2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This amber ale pours a light orange color from a 12oz bottle. Medium to small sized white foamy head. Aroma is slightly malty, caramel, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied amber ale. Malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly bitter. Kind of a typical amber ale, it is kind of sweet, mild tasting and a touch watery. Besides that… Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Orange amber beer with white head. The aroma was a sweet odor of malt. Sour at first to the tongue but finishes with a nice malt finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-ush amber, clear body.. THe head was a light foamy thing that disipated quickly. The aroma definiatly has the carmalized malt present, there is also a sweet fuity hint there. The flavor is pretty heavy, somewhat syrupy. The marmalized malrs are not as present in the flavor as in the aroma. This beer has a lot of character, and a clean finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shiny auburn colour with a solid off-white head. The nose is slightly citrusy with a little fruit and a hint of hops to come. The hops don’t follow into the body, instead, the body is fairly sweet with a candyish slightly phenolic character. Not enough bitterness to be redeemed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber with a white head. Sweet aromas of biscuity malts and some fruitiness. Tastes pretty sweet, like a candy bar-vanilla, caramel and butterscotch. There is some hop flavor for balance, but the sweetness is what you remember.

Clear caramel with no lasting head. Strong caramel aroma with notes of candy apples and butterscotch. Pleasant caramel flavour but not as strong as aroma suggests. Citrusy hops, green apple, low bitterness, medium sweetness. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, lasting caramel flavour.

Orang color with a small but lasting head. soft aroma of caramel. Flavor is mild and mostly sweet although you can descern some hop at the very end. Nothing exception to brag about, but a decent beer and inexpensive.

(Knoxville Brewers’ Jam). Pours yellow-orange with a soapy head. The aroma is caramelized malts and a little bit of brown sugar. The flavor is burnt caramel and just a bit of grapefruit with some bland hops in the finish.
