3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On-Tap at the brewpub. Served a nice amber color with a nice tan head and good lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt citrus and a trace of caramel.
Had a roasted malt and caramel flavor with a touch of citrus and a clean finish. Medium body smooth and quite creamy. Another good drinker from the brewpub. A nice change of pace brew. Well worth a try.

Pours a slightly hazy rich amber color with a tan head. Aroma is really nice caramel, toast, some biscuit, roast, a touch of honey, and some earthy hops. Flavor is malty, caramel, toast, some nice roast, and a bitter roasty earthy finish. Nice amber.

On tap at the brewery.
Sweet Amber malt. Strong bitter side as well. Caramel and chocolate. Rich but it has a very funky bite. Seems like something had gone off in here.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewery. Found this one to be the best of the bunch. I was surprised at the amount of roasted malts and coffee bitterness in this amber. That damn metallic taste is present in this as well- what’s with that? Flavor has a bit of a milky aftertaste that was interesting. I could have more of this, but it’s still just sorta there.
