thus far. Nose of clean caramel malt, hint of nuttiness, earth and pinch of citrus on the nose. Taste is the same with more grains and a medium citrus hop profile. Nice very balanced amber that one could drink for the duration of any evening.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft. Slightly peppery aroma with some rye and citrusy hops. Muddy brown color with an off-white head. Lots of resiny hops on the taste. Lingering orange peel flavor. Hoppy for an amber.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the tap a hazy, barely translucent chestnut brown with a decent light tan head. Malty aroma has earthy, caramel and fruity hints. Pleasing flavor rolls caramel, malty, pear and earthy tones over the taste buds. Firm texture is quite fizzy and leaves a malty, earthy and slightly fruity finish. Hops bless ’Merica!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Amber-tan, medium hued body, lightly hazed with a sporadic, sudsy, off-white head.
Smell: Atop the foundation of caramel edged, toasted bread maltiness is hop scents smelling a tad woodsy, a bit spicy, with some pleasant citrus fruits notes.
Taste: Toasty malts, with a sweetness of caramel with maybe a hint of brown sugar. Faint apricot. Spicy, citrusy hops with some grapefruit showing. Medium bitterness - it doesn’t knock you over, but, it is enough to provide for a semi-dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Neither too sweet, nor too bitter, it’s a well-rounded amber ale.
