4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Overall, this is what an American Amber Ale is supposed to taste like. Not overly hoppy or sweet, though the malt presence is there. The hop character (Some grapefruit notes) is on point, making this a beer to drink during any season. The color is definitely amber. Being a hop head, I can always go for more hop aroma, but hard to fault a commercial beer lacking in aroma.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at 15th Street Pizza and Pub. This was my first from Strawn. It was very well balanced, with a taste that had some banana on top of a solid malt base. A slight bit of tingly carbonation, Good job, I hope they grow and expand.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong, malty aroma has a dusty, hay-ish overtone. Pours a clear chestnut brown with a fairly thick light golden-tan head. Scrumptious flavor has a malty core with a dusty hay overtone and hints of pomme fruit and caramel. Texture has good firmness and a dusty tingle that persists, leaving a woody and straw-dusty finish. Interesting! I wish this new brewery well, very well.

16 ounce pint - $5.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Who the hell is Strawn Brewing Company?
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, dark amber-hued body with a slim, tight head, the color of old parchment paper.
Smell: Mostly notes of toast, of sweet-hinted caramel, with slim support from notes of fruit and hops.
Taste: Bready, moderately toasty malts with a nice, sweet caramel accent. Soft fruitiness with just a little apricot showing. Very mild floral, herbal hops, lightly bitter. Chiefly tastes of toasted bread crusts and caramel until the sweetish finish with some of the subtle fruitiness holding into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: An easy-drinking, solidly constructed, malt-forward amber ale.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from Moondog. Pours dark copper with a medium, tan head. The aroma is sour cherries, black bread, resin, and cereals. The flavor is very sweet and a little sour. There is a faint hop bitterness up front. The palate is medium to heavy, sticky, silky, and a little grainy. Overall, this is a surprisingly interesting and flavorful beer. Reminds me of a sour ale.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from HopCity. Pours cloudy, rusty brown color, rusty red colored head. Pours like a homebrewed, keg-conditioned ale. Little carbonation, which is nice. Aroma of malted grains, toast, light nuttiness, and fruit sugar. Flavor of toasted malts. No real presence of hops detected. Only flavor of toasted malts. Similar to a Mild Ale, but higher ABV. Dry finish. Well balanced, smooth texture. Finishes with a bit of a spicy, peppery tingle on the tip of my tongue. Very easy to drink. I think Amber Ales are my new style. Very impressive, sessionable brew.
