2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very small sized white head with fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly diminished.The body was carbonated, clear and the hue was amber.This beer left no lacing on the sides of my glass.The nose was hoppy and malty and the flavor was bitter tasting and it left a lingering aftertaste.The mouthfeel was smooth, thin and light bodied.This was not a bad beer, but it wasn't a great beer either.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This brew poured a small head of quickly disappearing medium sized whitte bubbles that left very little lacing and a cloudy amber brown colored body behind. The mild malyt aroma is barely noticeable. Its initial mouthfeel is smooth with a slight hop flavor along with some malt and caramel notes. It is a decent enough beer for drinking if offerred, but does not stack up to the so many other fine brews out there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber. A little caramel and a little citrus in the faint aroma. Similarly hopped to the lager. Woody and dry. Fizzy. This beer was trying to multi-task, and ended up a little muddled.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber hue with an orange tint. Very little head to speak of. White and quickly diminishing.
The nose is very malty with notes of milk chocolate, caramel, alcohol and orange blossom honey.
Weird, astringent, lighter fluid flavor up front. Quickly changes course with a moderately malty flavor. Balanced out nicely with a lightly pungent and bitter hop presence on the backside. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation.
Medium-length, slightly sweet and grassy finish.

I really didn't enjoy this a lot. It is kind of bitter and it has a strange aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
overly (overpowering) carbonated somewhat compensated by a nice color and aroma. the bloom is short but the paplate is acceptable. A drinkable beer but not exceptional.

This is a nice, mild amber. It has good taste but not the typical overpowering kick of some ambers. You could drink quite a few of these & still be in good shape.
