3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Dark amber/copper with a nice white head that holds on and leaves nice lacing.
S: Toasted malt aroma with brown sugar some citrus and hint of pine.
T: Malt taste with touch of caramel up front that is quickly taken over by a citrus hop flavor and finishes with a floral bitterness that borders on being astringent.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes semi dry.
D: Simplistic in its taste. A bit more malt would have been appreciated and the borderline astringency keeps it from being a better beer for my taste.

355ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold.
Aroma: Crisp, pine hop. A little malt poking through.
Appearance: Clear ruby/amber body with a thin off-white cap. Decent lacing.
Taste: Nice piney hop. Not too bitter at all. Quite tasty!
Palate: Light bodied for sure. A good long finish, though. Ends on citrusy hops.
Overall: Underrated. Lower-alcohol, lighter bodied, but doesn’t skimp on flavor at all. Great stuff!

In bottle with @gmellison poured brown. Smells earthy like rye to me. Very smooth mouth feel and taste lightly like rye but it’s very good

Pours amber-red with a medium off white head. Aroma is pine-like hops and freshly brewed black tea. Taste is a beautiful blend of the above aromas and perfectly balanced. The pine (maybe citrus rind too) hop flavors and black tea-like bitterness arive up front and go all the way to the finish. The malt flavors are so much like tea its crazy. Awesome amber!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Pours a beautiful copper color with a chunky 1.5 finger head that sticks around for a while. This is definitely how an amber ale should look.
S- Smell is very malty, caramel, with hints of pine on the back end.
T- Taste is very smooth, wheaty, long piney hop notes, caramel, slight floral taste.
M- Thin to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
D- For a 4.4 percent beer, it gives you a ton of flavor. Great session brew. At the price I think I would rather have one of their other offerings though.

Deep copper color with a small off white head. Aroma is hops, pine, hint of citrus and hint of caramel/malt. Taste is hoppy, hint of citrus and caramel with a nice ending bitterness. A favorite one.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a transparent copper color with plenty of bubbles and a foamy white head. Has a grassy, pine, aroma. Taste is heavy on the pine, with some citrus and moderate hops. This has the character of an IPA more so than any amber ale I have had, but it’s the best amber I’ve had so far. Has a medium body feel with some carbonation. Delicious.
