1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance: pours with a 1" off white sudsy heads that recedes quickly. Faint lacing only. Color is a slightly cloudy amber with small amount of carbonation streaming.
Aroma: sweet barley malt syrup, toasted wheat bread, some earthy hop spice as well.
Mouthfeel: light and watery with a dry finish.
Flavor: mild flavor, I expected more in the taste based on the aroma. Bland is the best way I can describe the flavor. There is not much of the expected caramel sweetness from an amber ale. Hard to find something good to say about this one.

Not a bad average drinker. Pours brown with a small head. Taste of tempered malt with a clean hop finish. Nothing outstanding but ok for a thirst.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves little lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and nutty with some mild citrus. Taste is caramel malty sweet with some nuttiness and a light citrus hop bitterness. Flavors are nicely balanced and the mouthfeel is quite good. I really enjoyed sampling this brew and found it to be the best of their 12 bottle sampler.
