This is a heavy sweet beer, with a rich malt flavor. A little sour, with some notes of prune or raisin.

Bottle at home from notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted grainy malts, some floral and herbal tea hop character, some bready character, a splash of toffee, just ok.

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.

Light amber pour. Smells like soda and raspberries... Flavor is nutty, slight hops, fruits. Fuck you Tyranena this is not an altbier. But it isn’t terrible
