Well carbonation yields to a greasy residing head. The malty aroma brings a well laced malt / caramel taste. A very drinkable beer with a slight bitterness and floral note at the end. Overall good, but not excelente.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Bottle] Pours a deep amber color with a quickly receding head. Sweet and malty aroma includes some earth and mild grassy hops. Tastes like sweet bread, biscuits and grapefruit. Not much complexity here. Overcarbonated and the body could have been better. A pretty easy drinker.

I thought this was a very nice amber ale. It had a nice balance of malt and hops and was not too alcoholic like a big red beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dried leaves and caramel nose. Clear tea colored, medium head. Dried leaves and malt initially, slightly sweet nougat at midpalate, finishes with bitter walnut skin. Very fall-like. Nicely crafted. Much better than I expected.
