3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber coloured body with a thick, dense off-white head. Aroma of malt, vinegar, cardboard and very little else. Light-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Strong hops up front that fade almost immediately to a cardboardie and almost soapy flavour with some malt following behind and a dash of earth. Aftertaste all of a sudden reasserts the hops which are actually pretty strong and almost metallic. Overall, an interesting beer - not necessarily a fall beer in my opinion, but shows some good hops and deep flavours for the season, which isnít bad. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliverís Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$2.55 sampled at home in Washington on 07-February-2012.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Peak Organic Fall Summit Ale is a very clear amber ale with an off white head that fades to a bubbly splotch and leaves nice lacing on the glass. It smells delicious. Itís all hops, spicy and fruity. Itís kind of sweet in the nose, with notes of orange, taffy and... I donít really know! Itís a solid and bold aroma. One whiff makes my mouth water. Itís pretty light bodied and soft. It seems a touch watery, but the finish is dry. It tastes a lot like the aroma, but not sweet and a little more complex. Itís resiny and toasty. Thereís an orange peel flavor that lasts into the finish, where itís joined by juniper to fade slowly after the swallow. This just goes right down. What a great session ale it would make.

im not a hophead so the hop heavy amber style does nothing for me. if you are into that, by all means give it a shot. not bad for what it is, just not for me.

Not too bad, one of the better organic beers Iíve had. Warming caramel and biscuity flavors, a little citrus hop is barely detectable but provides a contrast. Appetizing, and a good partner to food. Copper-brown color, smallish head.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle with an expiration date of April 2012. The pour is attractive with a well-carbonated, thin-headed, and medium amber look. Super floral hoppy aroma! It is so powerful I thought I was standing by a flower garden. While it is nice to be blown away by hops, I cannot get a whole lot of anything else over the flower garden. Maybe a faint breadiness. Light to medium body. The taste is full of hops and a little bit of citrus but nothing that makes me think of autumn. This should be classified as a Double (or Triple) IPA rather than an Amber Ale. I like my autumns to be subtle and this is extremely hopped up.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Clear red pour with almost no head. Mild caramel and malt aroma. Dry and semi-sweet flavor at the front that disappears quickly and leaves a bitter flavor of pretty much nothing on your palate.
