3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz Bottle. It poured a clear medium amber with an average (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that offered up great retention, finally reducing to a long lasting thin cap and had excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was extremely mild of a light grain malt, mild herbal hops and a light earthy yeast with notes of caramel, a bit of spice and a light fruity ester.
The taste was very different from the aroma. It was bold, very malty and a tad sweet with a big note of caramel that lasted throughout, with the finish having a mild fruitiness and a small bite of spiciness towards the end. The flavor hung around for a decent amount of time proceeding the swallow, with a nice sweet malty taste that was left to linger on the taste buds for a while longer.
Mouthfeel was just under medium in body with a creamy yet mildly dry texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall I was rather taken by surprise with this very impressive organic Amber Ale. It possessed a ton of flavor and an awesome drinkability. This is most likely is the best organic beer I have tasted to date...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Single bottle, Total Wine. Pours a clear dark amber with a small, tinny head. Aroma of yeast and citrus with something soapy underneath. Unfortunately carries over into the flavor - tastes like a decent enough amber ale otherwise, but there’s a metallic, soapy element in there that’s pretty unpleasant.

Not a bad beer. It really comes off more as a mediocre Trippel than an amber ale. High carbonation, and goes down easy. I’d drink it again, but won’t seek it out.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to chilled shaker glass at Fish Bones in Orlando. Dark amber pour with a thin white head. Standard amber ale aroma, a little bit of hops and a little bit of sweet malt. Taste is somewhat Belgian fruity but also partially metallic. Sweet finish. Meh.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a fairly small head to it. Fairly malty in both taste and smell. Fairly average as a beer goes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark murky amber from the bottle with thin white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of pale malts, caramel, and slight english hops. Taste follows suit with a slight bitter finish. Decent beer, good for organic.
