3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Red Cent Amber Ale. Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a very deep red color with a lasting light tan head. The nose is light with slight notes of caramel and a little earth. The flavor is exactly as an amber should be in my mind. Malt forward with a nice and light balancing bitterness. A nice mix of baked bread, caramel, slight malt and a touch of earthy hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a short finish. I am sure this one is going to be bashed for not being over the top or under hopped. Whatever, itís a solid amber ale and the perfect session brew for those who arenít into hops or are tired of the hop overload.

This beer is everything that is wrong with the micro/craft brew scene. They are just phoning in a microbrew with absolutely no taste. It taste like liquid wood shavings in a bottle... Avoid at all costs.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very clear medium amber color, with a strong, toasted banana nut bread aroma and silky, full-bodied mouth feel that belies this relatively light representation of a typical amber ale. The head fell away a bit too quickly poured out of a bottle, but Iíve tried it on draft and thatís not the case. The caramel malts balance the hop fullness, not fading to bitterness but a cleanliness I havenít gotten in craft beer in forever. Despite a 5.5%abv this is truly a refreshing and sessionable ale that has become my go to beer from the Baltimore area in the past month. Canít wait to try the others!

Nice íamberí color with a small bit of lacing. Aroma was faint and had a sweetness to it. Taste was suprisingly hoppy with a medium body. Average, not swill.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A rather light tasting Amber Ale. I tried it from a bottle and found it to be rather mild tasting with not much head or lace. I would consider this to be a summery beer because of the mild taste. As amber ales go, this was short on maltiness or hoppiness. It might improve "on tap".

Bottle from Ye Olde Spirit shop. Overall enjoyable Amber with medium to full body, strong malt tones that are a little sweet. On the heavier side for the style. Good beer.
