Opaque dark brown. Nice hoppy smell and taste. Caramel and candy bar tasting. In my opinion this is a good winter ale. First beer from this brewery, and not a bad start at all.

This american amber wonít excite hop-heads, but I find the malty sweetness to be delicious. Itís a medium gold color with a modest head of foam. The nose doesnít have much complexity and the taste is rather straight forward (with the malts shining). Great session beer.

Dark amber, malt aroma with some fruits. Bland but ok. Grew on me as I drank it. Sweetness was nice but body was a listless. Like the profile and the malt backbone.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber orange color topped by a large creamy beige head. Toasted malt aroma, hints of caramel and yeast. Tangy bittersweet malt upfront. Nice peppery hops come after initial palate. Notes of brown sugar and vanilla. Finish is dry and bitter.

Pours a cloudy brownish amber with a medium beige lasting head, some light lacing. Aroma of toasted caramel malt, barley, light fruity notes. Taste of toasted caramel malt, yeast, light fruity with some mild earthy hops. Palate isa medium body, slightly sticky mouth feel, mild carbonation. Finish is sweet toasted caramel malt, yeast with some mild earthy hops bitterness for balance with a bit of caramel nutty aftertaste. Overall a good enjoyable brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to RamyG4. Pours a dark, somewhat hazy amber color with a biege head of foam that starts at about one finger width, and dissipates down to just a thin layer. The aroma is malt forward with some woody, slightly nutty aromas wafting from the glass. The taste has some mild bitterness, a dull sweetness on the backend, and a woody taste sticks to the lips. Very light on the palate. Decent mouthfeel.

Bottle in Bucks County, PA. Amber body with big head. Nose is caramel and toffee but also hoppy. Taste is also malty, and sweet, and caramel but hops well represented too. Nice balance in there. Plenty good.

Pours a cloudy brown caramel color. Aroma of dark grain and malt. Taste is chocolate in the beginning followed by a soft sweetness surrounded by a slightly sour bitterness of the hops. The finish is clean and dry.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very boring amber ale, clearish amber pour, medium off white head. Light in flavors and aroma. Just some minor notes of caramel, bread, and grass. Not a great amber ale.
