3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Toasted malts, some sweet caramel malts, and light hoping. It’s refreshing, crisp, and easy to drink. Nothing bad here, just nothing great.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very nice amber with an orange hue. Aroma is caramel and hops. Taste is malty sweet with floral hops. Not much of an aftertaste. The sweetness limits the drinkability.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (in NZ). Sweet caramel aroma. A tart bitterness on the palate, with a malt sweetness you’d expect for the style, but this is overpowering. I’m sure it is popular with the punters though.

Pours an amber color just like its name. A bit spicy with a dry finish. Taste of sweet caramel and nuts throughout, a surprisingly decent amber ale that I would drink again.

On tap. Clear amber golden with an off-white head. Light aroma of caramel. Light-bodied, a little caramel and a whiff of butter. Finishes dry with hardly any hops to be found. 070709

Draft at the Carlsbad location. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma is malty combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and straw, leading to a dry and lightly bitter finish.

Bottle thanks to Snojerk321. Pours a nice reddish bronze with a fizzy fine bubbled head that dissipates. Nose is caramel, molasses, cooked carrots. Taste is better. On the sweeter end with a bit much effervescence for the style, but the taste is good. Caramel and biscuits, pancakes and a clean finish. Pretty tasty, just the nose is a bit off. Decent.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells of light caramel and mildew.
Poured copper with a small head, that dissipated into nothing. not even a halo left behind.
Taste is bleh, a rotten caramelly lagery bite. Something tastes sour, and not in a good way. Beer isnt infected with anything other than poor craftsmanship.
just not good, but I also hate lagers, so dont take much weight in my opinion,.
