3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location/Date:Bottle on December 21st, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a red copper semi-clear.
Aroma: Aroma of caramel, faint dough.
Taste: Light floral bitterness, sweet caramel.
Palate:Medium light body, lingering aftertaste, faint fizz.
Summary: A solid amber ale but nothing sticks out. Probably my least favorite beer from The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery and itís the lightest in color - maybe thatís not a coincidence.

Unexpected funk in the nose that was a surprise, but sharp pleasant bite for an amber. Nice round bitterness with a bit of sweet malts to even it out a little. I am on the fence with this one. Interesting profile but a little unusual.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber appearance with a large tan head and good lacing. Muted, sweet malt aroma . Moderately sweet taste, some tartness, some herbal hops. A touch of sourness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel with an average length finish.

Ok. Caramel and bread with lots of citrus and resin hops. Amber with an off white foam. Bitter with a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied with a bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from The Foodery, Center City, Philadelphia. A clear reddish copper colour with a fast fading cream head; rich aromas of caramel and malts; creamy texture with lots of malt and caramel, without being too sweet; thereís some shortlived bitterness too, and some warmth to the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best before July 2012.
A: This beer is absolutely stunning with itís crystal clear dark amber/copper body with a healthy amount of carbonation showing. A dense light tan head sits on top with excellent retention and leaving a nice mess on the sides of the glass.
S: Slightly sweet and slightly forward caramel malts. This is a very simple beer in aroma, though a tad relaxed.
T: Bready malts up-front with mild caramel notes throughout, the finish has a slightly roasted finish with more caramel sweetness. This ends up being semi-sweet and balanced well. This is something I would give to my BMC beer drinking friends without hesitation.
M: Medium bodied with light carbonation. A bit watery even.
O: This is a great beer for what it is, I wouldnít hesitate to buy this for friends if the price were right.

Not a giant fan of this beer. Amberís arenít known for assaulting the senses, but this one could have tried a little harder. Bronzed water with a bit of caramel. Tried at the Cuniganís tasting party in 2012.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a darker copper color thatís a little bit redder. Minimal head. Strong malty taste and aroma to it; the aroma has a little bit of sweetness to it, as well. A very interesting amber ale, but not one of my favorites from Duck-Rabbit.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear medium amber with full head that reduces quickly to the rim; dots of lace. Caramel malt infused with dark fruit, followed by a hint of bittering and carbonation. Decent, but Duck-Rabbit has other selections that are much better.
