2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out a bright ruby red with a slim beige head. The nose is caramelly and nutty with grainy overtones. A hint of citrus hops and nuts in the middle with way too much sweetness throughout for an amber ale. I just couldnít care for the mouthfeel and the sweetness

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up on tap at the Tamarack brewpub with deep copper brown body and thin off white head. The mild aroma offers up a bit of roasted malts and sweet malts to sweet nuttiness. The taste has plenty of roasted malts and some dark roasted malts flowing into malt sweetness along with faint spicy hop notes. This is a pretty roasty amber.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Part of the tasting tray at the brewpub. Clear medium copper amber, low aroma of fruity caramel. Candy-ish caramel sweetness, lightly fruity. Pretty thin with very low bitterness. Not my favorite, given that Iíve had some excellent hoppy ambers lately.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at brewpub. Red/amber colour. The aroma is citric, sweet and malty. The flavor brings orange, grapefruit, pine, caramel, toffee and a nice soft bitterness. A decent little session beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Clear brown amber with a white head. Nose is lightly toasted malts, some caramel and nuts. Medium bodied yet still somehow a bit thin, flavor just isnít working for me. Thereís an odd roasty flavor, some nuts, not much in the way of hops or bitterness. Finish is short, some caramel.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear nut brown. Very roasty, nutty nose with notes of cocoa. Medium bodied with well rounded mouthfeel and nice, dense malt character with some salty, grassy hops atop. Balanced bitterness. An harmonious amber ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear red/amber, thin white head, spotty lacing. Nose is rich caramel malt, spicy grapefruit hops; Flavours are medium-bodied, a bit clunky. Based on the nose I expected better things in my mouth... Ah well, still a decent Amber, just rather disappointing in the mouth.
