3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle poured pint glass. Pours a beautiful amber color with a frothy head. Beer unfortunately looks better than it tastes but the hoppy red taste is still there. I found my taste wanting more hoppiness but that due to my love for ipas! This beer does the trick for your hopped amber beer needs. Its solid taste, beautiful color, and consistant head make this beer a great decision for a Monday night.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Local Belmont bottle. Clear amber pour with a medium, foamy head and decent lacing, Bigger aroma that starts with sweeter hops and finishes with sweet malt. Huh? Everything kinda disappears in the flavor. Just some lingering, flat bitterness. High hopes faded quickly.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep copper amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty dark caramel nose with some light citrus notes and mild oxidation. Starts with average fullness and sweet caramel malts with a decent amount of grassy and citrus hop flavor before a drier bittersweet finish. Body has a little more oxidation than Iíd like and the bottle is fairly fresh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Clear light amber color. One and a half fingers of creamy beige head. Retention is average with small amounts of nonuniform lacing.
3.0 S: Not really that hoppy despite the label telling me that it would be. Anyway, floral and herbal hops. Moderate caramel. Thatís about it.
3.5 T: Same deal as the nose. Mildly hoppy with a flowery and herbal taste. Caramel from the malts. Very clean. Taste good, but pretty standard.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Mild creaminess. Feels right for the brew.
3.5 D: A tasty, clean, easy drinking amber, but thatís all it is. Donít expect to be impressed, but youíll enjoy it nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with a persistent, medium-sized off-white head. Good looking beer. Aroma is spicy, citrusy hops and some sweet malt. Flavor is rather hoppier but still pretty nicely balanced.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. clear burnt red color with a small white head. big toasted malt nose with biscuits and lesser notes of caramel. flavor is significantly more hoppy than the aroma suggests. flavors of bitter citrus hops that are complimented with a nice toasty malt. i love this style. similar to an irish ale but with an american style hop addition.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber appearance with an average size head and very good lacing. Subtle, spicy, herbal hop aroma. Grainy malts back up the woodsy, dry, bitter hop flavors that seem more floral and herbal than citrus. Well carbonated, medium bodied mouthfeel with a lingering finish. Enjoyed in a bottle but think this would be great cask conditioned.
