3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large sample pour of properly colored Amber with a thin off white head. Nose is caramel malts with faint citrus, a little zest. Caramel flavors, lighter hop notes of citrus and mild zest again, mostly sweeter malt notes. Not a favorite

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can: Aroma had got a nice malty note to it, caramel, a bit of bread, and some really subtle grassy hops on the backend. Appearance is a reddish/ amber with a medium off white head that lingers. Taste is caramel malts upfront, lightly nutty, and some very light hop note in there as well. Palate is light and aqueous with a lightly malty, but somewhat crisp aftertaste. Overall, Good offering but nothing that will blow your socks off. Cheers!

On tap, poured into a shaker. The aromas are a dark blend of caramel and bubblegum with a lightly charred character. It pours a clear, oily red-brown color with a light tan, foamy head that reduces to a medium ring with hefty wisps along the surface and leaving a medium-light lacing on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter. The medium bodied, oily textured beer has a light buzzy carbonation with flavors of caramel, grain, and spice, as well as a burnt grain / toast character late. Caramel appears most strongly in the finish with notes of spice and light bread appearing in the aftertaste.

a malt leaning Amber ale a little on the boring side, but significantly better than the lager or IPA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap: Amber body with a red-ish tint. Hard to tell exactly, since it was served in a translucent goddamn plastic cup. Foamy white head. Aroma of light caramel & Munich malt sweetness, hints of citrus, figs, & a little bit of piny hoppage. More finishing grain & toasted maltiness. Taste is more malty, more bready, more caramel-y, while still having that fig-like dark fruitiness behind it. Hops take a backseat. Light pine only. Malty finish, sweet toffee & toasted breadiness. Thin, watery body. Somewhat forgettable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Absolutely splendid red. Story here is malts. Deeply imbued in flavor. Not much if any hops, which I find welcome.

Soft and clean pour with one finger of soft tan head. Caramel and toasted notes in the aroma with a nice balanced malt profile. Bready notes with an herbal and earthy hop profile. Malt forward in ze mouth with an earthy quality and dextrinous notes. Medium body and unoffensive finish.
