2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was shipped up to me by Acknud (thanks!).
It pours a light tan color with nice head formation which is very durable for a non-secondary fermented beer. Aroma is light caramel balanced with hops. I could tell from this preview that this wasn’t going to be a hop-fest, but might be nicely balanced (between malt and hop), like McTarnahan’s Amber. Flavor was fairly balanced. However, flavor was a bit watery with some cerealness. This beer was rather drinkable and uncomplicated, but not immensely commendable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle consumed at fridge temp. Pours a golden yellow with a hint of red. Small white head w/ minimal lace. Thin watery mouthfeel. Minimal taste of citrus and hops, but not much else. I’m not getting the flavors some of the other raters are getting. A rather bland brew.

Very nice amber brewed here in the great Ky. Nice dark caramel color. Long lasting off white head. Nice balance between hops and malt. Nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated 1/8/06: All around solid ale. Amber in color with a decent head. The flavor is much better than I anticipated so I was quite pleased. Standard flavor for an english style ale. The taste is good and the price is right unfortunately it is hard to find in this area. I will pick more up if I ever run across it again.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - medium amber clear pour with a compact white head that quickly fell to skim the surface, good carbonation. Very mild earthy hop nose, almost non-existent. Flavor is similarly light with indistinct malt and light earthy hop flavor..watery and soft. Nothing horrible but nothing about this beer stands out as above average.

Thanks to footballguy TD32 for this local brew of his...
The pour is a medium/dark amber that forms a decent head, but it fades quickly. Smell is pretty average, nothing to make me saw, "WHAT THE ####!". Taste is decent, light malts mostly. The rest of the brew is slightly above average. I wouldn’t seek it out, but a wouldn’t turn it down for cheap.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light-hazed, pale amber with a short-lived head. Doughy, lemony yeasts give way to some sweeter citrus aromas. The same scene is played out in the flavor with some bready sourdough leading into a fruity, mildly bitter finish of hopcit. Crisp. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This very English brown ale is surprisingly drinkable. It presents a nice, but quickly disappearing, head and a mellow brown color. The aroma has faint hints of hoppy floralness. But the real pleasure is drinking it. It has all the good flavor of an Irish red and full-bodied-ness of an English amber.
