On tap at the brewery. I have numbers but few notes. This was a pretty solid amber ale, with cerealy, fruity malts dominating the palate. Caramely. Soft body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kuhnhenn Anneliese Amber
64 oz growler
Moderate pour in an English pint
Unknown brewing (recent?), enjoyed 2 days after the growler pour, 04/07
Poured a clear reddish amber with an average somewhat diminishing off white head.
Smelt of moderate caramel, citrus, light dough.
Taste was upfront moderate caramel and citrus hops followed by a moderate to strong bitter toasted malt and garden greens hops on an average finish.
Palate was light to medium bodied, fizzy, slightly oily and lightly astringent.
Overall, a very satisfying amber with a good emphasis on taste, but nothing makes it stand out.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ The Brew Kettle: Copper pour lasting white head. Subtle amounts of crystal and caramel malts which should’ve been more. IBU’s are low but the hops seem to take over and leave a citrus dryness. Really too thin and nothing really going on here I slammed this fast just so I could get something else, not bad but boring and could’ve been more exciting..

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at brewery. Nice copper color with thin off white head. The aroma is tart grapefruit and a hint of sweet malt. Nice hop bite of what seems like grapefruit hop type flavor and bitterness. The malts take a back seat behind the tall hop flavor profile. Nice tasty beer for the hop head or aspiring hop head.

Draft... Mostly clear orange/amber ale with a small, wispy, white head. Perfumey nose. Well-balanced, tangy, fruity flavor with hints of grain and hop bitterness. Not at all sweet. Light-bodied and thin with lively carbonation. Crisp, lightly tangy, dry finish.
