2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewery. Nice copperish amber pour. No retention. A bit of roast and burnt cocoa blends with mainly malt, malt, malt on the nose. Flavor is pretty much nil of anything...watery and lightly LIGHTLY hopped near the end. Not too impressed with this one, but usually are not with ambers.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Bardenay - Aroma of toasted malt, flavor was similar, nice toasted grainy and malty flavour, I honestly thought this was at least on par with some of the much more popular ambers out there, I would definitely drink this again...

On draft at Bardenay in Eagle. Clear reddish amber pour with a one finger white head. It’s an easy drinking malty amber ale. I liked it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
3/7/08 on draught at the brewpub. Aroma is highly malt dominant, with a strong roast, almost Munich character. Hops are nearly nonexistant. Appearance is clear reddish gold with a medium maintained off white head. Flavor is still malt dominant, but the roast is not as strong and gives more of a sweet/sour presentation accomapanied by low earthy bittering. Mouthfeel is medium/low bodied with a medium carb feel and tangy finish. Overall, this isn’t to style but there’s just not much to complain about; good and easy drinking.

On tap at brewpub pours out a hazy amber topped with a light tan head. Pretty cool hop/malt mix. A good tasting amber.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft: Pours a very dark amber with reddish tones, large white head, and thick lacing. Nose is faint malt, earthiness, and floral hops. The taste is more of hops than of malt; a little earthiness and some florals. Lingering finish of light bitters. Different from the mainstream ambers I’ve tried recently - in a good way.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
On Tap at brewpub: I was disappointed with this ale. It is Amber’s like this one that makes me want to switch my favorite style from an amber to something else. It had sweet, malty aromas and tastes which I can deal with, even though I prefer a more bitter aftertaste. But the combination of too much carbonation and a watery feel made me think it was lacking something. Since I am not a brew master, I don’t know what it was -- hops maybe? Anyway, I am going to have to say "nothing great - go back to the drawing board. Get Mack & Jack’s recipe!"

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On Tap at the brewpub
Deep redish amber witha small off-white head and nice lacing. Very light, woody malt flavor and I couldn’t detect hardly any hoppiness. A littel bitternes at the end and drinkable I suppose.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a bad amber; nutty and biscuitey flavor; moderatly light body; flavorful yet only slightly hoppy, chocolate notes; fairly complex and full of charactor for an amber; nice!
