4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2003 This beer really rocks.
The color is a beautiful Mohogany/Amber. The aroma is very malty and very fruity. Both really come through in the flavor as well. Very malty with a big fruity flavor (plums), but not sweet. The finish is crisp and clean. Just a terrific amber ale.

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."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewpub. The body was dark copper with a thick khaki colored head. The aroma was almonds and toast along with some oranges. The taste was walnus with some toast and citrus. A decent brew, but a little boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not much aroma, looks nice. Flavor is oky, a little frothy. More malty than what I like, but good for my wife.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear dark orange color. head was thin and off white without much lacing. Aroma and flavor was dominated by vegetables. Celery and grass were the dominant elements. There was also a bit of toasted bread. Dry and modestly bitter on the tongue. Wasn’t wild about this one.

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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. A mahogany brown reddish color. Lots of caramel and burnt malts. The first sip was rewarded with a cherry fruit flavor. Not being an amber fan, I was very impressed with this beer.
