3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper pour with a 1 finger, creamy, white head. Aroma is caramel, bready and fruity yeast, citrus, planty, spicy and floral hops and some light, sweet vegetal notes. Flavor is caramel, fruity yeast, planty hops, stronger vegetal notes, dishwater-like note that I usually only get from Wheat Ales, some nice spicy hops and sweet hay to the finish. Light, slick body with a medium strength, slightly sharp carbonation. It definitely has some off notes, but overall, not that bad as far as Amber Ales go.

Clear amber beer with a small head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, hay, bread and toast. Flavor is malty with notes of honey, corn, bread and some caramel. Nothing special, but quite alright.

A mediocre beer. Pours from the bottle with a thin head. I couldn’t smell it and that foretold the weak taste. Bettter than mass produced ale but that’s no endorsement.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml Bottle at the Hilton in Lexington Kentucky. Pours a clear amber with a thin head and no lacing. Almost no aroma. Light hints of malt and carmel. Thin mouthfeel and somewhat over-carbonated. Up front is mild malt sweetness and a hint of hops. Very little hop character. The malt flavors come thru in the taste but in a diluted and particularly boring way. The finish has a very slight hop bitterness but is faint and dissipates quickly. Very average undistinguished beer that has the saving grace of being unoffensive and drinkable. The beer is a C-minus. Drink only if it's a hot summer day and your only alternative is one of the macro-brew lite beers.

Sampled at esbls. Clear with just a little amber hue but not much. Ok, almost clear. I taste honey, grain, and wood. Some earth. Not as bad as feared.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle served in a lager glass.
Clear, medium amber. Has an average size head with average retention, but both the visible carbonation and the feel suggest a rather high carbonation level.
Floral, modestly hoppy aroma is marred by a metallic tone and suggests a beer that is more bitter than this one. Actually, this has a good sweet/bitter balance.
O: disappointing on counts of both aroma quality and weak flavor. A decent but not particularly attractive brew.
