2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour from bottle to pint glass is a clear, amber color with a fluffy off-white foam.
S: Caramel, sweet malt, and a slight bit of roasted malt. Not all that much going on in the nose.
T: This is a very sweet beer. Too sweet for my taste. The flavor is very caramelly, with a fair amount of malt flavor coming through as well. Little to no hops, unfortunately, as this beer could really use it.
M: The beer doesn’t feel too terrible on the tongue. A light-medium body and moderate carbonation.
D: The beer itself is not terrible. It is a bit too sweet for me, but other than that, it’s not awful. The flavors that are there aren’t bad, it’s just not necessarily my cup of tea.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the downtown brewpub. Light medium malt aroma. Reddish amber color with a creamy off-white head. It laced a bit. Medium body; moderate carbonation. Sweet dark fruits, but not too dark, and some carame/toffee malt. Not much bitter. Arguably a very flavorful amber. Finish is not quite dry, and again, not much bitter.
