Dark amber pour with a gigantic off white head. Like a big storm cloud brewing in my glass. Smells of sweet toffee and honey. Light bodied with a chewy texture on the palate. Finishes with a slightly malty tang. Good flavor and very drinkable. A decent session amber.

This beer pours an amberish red color with a frothy slightly off white head with good lacing. From aesthetics alone I was pretty damn pleased with this beer. The aroma is pretty prominent for something i had low hopes for. Caramel and hops are in there with a chocolate or molasses undertone. The flavor is very dessert like and almost leads me to think this would be a nice dessert beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Received single 12-oz bottle via trade with 5000. Pours a semi-clear copper amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a film top and decent off-white ring. Aroma of caramel malt, flowery hops, some white pepper, apples and a touch of brown sugar. Taste is slightly biscuit caramel malt, some dry hop character with toasted bread, and a touch of citrus zest. Finish is semi-dry a little roasted nuts and chocolate aftertaste that even has a lingering dark iced tea finish. An interesting amber ale.

baked bread aroma, also ripe orange. rich amber color with orange tint. respectable head fell to a whisper that hung around a while. creamy side to its depth of roasted character. there’s a metallic edge that hurts it overall but only a bit.
