3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Approximately 4 oz sample at the brewpub in Hays, Kansas. Pour is copper golden, clear with more of a head than the other samples. Nice lacing left behind as the glass goes down. Aroma is pleasant cooking sweet caramel, a well rounded nuttiness and a mild hoppiness. Taste is
the nose (sweet caramel, nuttiness and hops), combining the flavors in a really fresh and vibrant way. The malt in the flavor is more of the
nuttiness of the malt versus the caramel, which I prefer. The hops kick in at the back, and dry the beer our nicely. Palate is light to
medium bodied, nice amount of carbonation with the mineral finish. Great amber.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler @ brewpub. Clear brown color with a slightly sticky lacing. Aroma is thick caramel malts with just a bit of spiky hops coming through. Taste is of light hoppiness (earthy) and a light caramel flavor underneath that. Easy drinking beer, not weak at all though. Very clean and fun.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A really decent amber ale. A bit on the lighter side, but very true to style and a very nice session beer. Gentle fruit aromas meld very nicely with a semi sweet caramel maltiness. Malty and chewy on the palate, but finishes very clean with just a hint of lingering bitterness. Nice

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the better in the lineup thus far. Very true amber color, white head. Faint plum aroma...surprising. Slight roast and nut in the flavor while also having a medium caramel note in there. Dies in the finish. For an amber, I’m happy.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2010 Growler courtesy of a traveling beer club member. This brew is a clear brownish-amber color with a medium thin light beige head that recedes quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and mild hops. Light body with a sweet malty flavor with notes of caramel and hops in the background. The finish is malty with a short sweet aftertaste. Slightly above average Amber overall.

On tap @ Liquid Bread. Carmelized, burnt orange appearance. Quite malty nose with a noted toastiness and nuttiness. Big malty amber beer again that’s fairly toasty and a bit nutty. Not too shabby.
