3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This ale poured a lightly cloudy, medium amber colour with a big, foamy, off white head. Nice lacing. To the nose there are scents of grassy hops, citrus, bread and ... First sip was nice and medium bodied with flavours of nuts, caramel, toast and dough. Finish is hoppy and a little bitter with the toasted malt lingering.

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were caramel, fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and mildly bitter. An over sweet brew.

(backlog US trips, NC 2013-2015). Reminded me of a toasted/malty spéciale belge of sorts, somewhere between Palm and De Coninck, then watered down and gently hopped up (UK thin black tea) for sessionability. Metallics lurking around the corner, love the label.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Strong, deep caramel color. Not much nose, slightly bready. Medium body, mild flavor, more airy than appearance.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear Golden Amber with a half inch off white head.
Smells of light malt with a hint of toffee and caramel, I get a bit of some medium red berries and a touch of bread.
Taste is light malt and bread, then a nice nut middle and finish. Not to sweet, a very nice Amber Ale.
Its texture is that of an Ale, you can tell by the way it is.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 Bottle at random restaurant, Kissimmee. Pours a clear light amber beer with a medium sized off white head. Aroma has cookies and brown malts in there and is very light. Flavor is light bitter, light toasty and malty. Not too much going on here, just a decent session ale.

Lord, that "toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors" is dead-on. Hoppiness, though...not so much. Pretty average, like a baseline by which you can judge all other craft beer.

Like many, this beer was my gateway beer for craft beers. Biscuity flavor, dryer finish. Great beer to always have on hand.
