4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours deep copper/red... minimal head and lacing. Aroma has a nice spicey hop characteristic to go along with the light roasted malt backbone. Flavor starts out all-malt, but has a very nice citrus/spicey hop flavor to balance. At 4.4% abv, this a perfect session beer for people who like more complex flavors. Well done.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On-Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom, poured into Shaker Pint glass.
pours a medium brown that has a copper glow around the glass with a creamy white head that dissolves into a broken ring around the shaker. Aroma has caramel malt, tart cranberry and earthy hops. Very unique aroma for an Amber. Flavor is a little watery upfront but develops into a caramel and toffee, once it shows itself, and a mild bitterness. It has a light-medium body that coats your mouth with every sip. Extremely sessionable and unique ale but the nose leads you to believe it may be more complex than it ends up being.

Great power on the nose lovely spicy hops, very deep red with thin head. Lovely fresh vibrant beer, loads of delightful citrus/grapefruit/resin & a nice dry finish but tempered by rounded maltiness. For a beer at 4.4% this packs great flavour & balance
