I do not like the aroma on this beer, there is just something about it. Color is a standard ale. Decent taste. Not a fan.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Pours amber (as expected); big, white, rocky head quickly dissipates to a thin covering. Aroma quite weak; predominantly bready malt; sweet toast. Flavor bears significant resemblance to Newcastle Brown; malt and caramel and buttery; finish surprisingly dry. Mediocre beer.

Stubby bottle poured a clear amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and a hint of fuittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of camel and earthiness with a crisp dry lingering earthy finish.

One of the better amber ales i’ve had to my recollection. There are tons of them on the market but this one stands out. If you’re in the market for a good amber this is one that won’t dissapoint.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub, Traverse City. Amber body, hazy, with a medium, dense, pillowy off-white head. Light caramely, sweet nose with residual sugars. Light, fruity body, reminding me a tad of a watered-down Kool-Aid packet (tropical fruit juice, perhaps), also with toasted cereals and light grassy hops; light bitter finish. OK, soft, quaffable.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Nice head and appearance, slightly bitter aftertaste. Leaves me wanting more in terms of aroma

Bottle: pours amber with a light tan head. Sweet, malty aroma, maybe some fruit in there. It’s flavor is super sweet, but just a touch of bitter in the back if my mouth. It’s tasty, but a bit on the sweet side for me.

12 oz. bottle. A "malt bomb" as expected. Clear amber color with average head. Lots of body for 5%! Sweet malt aroma and taste, but cut with hop bitterness in the aftertaste. I intend to buy this again.
