Pour is copperish brown with a fizzy tan head. Nose is heavy sticky malt, hop oil, lots of sugar. Flavor is the same, sweet, sticky caramel malts, sugar, oily hop resin, low bitterness, syrupy feel, moderate carb, rough finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2015
Location: Draft at the brewery, 3/28/15
Aroma: The nose is caramel and earth, with some metallic notes.
Appearance: It pours a clear amber color with an off white head.
Flavor: Polio flavor, leans sweet, but with a light bitterness.
Palate: The body is light-medium, easy enough drinkability, lightly dry.
Solid enough approachable amber (not brown) ale. Makes sense as a gateway to craft beer, but not super interesting for a craft offering. (Cleaning up the rating, I have no idea what auto-corrected to "Polio" in my flavor deScription, but I think Iíll just leave it, itís too weird to fix.)

I think I love American Ales. Easy to drink and a good bit of flavor, a little bitter. Got my bottles from a very good alcohol store, Bottlerocket, in Norwalk.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A well-balanced ale that lies somewhere between a brown, an amber ale and an altbier. Some nutty flavor, crisp hops, caramel malt. A good middle-of-the-road flagship beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle late night while doing some reading. Pours copper with decent head. Nose is caramel and some herbal. Tastes of caramel, floral, sage, spicy pepper, and toast. Juicy palate. Not a brown ale but a fine beverage.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A clear cooper body with almost no head. Aroma was of mild caramel malts and some toasted malts. The hops were mostly bitter with some floral note. Flavor was a milder version of the aroma. Nothing special. Light on the palate.

Reddish amber color, minimal white head. Sweet and malty nose with some berries, "beet like" earthiness, grain, bread. Definitely a maltier "English" style pale ale. It kind of reminds me of Bass Ale, which ISNíT a bad thing necessarily. Pretty well made.

Tap. Nice notes of caramel malt, some hop and dough. Body was a bit thin. Not bad.
