3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a really good beer and underrated in my opinion. Pours a nice amber color with a small head. The aromas of malt, hops and maybe even a hint of whiskey. fFlavor is creamy and malty with a nice hop balance. Very drinkable and super smooth. Reminds me of a Sam Adams Boston Lager, but a bit smoother and less harsh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle acquired in trade with BlankBoy (thanks!). Poured a medium and see through amber color with a huge (5 finger) sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, biscuity, lightly spicy and all around earthy. Tastes of caramel, citrus, lightly spicy, and lightly grassy. Body a tad on the thinner side.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I did find some flavour in this brew, but had to ignore the metalic undercurrent. The flavour that needs to be brought out is a malty balance. Back to the lab, boys.

341mL thanks to solidfunk. Pours deep amber with a larger, beige head. Sheen appearance and rockier retention. Soapy lacing. Nose is decently hoppy, small orange peel, but dominated by sweet rolls and heavy malt. Taste is malt forward, sweet rolls, quite bready with hints of fruit juiciness. No soap, no cheesy hops, no stale candies, no stickiness. Not so bad. Should be moved to Amber Ale. Tannic, sharper palate.
