3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
An easy drinking amber ale, nice flavor, slightly sweet with no real bitterness or hops presence. A good session beer, but doesn’t really blow me away

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Carmelized malt nutty aroma. Not bad at all. But the aroma is the best. Taste is a bit yeasty and dirty, still dominated by the Carmelized malt but just not clean. Light palate and a bit watery. Drinkable Amber, just not a whole lot there with the watery palate and dirty yeasty finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and earthy nut notes. Taste follows, minimal yeast esters, slightly bitter finish. Decent for the style, but just a bit off.

Pour from a 12oz bottle. Darker amber brew with pale tan head. Aroma of lightly toasted malt, sour fruity hops. Taste is sweet malt up front, nutty , lightly toasted, modest sour tart fruit emerging in the finish. Toasted malt and sweet notes are consistent. Solid amber ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a snifter.
2.75 A: Mildly hazed orange amber color. Less than one finger of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left.
3.0 S: Sweet caramel and graininess. Not quite clean as there’s some breadiness in there. Light mineral component. It’s okay, but it needs more malt in there.
3.25 T: Like the nose, lots of caramel and graininess. Bready base with hints of mineral. Mild bitterness. Grassy hops. Better than the taste, but still mediocre.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and smooth.
3.25 D: It’s okay, but nothing I would pick up again.

Pours a deep copper with barely any head. Some malty aromas in the nose but faint. Flavor is filled with malty sweetness and it lingers in the aftertaste. Not bad, one of the better offerings from Palmetto.
