3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours more copper than amber, but it does have a good hop aroma. Flavor is not as impressive with metallic and mineral flavors dominating. Some good hop/malt balance in there but it seems like the yeast throws some wild notes into this brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is a bit of oxidation, biscuit and cereal, a slight herbal hop component, and a mild fruity sweetness. Taste is mostly cereal and herbal hops with slight caramel and low-med bitterness. Medium body with sort of a strange viscousness to it, fizzy carb, dry finish. Bitterness is a little too long and astringent considering there is not much hop flavor.

Consumed straight from the bottle, which might be at least several months old. Its not bad - perhaps bottle conditioning helps give this a longer shelf life? Easy drinking, mildly malty, a touch of bitterness and hops. Not bad at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
small frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. translucent average-density light amber body. aroma: moderate malt, caramel, light hoppy, maple syrup. if: heavy sweet. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Pesado Dulçor maltado lembra também Karo. Amargor de lúpulo surge para equilibrar no final do gole. O amargor de malte e lúpulo são balanceados e se auxiliam mutuamente, como previsto no BJCP. 30 s

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Caramel, biscuit. Very bland. Could use some hops/bitterness to balance it out and add some flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild flavored slightly sweet and fruity ale with a soft malty base and not a whole lot else to cheer about. A decent brew but very forgettable.

"in a word, boring. one of the least impressive "amber" ales i’ve ever had. i can never quite understand why a breweries flagship beer would be this when there are way better beers in their arsenal, including the ever popular pale ale..."

Eww. Bottle must have been fucked because if this is what they were going for, they should think again. Gross.

This beer is not worth drinking. I was surprised how unbalanced and super malty this beer was. Hops and bitterness are there but not there. Don’t try.
