Just a standard amber ale. The aftertaste though was unusual. Kind of like nuts had been ground into the beer. Perhaps I had a dirty glass?

On tap at Rooster Fish in Watkins Glen. Looked great in the pour with a clear copper body, moderate head and nice lacing. Light aroma of caramel. Flavor was slightly sweet with caramel and a touch of hops bitterness. Just average.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap, at brewpub. Pours a pale amber body with a small wispy white head. There’s some decent hoppiness to the aroma, but an underlying cooked veggie smell is a bit off-putting. Slightly sour taste up front yields a thin and watery flavor with just a little caramel malt. There’s some grassy and leafy hops as well, but there’s clearly something off here. Mouthfeel is watery and lightly fizzy . I’d be ashamed to serve this if it were my pub.

On draft at the brewpub. Quite a sweet amber ale. Cloudy and loaded with aged cascade hops giving it the benefits of hops without the would-be extreme hop bite. Sadly this was not for me though.....

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft at brewpub. Poured hazy amber in color with no head. Aroma of caramel and metal? The taste was of strong caramel, nuts, grain, and maybe a little hops in the finish. This one had no carbonation and seemed a bit thin.

(cask @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark and murky amber color. Aroma is light and sweet with a hint of hops. Flavor is very earthy with some smooth caramel malts and a mild hop finish at the end of it. Aftertaste is lightly crisp and sweet.

A good way to celebrate my 1000th rated beer is by going to this brew pub. Food was great too!
Clean dark amber colour with tan head. Malt aroma, fiant but there. and a little flowery hops is present as well. Slight wine like flavour, sweet malts, light bitter hops. Slight dry palate. Overall decent.
