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.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I thought this was a pretty decent brew.Poured a golden light color with a small head that dissapates to a thin layer of foam letting you know its still well carbonated.English grain smell with a clean and fresh water.Nice light malt taste,some yeast,lightly medium body.A little citrus/lemon taste towards the end and finishes very slightly sticky but clean and makes you want to keep drinking more.Easy drinkability.I was expecting it to be average and was turned off by the low ibuís but turns out its more pale ale than expected with the 10 ibus.Now im curious about the others and may even take a road trip to the brewery.

Thanks to BeerFMAndy for this bottle. Served in a Cantillon tulip.
Pours a moderate copper color that is entirely transparent. A bit odd in how transparent it is. A small amount of white head forms after the initial pour, though there isnít too much retention. The nose brings a bit of bready caramel and not too much else. The taste is really quite plain with some mild bready character. There is some mild caramel in the background. The feel is light to medium with low carbonation. I will say that the finish is fairly smooth. Drinkability is okay. No real flaws, just nothing to get me to drink more.
