Pours bright amber with medium head. Aroma is full of caramel though a bit too much almost sickly sweet. The taste is sweet and citrusy with lots of malt. Doesn’t finish too well but still refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is dry malt with bread crust and hints of caramel late. It pours clear and oily, with a copper hue and a white, medium dense ring that leaves a light, runny lace. The taste is a medium bitter and light sweet. The beer is dry and thin with a buzzy foam carbonation. The medium body contains roasted notes with light caramel and wood notes and a resin flavor that strengthens at the finish. The aftertaste is burnt with some citrus rind and/or wax notes that linger.

Tap at the taproom July 30th. Notes are lacking in text. This wasn’t my favorite amber.

Not a bad beer but very mild on the tongue and watery. Not surprising at 5%. Carmel golden flavors with a very slight burnt tongue flavor. Enjoyable beer with a light hop. Just thin is the only bad part. Thin fading head.

Pours a nice copper color with off-white head. Caramel malts mainly on the nose, a little toffee too; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a roast character.

Not a good beer at all. Amber color. Musty aroma and musty taste. Seems more like a macro brew trying to be "premium". Won’t be trying this one again, no question. Blech.
