3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours amber (as one would hope) with a creamy head. Aroma is hoppy, but not overpowering. Slight caramel malt aroma detectable as well. Flavor is a mix of medium-roasted malts and a subtle balancing hoppiness. This beer has a slightly creamy texture and is a little thicker than other amber ales I’ve tried, which in my opinion is a good thing. Really not a bad beer at all.

This is a decent amber on the APA-ish side. Hops come first with a touch of royalty malt. This is fairly dry, medium bodied and rather bitter. It’s not really exceptional but well brewed and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft: pours a lovely amber copper color with a light tan head. Aromas are nice, caramel and some hops shining through. Taste is mild, but distinctive...very earthy and malty, but a nice clean finish from a decent hop presence.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12 ounce bottle from Mt. Carmel 12 pack sampler purchased at Delhi Kroger. Dark amber color, small tan head, nice firm nose of mostly malt with enough bitterness to keep things honest, good malty flavor with balancing bitterness that’s much like the aroma. This brew seems to be Mt. Carmel’s de facto flagship beer and is worthy of such an honor. Very good for style.
