3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brew poured a quick dissolving head. There was no lacing on the sides of my glass. There was no carbonation seen rising to the top. It had a fruity aroma along with a bitter taste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out to a very attractive amber in the glass. Looks to be filtered as it is quite clear. Aroma is that of bread dough and light yeast. The taste is that of malt with a hint of fruit thrown in for good measure. Not as flavorful as Bell's Amber, but its may be more drinkable. An easy session amber if there ever was one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hazy bright orange appearance, I guess kind of like a sunset. The aroma was fresh, sweet malt. Light choclatey note in the body, oily with nice hops coming through as fruity and slightly roasty. Finishes with a medium length. A rather nice vienna, altough I think Robertus is the standout but not really comparable.

This is a very drinkable amber, good if you’re going to have quite a few sitting around and shooting the breeze. Pleasant nuttinees.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sunset amber is a perfect description of this beer’s color. Nose is decent with some malt, caramel and fruity hints. Taste gets a thumbs up from me. It finished with just a little bit of sweetness, but it’s easy to drink a few of these.

Decent hop presence, actually, but not enough malt for my taste - more of a dark colored pils than a vienna, perhaps, if it weren’t also so sweet.

caramel malt aroma, thin. I gave this one away
