2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mild aroma of being in a bakery at bread-making time. It’s possible to coax a bit of head on the pour, but nothing significant. Light carbonation and a soft gold color. Taste is an easy sweetness and the finish is dry. Could easily consume a few of these.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pours deep amber, almost copper, with an off-white head. Aroma is definitely malt driven as the name would suggest, showing toffee/biscuit as well as some earthy/grassy hops. Flavor is lightly toasted and bready with some muted grass/flower notes that appear on the backend. Overall body is moderate and finishes with light bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light amber body. Fizzy white head, quickly diminishing. Sweet malts in the aroma — caramel, brown sugar, grain. Notes of grass and a hint of earthiness. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, light carbonation. The taste has hints of toasted grain, earthiness. Hops are missing in the flavor. A little lingering bitterness in the finish. Not a lot going on in this beer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Almost no aroma or flavor. Some light caramel, and a light brown color. There is practically nothing here, which means nothing to enjoy.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle- thanks John. Color is not quite an amber ale- more golden than orange. Head dissipates quickly, aroma is bready, doughy, with a faint hint of citrus hops. Nice bold start- good amount of caramel sweetness, creamy body, and then a clean, pine-hop finish. Flavors work well together, nice balance of everything. Solid beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting head. Faint nose of caramel, biscuit and a hint of citrus. Flavor is the same blend, with maybe some toasted nut. Light-medium body is smoothly carbonated and watery, so as to go down easy.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber color. Smooth drinking and a somewhat sweetly malty. Not very hoppy. Pretty easy drinking. I quite liked it. Serving: Bottle

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle from Woodmans West Madison. Pours a clear copper color with a thin offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts and caramel. The taste is toasted malts, raisin and a faint bitter hop finish. Medium bodied.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, pours a clear copper with a thin soapy white head, aroma is sweet with bread notes and sweet malt, the flavor has something a little off to it, kind of a metal sting in the finish. Nothing really stands out in this brew.
