4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 Bottle. Poured a rich copper in color with a very small (less than 1 finger) white foamy head and had poor lacing.
The aroma was of roasted bread malts, a grassy hop and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, orange and a bit of honey.
It tasted sweet and malty with a note of caramel in the beginning then progressed into a bitter-sweet-malty flavor with a nice hint of citrus and a touch of honey at the end allowing the flavor to last a decent amount of time after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and dry in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall a brew with a nice smooth hoppy aftertaste. One to put on the my favorites list.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle that I got locally, either at Dutch’s or the Party Source. I’m not sure how I never had one before now. Anyway, it pours a clear amber with a small off-white head that leaves a half ring and a small island of film. Notes of tea, toasted and amber malts, brown sugar, leafy and floral hops. Light-bodied, with moderate cabronation and a smooth, tea-like mouthfeel. I guess I’ve never made it a point to try it because it’s an amber ale, but it’s a damn good example of the style, as expected.
