Rated 3/31/13. 22 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a dark reddish-brown color. The head is a two finger heavy cream shade. Retention starts off quickly, then seems to slow down as the bubbles in the head get smaller. Attractive lacing, too. S: This has a LOT of caramel malt in it, with a slight candied tone thrown in there as well. But the more I whiff it, the more a grassy, lemony hop character comes through. Not bad. T: Initially, this opens up very caramel-forward. Underlying all the caramel are hints of chocolate, and it finishes with some light Centennial hopping. The flavors here balance out too well - they seem to cancel out the interesting qualities they could have otherwise brought to the table. In other words, a typical amber ale. M: There’s too much sweetness on the palate, and it’s too thickly textured. The lack of flavor and unctuous palate feel - combined with the slightly-too-strong carbonation - makes this one really difficult to drink. O: This is the first offering from Speakeasy I’ve had, and I’m not impressed. It’s the poor drinkability combined with the dreadfully boring nature that kills it for me. Others will like this, I don’t - like I said before, a typical amber ale. It does improve once it warms up, at least.

Kolejny Amerykaniec :) Co prawda amber ale nie należy do moich ulubionych stylów, ale zawsze warto sprawdzić, co mają do zaoferowania browary zza Oceanu... Kolor bursztynowy, piana w kremowym kolorze na jeden palec. W aromacie całkiem ciekawie! Jest karmel, ciemne owoce i jakieś, bliżej niezidentyfikowane, przyprawy. W smaku słodowo i karmelowo z domieszką wcześniej wspomnianych przypraw. Fajna kompozycja. Wysycenie średnie. Całkiem przyzwoite piwo, wypiłem ze smakiem!
