3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Pours a clear brown-copper with a medium, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Sweet aroma of toasted malt, caramel and a hint of chocolate. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate and a hint of nuts with a mildly bitter finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not bad for an amber ale, more closely resembles a brown ale though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much in the aroma, easily one of the darkest amber ales I?ve seen. Almost more brown than red. The body also seems to have a little bit of the nut flavors common with browns. But it is lighter and has some hops in the finish. I?m liking it.
After finishing, I found it too sweet and lowered my score.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured an amber color, clear, and not much head. Aroma was very weak and all I got was some hints of sweetness. Taste was lightly caramel and fizzy with hints of sulfur. Not very good.

Pours a clear brown with a thin off white head that almost totally disappears. Aroma is rich maltiness, caramel, chocolate, grainy, nutty and faint hop presence maybe citrus. Flavour is caramel, nutty, chocolate, mild bitterness, citrus and over all a rich malty beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite dark for an amber, with the malty caramel chocolate notes that sometimes implies. Maybe a tad too sweet but still pretty tasty.

Rating #2. Had in 16oz can. Wasn't expecting much. Poured to a light amber color with not much aroma but extremely enjoyed the smooth taste without any bitterness. One of my favorite amber ales to date.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep copper with a red hue a d a frothy light brown head. Aroma of rich caramel, light chocolate, nutty and grainy with very little floral/citrus hops. Taste is rich caramel, chocolate, nuts, toast and a medium light bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied but we’ll balanced...Would like to see more hop aroma/flavor on this but otherwise it’s a nice brown/Irish red.
