Simple, but tasty. Pours a very nice red. No smell whatsoever. Taste is simplistic, but a decent amber for warming up after a ski day. Had on tap at the brewery.

On draft at the brewery/restaurant.
Aroma:caramel/roasted malts, low aroma
Taste:dyacital, caramel, roasted malts
Overall: This was a thick chewy beer. The aroma and flavor were mild so the thick body was really off putting to me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Light brown in color with a small white head. Hazelnut and some caramel in the nose. The taste is of caramel, grass, some cocoa, bread and grassy hops. Dry and dusty finish. Nicely balanced. Average carbonation. Mild, but pleasant. This was one of their better beers.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear medium amber with nice white head and good lacing. Aroma is mostly malty and caramelly without too much hop presence. Flavor is mainly caramel malt, along with a little roastiness and mild citrusy hops. A little butterscotch. Medium body with average carbonation and a pretty standard non-hoppy amber ale mouthfeel. Overall, meh, pretty average. Drinkable I guess.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewpub. Low aroma (kind of like a Vienna lager), appearance good. Good head retention. Most important the flavor was good. The favor wasn’t hot w/alcohol but I caught a buzz.
