2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This beer smells incredible, but does not taste like it smells. It has a nice caramel aroma to it, but is way too carbonated and has a quick drying finish. Those same caramel notes come rushing back when you swallow... but they are dry and weak. This is a good beer for someone that doesnít know what craft beer is. Plus, I love the label. The dog is adorable! I am glad that this is on our 1001 Bottles list, but I wouldnít order it again.

The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
Itís tasty and sessionable.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap @ Wingers, Elko, NV. Pours a clear medium amber w/ minimal head. Not too much taste to speak of, some malt, but fairly watery and bland. Goes down like a light beer, but surprisingly has a decent aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: A creamy, flavorful Amber thatís smooth and easy to drink. Drop Top is fermented by an American Ale yeast to produce beer with a clean flavor and fruity aroma. The velvet texture is from the use of Honey malt and a touch of milk sugar. The Magnum bittering hops provide soft bitterness, while Simcoe, a newly developed hop variety, adds unique hop flavor and aroma.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
My wife bought this - Iím not sure why - but itís in the house, so I guess Iíll rate it - clear dark copper - creamy, well-sustained head - nose of lightly floral hops, light caramel sweetness, a bit of biscuity malt - light body - creamy texture - nothing offensive here, but pretty darn boring - some toasted grain, some bready malt - lightly estery on the tail end, with mildly peppery hops - bland, but drinkable.

12 ounce bottle at the Beerhive. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. No nose, I mean youíd have to struggle with olfactory greatness to achieve much. Light apricots, biscuit, watery, nothing offensive and very light.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice easy drinking amber. Clean Flavor with slight sweetness. Very little hop presence. Enough for bittering and some help towards aroma but the honey malt and milk sugar stand out. A general go to when wanting something pleasant to drink.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This ale poured a med amber colour with a big, frothy, off white head. No lacing. To the nose there are scents of gravy, malt and light caramel. First sip was smooth but a little watery with nothing really strong in its flavour but malt and very minute amount of hops. Finish is watery and lifeless but drinkable. Just nothing special.
