2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Surprisingly this had an amber color. Foamy, spotty lacing. Sweet grainy nose. Sweet grainy palate too. Nothing special. From State College PA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very intriguing beer to me, rather bland on some occasions, and yet still satisfies with a diverse palate on others. Taste is pistachio, roasted malt, and chocolate. Smell is malt, wheat, oak and cocoa. Pretty good amber.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very red through the light; perfectly creamy looking head consistency. Red metal & wet leather aroma. Creamy smooth malted body; one of the better tasting ambers Iíve had in a good while. Indeed, smooth almost to a fault, and the palate barely register, though very easy to drink. Tastes almost nitro pumped, even out of the bottle. Frankly, Iím very impressed. One of the better beers Iíve had in North Carolina.

From a 12 oz bottle at home. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Banana notes in the nose. Flavors of malt. An okay beer but not to my taste.

355 ml bottle from jsprime. Amber with a tan head. Caramel barley candy aroma. The flavour is more in balance but itís still a toasty cara malt bomb. A serviceable amber. Fine for what it is.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light amber pour with almost no head. Sweet nutty caramel, grainy and metallic character. Sweeter brown sugar and powdery chocolate flavor with caramel and touch of pine at the end. Not terrible.
