2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I really wanted to like this more than I did, the only thing holding me back from rating it higher was the beer itself. It has a cool label design and comes in a cool stubby bottle ala Red Stripe. That’s really where the good stuff ends, not much worth reporting otherwise. Just pretty mediocre, I would like it better if it was free. I would drink it again, I just wouldn’t pay for it again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a slightly hazy copper color with a medium khaki-colored head with some retention. The aroma is a blend of caramel, toasted, and slightly smoked malts with very little earthy hop characteristic; the taste is mildly sour, slightly umami, and a touch bitter, which isn’t terribly pleasant or inviting. The aftertaste is toasted malts that have been toasted a bit too long to be appealing anymore, and the rest of the palate reveals an average carbonation, slick texture, and a medium-light body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice amber with soft white head. Aromas are very sweet. Honey, corn syrup, and fresh grains. Sweet and refreshing drink. I like this more than the score indicates.

Pour is a murky brown with a small white head. Aroma is a decent caramel malt with some sweetness. Flavor is some chewy caramel malt with some chocolate in the back round. As far as amber ales go this is not a bad version. Decent malt profile and not a watery mess at all.

Faint caramel, grains and sweet brown sugar, with light citrus hop bitterness. Slightly metallic with a lemony finish. It?s light and easy to drink.

On tap at North Peak. Pour amber with an off white head. Taste and aroma of malt with a light hoppyness. An OK amber.

Nice amber color. I like how light it is. Very subtle flavor. Malty, smooth, and well-balanced.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark amber, beige rim head, dots of lace. Slightly toasted malt is the backbone of this brew. Light bittering on the swallow alters things a little, but, mostly a "regular" Ale.

Clear amber light brown color medium off-white head. Nose is almost exclusively brown sugar. Medium to light body, sweet without much hop bitterness, quick finish. Very basic.

St. Augustine, Fl - Broudy’s Liquors, 12 oz stubby bottle. Pours a lifeless medium copper, no head. Aroma has some mealy vegetable accents, a hint of molasses. flavor is muddled with some overripe vegetables, some molasses, just a hint of chocolate. Amber ale? Far from it. Oily mouuthfeel. Did not finish this one.
