I don’t know about this one. It looks right, but something doesn’t quite taste right. A little off. Caramel flavor throughout, really dry.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle poured a deep, red-amber with an oversized off-white head. I had to wait for the head to die down a bit before sampling this amber.
Aroma: the earthy Fuggle hops work great in the flavor but not so well for my nose.
Flavor: rich and malty; lightly sweet but turning mildly bitter by the aftertaste which also has a touch of hops. Approaches 8.
Feel: very smooth; near medium body; Medium, soft carbonation.
O: a wee bit more malt and hops than your average amber. Nicely done.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sundog pours a deep rusty copper with a decent beige head that lasts a good while. The aroma is toast and caramel. The flavor is toast and caramel as well. This beer lacks complexity. It is a fairly malt forward amber that is pretty easy to drink, but it fails to make a distinctive impression. Overall the beer is average.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This ale poured a cloudy dark red colour with a minimal foamy head. To the nose there are scents of grassy hops, dough and toast. First sip was smooth with a mild shot of hops and lightly sweet malt flavour on top of brown sugar and mildly smoked caramel. Finish is a little smokey with flavours of caramel lingering.
