2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught. Sweet caramel and cherry aroma. Dark ruby with a thin swirly head and slow but active carbonation. Good malt depth but a touch too sweet. Caramel with chocolate and nutty notes. Palate is thin, but more than that particularly watery, as in diluting of the flavor of the beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the brewpub - a very malty amber ale, so much so that it is hard to even notice those hops trying to break through - very sweet, nutty, with touches of nutmeg and other spices (this makes things a little more interesting) - the boiled vegetable character I noticed in their IPA is even more noticeable here, and it really detracts from my enjoyment of the beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crushed with Jakebra at the brewpub. Sweet malt nose. Lots of sweetness. Definite initial hop bitterness that mellows into a very pleasant malt sweetness. One of the most appealing ambers I’ve ever had.

On tap at the brewpub on 10/14/07: Clear amber copper with a wispy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet and toasty caramel malt. Body starts about average and quite drinkable with a touch of sweet caramel malt and grapefruity hops toward a crisp, bittersweet finish. A decent amber.
