3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium brown with a yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy off white head that diminished to a thin layer of residue and lasted throughout creating some really good spotty sticky lacing.
The aroma was of mild bread and grain malts, an herbal hop and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of toffee and caramel.
The taste was lightly sweet and malty with just a mild hint of toffee at first and then got a little hop bite with a nice caramel note at the end. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time with a slight hoppiness left at the finish.
Mouthfeel was just a bit above light in body with the texture being a bit watery and a tad dry with a lively carbonation.
Overall a nice tasty Amber ale with a nice mild hoppiness to it. But it seems that everything I try from this brewer is quite tasty.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bot. Smells like a big malty brew. Looks like a yuengy. Big malty taste. Middle goes a little medicinal. Some carbonation. Slightly cooler than room temperature. A little fruit in there sometimes, alky soaked fruit, just a little. Gets a little difficult near the end. Yes, malt effects are prevalent throughout the session. Not sure if any hops are detected or not.

Pours a nice copper color, with a medium, bubbly, off white head. The aroma is toffee, nuts, raisins, and some light cardamon. Sweet flavor throughout.. Medium body, a little crisp and harsh. This is a good, malty amber ale.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
coppery and a little hazy with a quick white head. nose is a fairly generic amber ale with a little bit of sweetness and a touch of oak. Flavor profile is similar but a little sweeter and with tones of breadand just a little bit of hop bitterness. Backside has almost a pasta feel to it. a little weird but unremarkable

Bottle... Pours clear and dirty-orange with a small, white head. Toffee and bready notes, along with a port/golden raisin-like ester are the aromatic highlights. Light-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is medium-roast malty and very well-balanced. Crisp, clean, refreshing finish. Well done. Good amber ale. Bottle courtesy of Tinkerbell!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Outstanding Amber / American pale ale. I see it’s listed as an amber, but it to me, it definitely drank like an APA. I enjoyed two pints of this beaut on draft at Sugar Creek in Nags Head. The beer poured a bright and clean copper color with an ample off-white head. The head laced nicely around the inside of the glass. The nose was very inviting with plentiful notes of fresh, spicy and bold hops. The flavors followed suit, with a ton of full and bold happiness. There was also plenty of bready and biscuit flavored malts. The finish was smooth and slightly creamy with more fruity and spicy hops. Really nice ale!
