3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Better than average for an amber ale, but still nothing that makes this stand out, except for the fact that they used some unusual hops for the style. I really liked the spiciness imparted by both the liberty and n brewer. Pretty good balance of caramel malts all the way through. Pretty smooth, and easy to drink.

Draft at the Old Corner... Poured a dark amber with a creamy off white head and light lacing on the glass. Very hoppy aroma. The taste was nicely balanced between bitter hops, and very nice sweet malts. One of the better Amber Ales I have had.

This is a great red ale. Pours deep amber/red, with aroma of toffee, malt, caramel, and slight red wine. Tastes very malty, with a finishing blast of hops, toffee, and cabernet to the posterior papillae. Awesome!

UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 This sucker was nearly glowing ruby red. Little head, but an understated and intense biscuit/caramel/meaty maltiness that was quite refreshing. Hops are not pushy. Best I've had tonight.

This is the only beer from this brewery I have had and it's pretty good. Very similar to Victory Hop Devil. So, if you've had that and like it, you'll love this one.

This is a State College, PA microbrew. Nice red color, not much head, pleasant hoppiness, and a little maltiness. The best of the beers I've tried from this microbrewery.

Pretty, deep ruby. Nose is full of sweet malts. Sweet and creamy at the start. Loses fullness at the end, but finishes with good hops and a nice drying character. A bit scotchy and smoky.

A very nice Amber. Reddish and clear. Smallish off-white head. Toasted malt aroma. Taste is more complex, sweetness balanced with roasted nuttyness. Medium bodied with nice clean malt finish. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fruity and slightly herbal (lavender?) nice bit of hops. Good maltiness and a bit of apple. Caramel-red brown clear with off-white thin lacing head. Medium carb and medium watery body. Mild sweetness and medium bitterness with fruity character. Mild nutty finish and after. Tasty and clean. Could be a bit smoother but is a nice ale.
