3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 mL box. Dark amber with a medium, sticky, beige head. Nice looking beer. Aroma is mild but appealing - spicy/malty. The flavour is all nutty/ bready malt, but a little on the sweet side. Some earthy hops at the end - more Brit than continental. Not bad; just too sweet.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 341 ml
Aroma: clean, straight but wit too much of chocolate for Alt beer. Backing is better but still too fruity for style.6+
Look: proper., actually very good. Nice shade of amber-brown. Medium off white top. Sparse lace. 4-
Taste: medium bodied. Mineral feel with Schwartz bier like elements. Dark roast with sweet cola. hint of chocolate.
Other: it does have some alt character but it is not one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours maple syrup brown with a milky bubble cap that fades quickly. They go for a sweetness here that let’s the beer down. Underneath the smaltzy sugars there’s some interesting tastes: brisk malts, hints of bourbon, chocolate.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
341 mL Bottle. Amber body with a thin off-white head that settles to a foamy layer leaving some spotty lace. Aroma of sweet light malts, crystal malt, a little hint of caramel, and mildly pungent grassy hops. Flavor of sweet light malts with hints of crystal malt and taffy, a warm alcohol note, a grainy crystal malt and brown sugar aftertaste, and a clean finish. Delicious!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vague, with a hint of " seriously, this is an amber ale?" Amber in colour, not in flavour.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - 341ml. Amber body with a vanishing off-white bubbly head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar, woody, and cinnamon hints. Taste is slightly dominated by maltiness. It carries hoppy and brown sugar notes, and ends with a good bittersweet finish. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear dark amber with a nice off white head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate and cereal. Taste is a nice caramel malt body, cereal, grassy hops and a nice crisp and clean bitterness on the finish. Nice altbier style with tons of Aroma and flavor, medium carbonation, not sure why why this is rated so low.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
341ml bottle, 5.2% a/v
Pours a rich copper colour with a nice tan head. Aroma is deep sweet malt, dark fruit, and a hint of chocolate. Taste is malty and rich but lacks some hops to fully flesh it out. Palate sweet but nothing special. A pretty "meh" beer, not awful but not great.
