3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from early August, so itís not the freshest - Pours copper with orange highlights. Nose is herbal hops, light citrus, and a dry bready maltiness. A touch of sharpness. Taste is interesting. Itís dry and bready, with a bit of nuttiness, and thereís a little herbal hopping. It doesnít seem to mesh very well though...itís a little dry and astringent. I assume the hops have faded after 4 months, leaving just that dry malt base. Itís thinnish, with gentle carbonation. Interesting, but I think I need to have this fresh.

12 oz. bottle. Pours red brown with a khaki tight foamy head that leaves a wispy film and lacing. Aroma has really nice caramel malt and sugar with a little spice. Taste has nice spice caramel malt and a bitter dry earthy hop presence. Palate is medium and a little sticky with a chalky dry finish. Solid!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice toasted flavor and aroma, well-balanced with some caramel malt. Toastier than your standard Amber; maybe bordering on American Brown? Moderate hop character; secondary to the malt, but itís there.

Bottle. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex hop and caramel malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.

Bottle; poured clear, dark auburn type color with a smallish tan head. Aroma of caramel, toast, floral and earthy dry hopping. Flavor had some nice hops up front, fading to a slightly sweet caramel middle, with the return of the hops in the finish. Pretty well balanced, with some nice complexity. For the style, very nice.
