3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at le Mondial de la bière 2005. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Interesting aroma of spicy and citrusy hops with caramel and malt. The hops is less present is the flavor, it’s there but not as interesting, there’s caramel in there, the finish is mild and bitter. The body is medium with a creamy texture, the carbonation level is moderate. Good aroma, wimpy flavor.

A good hoppy ale (I’d call it an IPA). Had this on tap at home last summer and loved it. It poured a slightly dark amber color with a slightly hoppy aroma. It’s also very well balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at macgrady’s, pour is a deep amber color with a creamy white head. the scents of sweet caramel malts and flowery hops are strong, with hints of citrus. the flavor is very nicely balanced, starting with sweet hops, sliding to the malts, ending with the citrus flavors. a nice medium body with a bitter finish, but it doesnt linger around. a very nice and easy to drink ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a reddish-gold with a light, thin, tan head. Smells are sweet and citrusy with some strident hoppy aromas. Interseting combonation.
Taste is a strong fruity malt. Peachy undertones in its sweetness. Followed by a solid hoppy flavor, well balanced with the malty fruitiness. Again, flavors are nicely balanced. Lightly sticky mouthfeel with a lingering bitter hops finish. Creamy. A very interesting and drinkable ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 A 12 oz bottle of Troegs Amber Ale-While pouring a pint glass, shows lots of carbonation. Clear amber color with a full head. Smell the hops. A good, crisp ale! Would be nice if the dating was easier to find and then read. Of the 6 bottles, only 1 was legible enough to determine it was bottled Oct ’04.
