2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish brown color with a small off-white head that has fair retention. The aroma is sweet grains, caramel and a bit of bubble gum. The flavor is front-loaded with caramel followed by piney hops and a bit more bubble gum. The palate was just a bit thinner than I preferred and the carbonation was lively. Finished short and dry. Overall: Better than BMC, but that is scant praise.

Smooth easy drinking bottle of extremely boring amber ale. Not awful but nothing to remember her bay.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Standard brown in every way from appearance to aroma and taste, right down to a slightly cloying caramel finish. It exists somewhere between craft and commodity beer.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this beer at a edding for my friends and thought it was nice for an amber ale with this amount of alcohol. Good malty flavor that had a nice body.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle brewed in Utica, N.Y. with an expiration date of Apr 04 2010. It pours a relatively clear looking chestnut brown with a good three-quarters inch of foamy, long lasting head. Malts head up the aroma with a sweetness and slight hoppiness on the back end. Sweet caramel malts start out the taste with a thinly hopped ending and breadiness. I would have it again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pretty nice amber. A bit of sticky harsh malts but drinks well. Light brownish redish amber color. Pours with a little lace of head. Overall a nice brew but nothing special. A good deal at Costco.
