3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Little to no head, amber body. Aroma of hops and a cinnamon/spice touch. Very nice spicy hop flavor and a dry, somewhat bitter finish. I am very impressed by this brew, and it will become a regular in my fridge for everyday drinking.

Looks nice, with a full head and a red body. Smells like a lager with a hint a sweetness, but a bit malty. A mostly uninteresting, unoriginal beer. Smooth, but tastes like nothing in particular really.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2006 On draught at the Uno near Tuttle Mall in Dublin, OH as Uno Amber. Came in an unfrosted glass which was a nice surprise. Pours a deep amber color with a medium thick light beige head. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt. On the lighter side body-wise with a malty and earthy flavor. Finish is lightly hopped and just a tiny bit metallic. A lot better than I was expecting but not something I wish I could take home or anything.

Nice aroma and fine color, decent albeit short-lived head . Perfect bitterness, probably the best non-English English Pale Ale I have had.

Not a bad ale, but quite uneventful. Copper, with nice head, decent lacing - slight hops and malts - minor sweetness - easy drinking, with a subtle yeastiness. Not bad, I guess.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber color with a foamy white head. Aroma has a hint of malt and hops. Flavor is smooth, malty with a touch of sweetness and a hint of hoppy bitterness at the finish. Palate is a little thin. Nothing great, but not bad either.

It went down well and had the same grain essence as fresh bread. It had a semi-sweet flavor and finished a little bitter. A good ale.

Only slightly heavier than their Boston lager this ale is drinkable and easier to find than most ales.

Amber to copper gives you a beautiful glass of a fruity ale with a dark-yellowish top. Plums, raisins in the aroma and a sweet toffee in the palate, that ends with a certain bitterness.
