3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. bottle from daknole. Thanks Dakine! Pours a golden red color with a one finger head, moderate retention and low lacing. Very strong toasted malt aroma with some light floral hop notes. Taste is toasted malts, grain, caramel and cinnamon-like spices. Almost like a pumpkin spice ale. Medium bodied with thin spots here and there.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Craft. Pours gold with off-white head. One of the golder ambers I’ve had. The nose and flavor had hopcitrus, pale male, and some mild fruit, but not a great deal was going on with this one. Average and forgettable for me.

Semi-sweet and moderately bitter. Toasted oat aroma and copper colored body. The finish is smooth, but there is nothing too spectacular here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz bottle. Poured clear medium amber with a nice initial cap of white head that receded to a film in a minute or so. Aroma found toasted caramel with a nice citrus presence (oranges primarily)... quite pleasant.
Flavor picked up toasty caramel, a hint of marshmallow, cereal notes, and a low-ish level of floral bitterness. Smooth on the palate with the mild bitterness.. a touch soapy on the back-end. Decent brew.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light caramel malt aroma. Amber with a small head. Light caramel malt flavor with a light hops finish. A subtle beer - nothing too bold with this beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Compact 16 oz bottle. Pours more copper than amber with light tan head. The aroma is very light and seems to consist of two different malts. One is a lightly roasted variety, Munich maybe, the other is a bit more roasted. The flavor might have a touch of the lightly roasted grains but it is more roasted malts or slightly nutty. The hops actually come through a bit stronger than the malts. It is a nicely balanced light tasting beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 500 ml
Appearance: neat, rich with full depth color of amber-gold. Fine creamy (on thin side) head was presented.
Nose :Strong yet balanced aroma , front of green hops with golden malts. Caramel cookie dough with citrus.
Flavor/Palate : Sadly I was its body to be shallow , empty shell of malt with faint hop touch that sat on lips. Dusty, forgettable ending with short episode of alcohol. Average at best.

Pretty average beer, it is watery for an amber, i had it side by side with the maibock and they were the same color, barely different beers aside form this one didn’t have as much diacetyl as the maibock.

On tap @ the Über Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Bland sweetish caramel with wintergreen notes. Odd.
