3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled March 13, 2014.
Appearance: The body is a crystal clear gorgeous hue of garnet with a dense tan had.
Aroma: The aroma is a bit restrained but caramel and general malt sweetness is apparent with a hint of sweet orange and grassy hops. The aroma smells very nice and clean, itís a shame itís not stronger.
Taste: Mildly hoppy from the start with a tangerine hop flavor accompanied by an underlying caramel and nutty malt base. Very nicely balanced with a slight sweet leaning edge to it. The hop flavor becomes a touch candy orange like by the end.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Iím impressed with how well this is done. I like the balance through it and the flavor combinations. I would like to drink this a bit fresher, but itís still nice 3 months in!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. I never really drink too many amber ales, but had to try this because of the label and name. It was quite a nice brew. A lot more toffee and caramel taste than I am used to ambers, with nice slick toasty mouth feel. It also had quite a bit of hopping too, a really unique amber.

Pours a ruby red with a thin white head. Aroma is hard to place..fairly horrible. Taste is similar...not good. Thereís a fairly disgusting aftertaste....

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled on 03/13/14. Nose is crytal-heavy with sweet hops and a touch of caramel, pours a very pretty scarlet with full carbonation and a rocky tan head. Taste is somewhat dry with hoppy bitterness striking firmest at the back end, lots of earthy toffee and caramel with faint booze seepage. Light-medium body, barest hint of dough behind the bright citrus, crystal, caramel. A little green, but only barely, otherwise really refreshing and strikes a nice balance.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml brown bottle. Orangey red pour, fairly clear. Small but creamy and long lasting tan head, good sticky lace. Nose has some bright pine and citrus hops and some earth and caramel. Taste has toffee malts, nut, toasted malt, bit of roast and earth, orange peel and piney hops. Aftertaste has citrus and pine hops and a bit of lasting malts. Medium bitterness. Overall a very pleasant amber ale, good balance and way better than expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is well balanced with a nice mix of slightly floral elements and a bit of caramel coming through. Taste is a little sweet, yet remains light enough to be an easy drink. I canít complain about this one too much. Not bad.
