Tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy amber with a beige head. Malty aroma. Med body. It’s malty with a little hop. Chocolate note I seem to find in ambers. Not my thing.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Pint on tap at the Peppermill’s Bimini Restaurant. Clear copper with a lasting disc of foam. Aroma is toast, toffee and a bit of toasted nut. Tastes of caramel, toasted pecan, spicy citrus and hint of dry cocoa. Light-medium body has a pleasant medium carbonation and a nice balance.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"as with all their beers, this one was a bit of a letdown. not a whole lot to report on here...slightly substandard malt and hop aromas and flavor. Nothing bad, but really nothing good. re-rate 6/09: 4th best of the 8 they were serving...doesn’t really say a whole lot. not BAD, but not worth the price of a pint. darker than usual."

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
