2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pale caramel color with a little bit of white head. Aroma is very mild...almost non-existent, but maybe a hint of malt. Strong carbonation with a thin mouthfeel. Flavor is moderately sweet with hint of caramel and malt. Not very hoppy. Clean finish. Not much to this, but it’s drinkable.

Not much here. Typical amber. Mediocre taste and aroma. Nutty by nature.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle. Pours clear autumn amber color, with minimal to no gray head. Aroma of dust, leaves, caramel. Medium to light bodied, and flavor at first presents caramel and then moves to a dusty, nutty finish of almond, cashew. I guess I can see what they were going for here but ultimately it leaves a flat, underwhelming impression. That’s even taking into account that this is meant to be a lighter session beer. It is far from horrible or undrinkable, and it is kind of unique in a way, but this will be a one time thing for me.

Rather weak maltiness, just didn’t work at all. Probably among the best examples of a below average amber ale ever.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours clear amber with a nice one finger head and no lacework, aroma is sweet and citrusy similar to an IPA only with no bitterness. The flavor is light malt and not much else, watery with amber style malt. Unimpressed with the beer overall, a decent amber ale, but a pretty uninspired beer as a whole.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. Good head retention and some lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and hops in the finish. The taste is grainy malts with some toastiness, tart notes, caramel and a leafy hop finish. Medium bodied.

Not a bad beer. Pour is smooth and clean. The honey flavor is somewhat mild. Beer is ok
