2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice session beer, pouring a hazy amber color with a lazy white head. The aroma is mainly caramel malt with orange and floral hops. It’s a creamy caramel drink with a flavor of orange hops and a smattering of herbal bitterness in the finish. Okay.

A good looking amber ale with a white heade. Not great. but pleasant mix of sweet malt, floral hops, and some bitter hops. Low enough alcohol to make it a good session beer, and to provide a good explanation for the lack of in-your-face intensity and complexity.

Bottle. Pours copper color with a small white head. Mild aroma without much recognizable character, flavor is sweet, caramelly with a bit of hop in the finish. Medium body and little carbonation. So-so ale, better than the macros - but not by much.

Clear amber color with a big head and lots of lacing. Aroma is caramel and wet sponge. Taste is a congealed malty mess. Way too sweet and sticky.

Deep amber w/ a big white head. Med. bodied. A little overly spicy. Very estery. Not much caramel but a fair amount maltiness. A fair amount of diacetyl. Very little hops in th finish. Fairly typical of the style.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber to reddish body with a medium white head, fast disappearing. Some malts in the aroma, weak and bland. Thin flavor and a weak flavor of hops. Far too thin.
