2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to glass. This is not so bad. Heavy malt aroma with slight paper and a little butter. Clear deep-orange with full off-white head. Malty with slight bitterness and a harsh bite at the end. Slightly oxidize taste as well.

"another lackluster effort from SC...nothing wrong with this one save for a thin feel and lack of imagination :) nutty caramel malt and touch of hops, not much more."

No nose. Banana Esther’s and malty sweetness. Close to a Scotch ale. Nice mouthfeel. But not mind blowing. Could drink a growler of it though

On tap @ Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. Amber pour with a white head. Bread, toast, and a bit of grape on the nose. Some grassy hops. Kind of bland. Flavor is a touch bitter and some sweet bread, toast, and grape. Fair amount of grass hops and a hint of earth.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A not-so-bad amber. Pours a nice orange-red color with not much was. Not much smell, slightly nutty, maybe some caramel. Taste is very creamy and nutty. Had on tap at the brewery

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draft. A light amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt combined with lighter notes of caramel and butter. The flavor is sweet with notes of butter and straw, leading to a dry buttery finish. I wonder if it is a brewing flaw or a dirty draft line that the butter stems from.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bomber. A little lacking in anything that is memorable in an amber ale and a little astringent on the palate. Sort of fruity caramel aroma. Flavor is kind of sour? infected or purposefully done. I am inclined to think the former since there is not much else to bring this back to a well crafted beer.
