3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer I had was called "Amber Cream" and may have been a different beer than this, but I’ll place this review here for now. Light clear amber pour, with a very light malt aroma and somne light hops. Light malty flavors, some woody hops. Light creamy mouthfeel. Came across a bit non-descript.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was actually quite a tasty beer for an otherwise usually boring beer producer. Has some nice toasted malts and a bittersweet hoppy bite in the aftertaste which is a nice surprise. Nice caramel malt presence, with just a bit of a herbal vegetal taste in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is one of those beers that you know you won’t rate about a four, but you have to admit that you really enjoyed. This is the quintessential session beer. Attractive color, it’s a true amber, and crystal clear, with a head that could pass for nitrogen dispensed if I didn’t know better. The aroma is slight - a little malt and a little hops. The flavor is perfectly balanced. There isn’t the chewy maltiness that is present in my top-ranked ambers that pushes them close into brown ale territory, but there is this nice clean caramel malt flavor, that enough to tease and keep you interested without being enough to tire you out after a few. The hops sneak up on you. I didn’t notice them at the first few sips, but as I drank, they grew and grew to the point that there was a distinct herb grapefruit peel hoppiness standing out and complementing the clean malt nicely. A beautiful little beer that I wouldn’t mind having more of.
