Misc.: Born on Feb. 13, 2015
Poured a copper, caramel, clear color with two fingers of khaki tan, frothy head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average lacing on the sides. Average retention. (Sight - 3.50)
Smelled caramel, Munich, nuts, light roasty malts, buttery malts, faint hazelnut or maybe even maple syrup? More Oktoberfest than anything else. (Smell - 3.50)
Tasted a little more zip than the nose. Got German Munich malts, roasty malts, buttery malts, caramel, nuts and light hazelnut. (Taste - 3.63)
Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Roasty finish. (Feel - 3.75)
I may have slightly overrated this, but it wasn’t horrible. Not bad. (Overall - 3.63)

Ambrée. Nez de dattes et de caramel. Au goût: caramel, herbe. Une amertume moyenne fin de bouche. Bien, rien de mémorable, cependant.

12 oz bottle served in tulip. Golden amber color. Soft thin off white head doesn’t last long. Some lacing. Weak malty aroma, no significant notes. Taste is very lightly sweet with a touch of bitterness. Average carbonation. Light bodied with a thin texture. Abrupt finish. Not bad but nothing special.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear dark amber, two finger off white head, decent lacing with some retention. Aroma of bread and grass. Taste is medium sweet only a touch of bitterness. Light bodied, lively carbonation, metallic like mouth feel. Finishes dry. Tasting notes of bread, herbs, toffee, pear and grass. It’s OK, but nothing to write home about.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma is mix of malt, yeasty dough and resin. Appearance is clear medium brown (think root beer) with good sparkling and nice inch-thick foamy off white head with decent retention and good lacing. Taste is more sweet than bitter but a mix. Not terribly complex. Palate is light to medium bodied with average carbonation and moderate finish, mildly bitter. Overall, interesting smelling and above average appearance for a highly drinkable but fairly average tasting/mouth feel beer.
