3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is rich sweet malts, caramel, fig, and slight hickory. Taste is a fairly thick chewy chocolate, caramel and molasses. Appearance a clear dark amber with a medium fluffy head that retains very well.

The aroma teases but the body doesn’t quite deliver. Still a good example of an amber ale, currently one of the best in Seattle.

Sweet and malty. Very light on the juniper. The finish is a little metallic but still smooth. Pretty good overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler from Albertsons. Seeing a wide variety of scores here, and I’ll go with the downside, average at best, with a flat metallic finish. Might be closer to a brown ale than an amber, but that wouldn’t improve any scores....

Yech. This had a bitter and absolutely unappealing taste. Heavy malts and syrup with some burnt notes and berries.

Complex, delicious, no off flavors at all. Good mouthfeel, I kept taking extra ’tastes’ because it was soo good. One of my favorites!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Odin Tap Room. Dark amber colored beer with off-white foam. Lots of caramel malt and herbal qualities. A touch of roast, dark cocoa, and toasted bread. Some leafy floral and earthy hop character as well. Light bitterness to the flavor. Sort of a cereal sweetness as it sits for a bit.

Amber in color. Malty in taste with very subtle juniper berry flavor. Great smell to the beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle from a 6 pack. The aroma on this is very nice. Sweet, caramel, roasted maltiness with a little fruity acidity. A little nutty, too. Transparent dark amber body with a tan-yellow head present. Starts with a rather toasted and roasted malt character. Light underlying cereal, too. I get a little spice character from the juniper berries, but really not much. Finishes with a more toasted cereal (cheerios) maltiness. This is pretty tasty.
