3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had no idea what I was getting into when I got this -- mainly because my friend drank my last SNPA so he gave me one of these instead. A good beer. Good amber color with a decent head. More hops than a lot of ambers.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft. Pours a rusty amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of red and caramel malts, some earthy and pine hops. Flavor is oxidized, mildly sweet, generically bitter. Somewhat metallic. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Average palate in general. This is mediocre.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cor de cobre com tons rubi, cristalina e com espuma cremosa bege de média formação e alta persistência regular/bom lacing;
Aroma de caramelo, toranja e toques de maracujá;
Sabor de início de caramelo rapidamente equilibrado pelo amargor cítrico de toranja com final levemente adstringente; retrogosto também levemente adstringente.
Cerveja bem equilibrada entre malte e lúpulo, com um perfil bem inglês para uma cerveja americana.

3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good flavor. Not much nose. A little astringent aftertaste, but might be due to bar lines. Overall I would drink again.

Smell: Caramel; Molases; Dates; Diacetyl
Taste: Cola; Citrus Hops; kinda like a cheap soda… like Shasta.
Mouth-feel: Medium Carbonation; Thin body; sticky, sugary
Overall: Not good at all. Really disappointed in this one, because I have respect for Speakeasy and generally love their beers. Too bad.

12 oz bottle pours dark red with a off-white head. Bottle from 11/20/13. Dammit. Earthy and caramel. Bland, papery flavor. Gotta get some freshies from these guys.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice amber color but otherwise underwhelming. A bit bready, a bit soapy. A fairly generic amber without a lot of subtlety. Soapiness definitely hangs around.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Jacob’s Pickles, NYC. Clear amber colored, medium head. Hoppy nose, malts, caramel, some fruit. Pretty sweet flavor, caramel, malts, some bitterness in finish. Despite the hops it felt too sweet for me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Pine notes and a caramel backbone. Clear amber with a bubbly brown head. Lots of toffee with a resinous hoppy bitterness. Finish is very dry and bitter. The finish is what prevents this beer from being awesome.
