4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz brown bottle courtesy of my parents, who recently went to Sedona. Pours a copper-amber body with a thin film of offwhite head that dissipates quickly. Smells sweet and malty, siimilar to malt extract. Tastes toasty buttery sweet. Smooth medium mouthfeel makes this a pretty drinkable ale. Not the best beer in theworld, but a really solid sessionalbe ale that I’d get mopre often if it was local here. Good beer!

Poured a mostly clear amber color with a thin off-white head. The aroma is malty and toasty with some biscuit notes. Mild citrus as well. The flavor had a mild tartness to it over a toasty malt.

Bottle. Thanks to cbkschubert for sending me this. Poured a cloudy red amber body with thin head. Aroma is malty, light hops and a little fruity scent. Flavor was sweet malt, light citrus and fruit flavors, and a low amount of caramel. Well carbonated. Easy drinking.

I dont know how this was rated so low. This was probably one of the better ambers that I have had. A nice sweet arom of caramel and some vanilla. Amber in color. Flavor is nice sweet caramel malt balanced delicatley by some hops. This was one of the smoothest beer I have ever had believe it or not. Velvetty on the palate.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light amber color with a small wispy white head. Some sweet pale malt and just a hint of dry herb hops in the aroma. Will the nut brown had some character, this one has nothing going for it aside from the fact that it is amber sudsy stuff. Cheers.

Had on draft at the brewery/restaurant in Sedona. Not much to say about this one, however the food was GREAT! No head, amber golden color, good carbonation, and average amber ale flavor. It’s a good ’drinking’ beer when you want to pound quite a ’few’ back...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a rich amber color with a small off white head. Aroma of toffee and roasted malt. Taste was semi sweet with a caramel and citrus flavor. The malt is definately dominant in this brew however. Very smooth and easy to drink. Nothing really remarkable about it though.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear copper orange with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of sweet toasty crystal malts with a touch of earthy noble hops. Body starts slightly caramely and sweet thinning into a slightly bitter bland and watery finish with a touch of astringency. A very blah beer that could be better with just a few recipe tweaks.
