Bottle. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew that met my expectations.

She pours semi-hazy amber with a lively tight white foam that leaves a nice lace on the glass. The aroma comes through with a nice caramel-biscuit malt with an interesting hop character that presents in the form of tropical fruit, grass, and fresh cut hay. Not overly complex or special, but nice for what it is. The flavor comes through with a juicy fruit hop character that is nicely complemented by caramel and toffee notes as well as some spicy orchid. The flavor finishes off with a resinous hop lingering. The palate is full for the style with a supple smooth mouthfeel, low to medium effervescence, and a sticky resinous finish. Perhaps its the 200 degree weather and 200% humidity, but I quite enjoyed this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml. Hazy copper with a small, creamy head. Aroma is a well-blended melange of orange-grapefruit, pine resin and caramel. Light-medium body is creamy at first but becomes almost explosive. Lightly tingly, with a nice balance between sweet and dry. Flavor is hoppier than the aroma, with orange blossom, resin, soap, and caramel on the front. Long finish of bitter dried wood and pecan shells.

Orange, big white head. Sweetish aroma at first - brown sugar, some caramel. Some tat notes, as well. Flavor is - my notes say amber, so, y;know, whatever that means. Nice mix of malty sweet and a crisp, slightly bitter finish. Bomber, Union Jacks.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Large bottle. Not very impressive. Predominant taste is water with very slight malt and almost no hops. In other words a very bland amber with almost no character.
