4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange-amber in color. Fairly sweet and creamy in taste, sort of reminds me of cream soda. Finishes cleanly with just a slight hint of malt left on the palate. Pretty highly drinkable, though too much of the sweetness may be distracting.

Clear light amber. Thick, sticky off white head. Minimal carbonation. Interesting mix of Munich malt toastiness, grassy hops with a kiss of citrus. Medium light body. Dry malt base. Hint of roasted caramel but a dominant toasted aspect. A strange combo of flavors, but nice and drinkable.

New penny color. Light caramel mixed with munich malt base. Subtle fruitiness and honest biterness leave a dry clean finish which make this a session beer.

Outstanding amber from an unknown brewery. Appearance is ideal for the style. Hops are just right, and fruit additions are moderate, albeit a nice touch.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Colgate Inn. Pours a deep red/amber with a small white head. Aroma of a nice framboise lambic. Flavor of light fruits, rhubarb, and a nice malt base. A decent beer. After trying this, I was shocked to see the low rating it gets...I thought it was quite good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft, 1812 amber at Harry’s, Tallahassee FL. A very nice amber, about as good as the style can be. Featured a grassy peppery hop (Britishy) with a mildly caramelized bready malt with a medium mouthfeel. Reminded me of fresh Bass Ale to a degree. Clean presentation, fresh. Good partner to food and good for sessions.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a foggy amber with a thin crème head. Nose doesn’t have much to it really. Sweet and malty. Flavor is bodied, but not a whole lot of character. Well rounded enough, but just no real kicker. Smooth feel with a bit of an almost syrup like edge to it. Nice to drink. A bit too sticky on the feel and lacking in noticeable character, but nice enough to try.

On tap. Not all that much to the aroma, some sweet/tart fruitiness, including strawberry. Flavor opens up more, definitely picks up on the strawberry notes, remains sweet, but has that tartness too, and I didn’t get anything syrupy or cloying out of it, remained a pleasant drink throughout. Pretty solid stuff.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-hmmmmm, my review will go against the grain with most of the other ratings, of course, my tastes perfer the ambers and oktoberfests. There really isn’t an aroma I could detect. I’m marking this down to the single bottle purchase and that the beer might be a little older than prefered. The beer was a solid copper color with a small head and a slight, consistant amount of carbonation that kept the head refresh the entire time. The beer had a bready taste mixed with caramel and the feel of a pub ale. Produce place 1.49

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a pretty good beer. A cloudy dark amber in the glass with a large, off-white, tight head that slowly faded. A robust malt flavor was followed by the hops which were not bitter. Good balance, nice lingering aftertaste.
