3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Poured clear rusty amber with a light brown head that slowly dissipated to the edges. Aroma was grain, cereal and hay with a slight pine hop backbone. Flavor was similar, the grain was bit sweeter, but the same pine hop backbone was still present and grew toward the finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned. Poured medium orange with a short cap of beige head.. quite a lot of dark sediment at the bottom of the can. The aroma picked up candied caramel and an odd, sour medium-skinned fruit (& pineapple).. kinda smelled like it was falling apart. The flavor had sweet caramel and fruits similar to the nose with tart fruit skins surrounding.. never really came together. Light-bodied and unnecessarily tart on the palate.. sticky, ugly finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: The aroma is bready and grassy with some faint caramel. It pours a slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with some faint caramel that turns to a light fruitiness in the middle. The finish has some light grassy hops and a faint nuttiness. Light-medium bodied with lively carbonation that is a tad prickly at times. Not a huge amber ale fan, but okay and very sessionable.
