3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew pours a clear amber-brown color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes to an outer ring quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and mild hops. Light body with a sweet caramel malt character and touches of floral hops and fruit. The finish is sweet and malty and leaves a lightly hopped aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Draft @ The Works Pizzeria in Loveland, Ohio.. Brown, copper color, minimal head. Toasty, smoked aroma with a nice malty/bitter balance. Nice, crisp texture but not much else to say about this beer.

Nice example of an amber ale. Roast malt on the nose with a touch of citrus hop. Slightly sweet on the front with a nice dry hop finish on the back. The quality of this beer has been slowly on the rise over the last year and I expect it to continue to improve.

Clear amber brown with a small white head. Fruity hops, fruit juice, light floral notes and some sweet malts in the aroma. Flavor has a more malt forward presence with the molasses malts, then comes the fruity and lightly floral hops. Almost came off as a very thin barley wine because of itís molasses malt notes and syrupy alcohol. A pretty decent amber.

Amber color with a short lived white head. Light grain in the nose with some citrus hops. Sharp grapefruit hoppiness with some grass in the finish. Bready malts, but for an amber I found this a really hoppy beer.

12oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with golden edges and white head. Aromas of toasted malts, light citrus, caramel, and some grain. Flavors of toasted malts, watered down hops with a bit of a metallic note. Some caramel mixed in. Average amber at best.

Twelve ounce bottle at GABP. Decent pour with tan head. Too choppy for me. Just alright taste and palate. Thumbs down unfortunately. I wanted to like it.

Yeah, nothing I will drink again any time soon. Notes of caramel, toasted malts, and hops. Nothing special.
