3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another good beer from Weyerbacher (do they make a bad one?). At 1st, I was going to give this very high marks but then as the bottle progressed, I felt it needed a little sweetness to balance the metallic/hoppy flavor. Great color, not much aroma. Overall, pretty good but could be great with a little hint of sweetness.

12oz bottle @ Coles, Buffalo, NY. Nice looking copper color. Thats where the positives end. Very bland , almost no taste what so ever. Got a little better as it warmed up.

Bottle. Aroma was toasty malts with a hint of hops. Poured a nice amber. Flavor was toasty and biscuity. Palate was ok nothing big. Overall it was okay I was hoping for a tinge more though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle (thanks to TY5592) poured a nice clear amber color with a decent off white head. Aroma was nothing special with mostly caramel malt. The taste was smooth with a nice malty flavor, but no hops to back it. Overall a good starting beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted in the sample room before the brewery tour on 11/3/2006. A non-offensive brew that was a good way to begin the day. Lacks the overwhelming complexity of some of their bigger beers, but it was still a treat to get a taste. More malty (caramel, biscuit) than hoppy. I’m looking to exploring it deeper on my next trip at the end of December 2006.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Enchanting pale copper. Uneven eggshell fluff melts, leaving swags of sticky lace. Chewy caramel malt nose shares the stage with marigold, lemon zest, and perppermint hop aromas. Perhaps some pear-y, crabapple, and bubblegum wrapper esters... Bass yeast? Barley mash flavor features a sharp/tart quinine and mineral edge, along with a phosphoric hop twang. Full ,buttery body, plus pinpoint bubbles, tingly like steel wool. Dry and clean grassy aftertaste. A simple yet well-crafted and refreshing quaffer... closer to a best bitter than an amber.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Definitely an amber after the first sip with some malty dominance and some fruity flavors underneath. It could be a bit more balanced. I like it better than the ESB which isn’t a flavorful. Hopefully this one will evolve like hops infusion did.
Rerate: this one is growing on me and the malty dominance is a plus. I like that malty twinge in the aftertase which reminds me of UK brews except with a fuller body. The carbonation factor is a plus.

Bottle from Ty5592. Thanks broseph. Boring amber color is no head or carbonation to speak of. Smells like a generic craft brew. Yep. I just poured some down my throat. Not so tasty. Maybe Im just not into ambers. Yeah, I think thats it.

Bottle from Ty5592. Thanks again Ty.
Pours a clear amber-copper with a dash of cream colored head. Light hoppy-candy bar nose almost Bock-like.
A bit sweet and malty. A decent Amber.
