3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear but defined rich red. Leaves a massive off white head that doesn’t want to go away. Aroma is basement scents and a smokey metal, with hints of toasty bread. Taste is a light but nice floral and bread with some hints of caramel if only slight. Leaves a slight bitterness on the back end that doesn’t over power the beer. Mouthfeel is a good medium bodied and moist feeling. Overall a delicious red ale that certainly is refreshing.

actually as far as ambers go, this is probably one of the better and well balanced versions of the style.

Poured as a taster at local bottle shop. Pours a ruddy brown. Aromas of hops and caramel. Taste is dominated by malt flavors - brown sugar, caramel, and biscuit - just a touch of hops. A little out of balance, but this would be excellent with food.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma consists of hay, caramel, and toasted malt. Taste is malt, brown sugar, caramel, and hay. Moderately sweet beer, medium bodied and medium carbonation. Solid brew.

Bottle at home. Nose was grass and citrus with a light caramel malt. Flavors were similar. The hops seemed faded out. I may have had an older bottle but I couldn’t locate a date. Overall it was decent it just seemed...boring. Not sure. Gonna give it another try in the future and re-rate.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice ruddy looking amber to brown color. There’s a nice looking one finger white foamy head that dies within less than a minute.
There’s not much lacing at all.
The smell had a nice toasted caramel malts to it and shows a decent bitter citrus hoppiness in the background.
The taste was mainly sweet but still had a light bitterness helping to balance it.
On the palate, this one sat at/about a medium in body. It was somewhat sessionable and had a decent carbonation running over my mouth and tongue.
Overall, I say this was a good Amber ale worthy of having again.

Very malty, too much so, with a sweetness that doesn't pair well. It's too simple, like that damned car stereo you had that didn't even have the basic bass and treble knobs...but a single tone knob instead. Yeah, it's like that.
