3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy semi-dark red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The lacing was somewhat w there in a speckled messy sort of way.
The smell had some toasted caramel malts and a light toffee backed up by a light nuttiness.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this was about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation finishes somewhat crisp yet smooth.
Overall, for the most part, this was a decent Amber/Red ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
can. pours hazy bright golden-orange with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. subtle flowery citrusy, crackery lightly toasted maltiness, fruitiness - peaches and oranges, spicy oranges, but also fairly present peppery-earthy ntoes, something woodsy-vanilla-esque if not almost a young brett, few herbal-grassy notes. moderate carbonation, light body, dry crisp grassy-peppery finish. a rare much enjoyed amber.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is mahogany amber with a quick lasting off-white head. The aroma is not very vibrant but I do pick up roasted caramel malts. The body is light to medium. The taste has a good sweet malty character with little to no bitterness at the end. It’s an amber and nothing out of this world.

Draft at Jack Rose. To break up the high abv beers that we’d been drinking, we got the Amber. The beer was standard to style, but still impressive. Refreshing, nicely balanced - not overly malted and no stale hop flavors. Light, creamy body. Quite refreshing.

Appearance has a rich amber color supporting a steady head leaving fair lace. Smell of darker caramel malt and light hop having a light astringency throughout. Taste of the rich darker malts with a mild hop balance. Mouthfeel is medium light with good carbonation.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Amber with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and grass. The flavor is similar with some very dry toffee notes, as well as some cocoa and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Drank a few pints on tap at The Red zone in Ashland and I dug em’ pretty standard amber taste but good and not cheap tasting. It was 102 degrees out so I had to switch to lighter beer after a few.

GABF. Amber pour. Caramel and toffee aromas hit up front followed by a muted citrusy hop presence. Flavor is sweet pale malts, lightly spicy hops, a hint of bready yeast creeps in.
