2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can [500ml]. Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size lasting foamy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma of fruit, caramel malt, light hops and nuts. Flavour, also somewhat sweet, of caramel malt, light nuts, light hops and that’s it, simple. Light bitter finish. Average bodied. Nothing exciting here but as far as Amber Ales go it’s decent.

caramel, bread, toast, grass, vanilla, amber, orange, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter,
Pours a nice amber almost approaching copper with white foam. Foam does not last long, but the sweet, toasty, and grass aromas linger (I’m sure there’s some vanilla in there too). Taste is very light on the sweet with bread and refreshing citrus. Bitterness is understated but balances well. Light carbonation gives this thin bodied beer a slickness on the tongue. Finishes slightly dry with a mild bitter aftertaste.

Pours a nice amber colour with nice white bubbly head leaving an awesome sticky white lace. Mainly caramel and accompanying grains make up the aroma. Carbonation is quite apparent with flavours of sweet caramel maltiness, a certain dryness with light hop bitterness to finish it off. Better than I remember it. Would make a good session beer.

Amber colour with an off white head. Caramel and a bit grassy aroma. Medium to light body. A bit over to the sweet side and light bitter. Light texture. Sweet caramel are dominating the flavour. Also some grassy notes. Very flat.

330 ml bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a clear amber with modest-sized whiteish head. Aroma is sweet caramel and grains. Flavour is also dominated by sweet caramel with some graininess and a light bitterness in finish. Nothing special but pleasant.
