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.

Bottle into shaker. Light head dissipates quickly. Translucent medium amber color. Nutty resin aroma. Malty sweet flavor with pine and doughy notes. Spritzy feel on front side with sticky sweet finish. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber orange-red and mostly clear with an off-white head that fades to a rim. No lacing. Aroma is bread, malt, caramel. Taste is semi-sweet with more bread, malt and caramel. Maybe some toffee and butterscotch. Moderate carbonation and a touch of bitterness in the finish. Straightforward but very drinkable. I like this a lot as a session beer.

Poured a beautiful reddish brown with a light had that disappeared quickly. Aroma is slightly sweet and malty. Taste has some of that same sweetness up front, nice and smooth. Pretty good.

Bottle. Smells good but mild. Hard to place the scent. Pours dark amber with a light head that lingers around the edges. Taste is also hard to place. A little bitter and almost no aftertaste. Mild carbonation. Itís okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear warm medium amber with a persistent ivory head and swirls of lace. Taste is caramel malt with a butter rum overtone. The taste moves smoothly through the palate until it is lightly countered by hops and carbonation. A nice unpretentious ale, easy drinking, good session choice. Recommended.

Poured as a 4 oz taster in Greensboro pub. Surprising dark coffee notes, malt, beautiful color, sweetness counters the coffee enough that the wife, who doesnít like coffee, likes. Went very well with the burger for lunch.
