Draft at Fermentation. Amber pour with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of zesty citrus hops and some caramel malt backing. Solid balancing of flavor with sweet malts and more citrus and piney hops. Decent lingering hop bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a bottle,
this ale had a clear red-amber pour and gave about a one finger faint off-white bubbled head that receded to a ring and thin film, it left small spots and a few fingers of lacing on the glass as I drank,
the nose had nice citrus and floral hop aromas with toasted malt, caramel, a little bread with malt and candy sweetness,
it had flavors toasted malt with citrus hops, caramel, and pretty similar to the aroma of the beer,
the finish had a light to medium bitterness with some malt trailing afterwards,
the mouth feel was light, creamy and had average carbonation,
this was a nice amber beer drink.

Bottle. Murky orange-amber pour with a light cream head. Caramel malt and a hint of citrus. A little dusty. Not bad, but not really my thing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 2/13/15
Aroma: It has a clean, malt-forward aroma, slightly fruity, some buttery notes, nuts
Appearance: Pours a clear reddish-orange color with an off-white head and some streaky lace
Flavor: Flavor is along the same lines, a decent mix, with some slightly off flavors as well
Palate: The body light-medium, with an okay mouthfeel, and a slightly sticky finish
I thought this one was pretty unexciting. Feels okay, but also feels slightly flawed. Not bad, not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Pours two fingers of head on a clear dark straw colored body. The aroma is caramel malt and a hint of cinnamon. The initial taste is caramel and malt quickly moderated by mild citrus bitterness: a well balanced complexity. Lively carbonation keeps it smooth and not too sweet. Very refreshing and drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Labeled as nectar ales red nectar. Pours a dark ruby with a half finger of off white head. Aroma of some light citrus but mostly heavy on the malt side, loads of caramel and toffee. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Meh, not the best. Not something I would seek out again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very dark and hazy copper almost brown. Tan head. Clean aroma of fruits and strong caramel malt. Tropical fruit hop presence but not a hoppy beer; nice for balance. Well done dark dried fruit malty ale.
