2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a light red/brown colored body that leaves a one finger white foamy head that ends up dieing within a half minute. Soft slow moving carbonation is seen rising. No lacing is seen.
The smell had some light nutty, caramel breadiness that lingers and ends up dieing to a bland nothing-ness within a minute (weird, but ok, just something I noticed).
The taste was basically the same except it maintains flavor throughout the entire beer. It leaves a dry aftertaste.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, I would say it is mostly drinkable, with nothing harsh on the tongue.
Overall, this is a decent amber that I would probably have again. Though its nothing special, probably would have it depending upon what else was served.

Boring like the brown, pale amber pour with a odd yellowish head. The nose is lightly roasted with a hint of toffee and mild citrus hops as well as a note of grass. Mild and sweet flavour with a light bitterness on the finish. Just a bland brew!

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.355l bottle @ The Duck, NYC. Blurry, deep champagne brown, small islandy off-white. Buttery, caramel. Smells kinda oldish, bitter scotch and diabetes(!?). Bah. Taste a bit better luckily. Sweet really malty. Amber malts and itís in a way like drinking a soft biscuit cake. Grows on you, but not all that to be honest. Think this is a old bottle. 21.06.2013

Bottle. Pretty boring amber ale. If you are looking for a mid priced amber this is not a terrible choice.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a medium amber color. Light caramel notes with a bit of a toasted flavor. I thought this beer only okay and found myself going for other beers in my fridge instead of this one.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Low key aroma of caramel, roasted nuts and such. Clear dark orange color, fairly still. Taste is heavy on the caramel malt and light on the hopping, and the whole beer has a peaty feel about it. Body is still on the lighter side, though not without a cola type bite. Nothing much to see here.

Oat, oak, nut, malt, and some hop. Great brown color and excellent head. Taste it oak and oat some malt. Thin body.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012
Location: Draft, 10/17/12
Aroma: Kind of a dull nose, light malts, a little nuts, some caramel
Appearance: Clear caramel-orange color, small head, medium-plus lace
Flavor: The flavor, like the nose is kind dull, it has a ight malty flavor
Palate: This beer has a fairly light body, a somewhat creamy feel, and average carbonation
Not very impressive. The nose and flavor are both fine, malty, and boring. Donít rush out to try this one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Amber pour, looks pretty filtered, moderate off-white head. Not much aroma, some caramel malts and a little toast. Taste has some light hopping, caramel malts and a little roastiness. Palate and taste were a little thin, but not overly watery. Overall, this is not a bad stepping stone from drinking macros to craft beer. It is pleasant and approachable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a nice amber color with the occasional small bubble rising up to a tight head of off white foam. The nose has light caramel and toast notes with a touch of old paper. The flavor has bit of toast, caramel apple, and slightly vegetal bitterness. Medium bodied with a crisp, dry finish. Iíve certainly had worse. This is actually pretty serviceable.
