2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A sweet caramel aroma with some crisp hoppiness. Flavor is more sweetness followed by some pleasant mild bitterness. I also get some vanilla. For some reason I have always thought this beer tasted like OE. Maybe it is the sweetness. This amber ale is also very easy to drink, as I put down a pitcher and proceeded to go home and function properly. It is ok. Better than MBC, but something just doesnt do it for me here.

Single bottle purchase from the Binny’s in Orland Park, IL: This pours a clear copper body with a short-lived fizzy head. No lace. It has a sweet malty aroma with some old honey and a touch of orchard fruit. The flavor adds a touch of mineral water - most unwelcome. Drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color. Medium head. Aroma is malty. A light bodied amber. Malts are nutty and slightly sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Kind of a lighter flavored amber. Very drinkable, but somewhat lacking in flavor. What flavor there is is nice, but it needs to be turned up a notch. I am probably being a little critical, it a drinkable amber, light and refreshing. Don’t really notice the lactose (milk sugar). Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Had this at the french restaurant on the 10th floor of the Eiffel Tower restaurant in the Paris hotel & casino Las Vegas. It’s interesting to see that ratings for this brew seem to be all over the map! I had this with a few buddies, and we all agreed that it was terrific. Clear toffee-amber with aromas of butterscotch, apricot, and pepper. Delicious palate that more resembles an American pale than an amber in its complexity-- caramel malt with citrus and spice elements with subtle bitterness in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light amber color with foamy white head. Sweet aroma. Taste is caramel and malty sweet without a hoppy backbone. A fairly one dimensional beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice shiny amber color wtih perfect foam head. Light hoppy aroma. Medium caramel tones with decent underpinning of bitterness, bit of an ashy texture. Better than most beers in the world, but not as good as many.

On tap at Pete’s Lair Tavern in Milwaukie, Oregon. Pours a coppery amber brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and very good lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, some tropical fruit with a touch of caramel. Taste is smooth, medium bodied and light carbonation. Flavor of sweet caramel mult-grain malt with some light citrus hop character. Finish is light and a semi-sweet aftertaste.

Bottle. The body was dark gold, nearly copper with an off white head. The smell was sweet oranges with a little bit of cinnamon spice and some almond. The taste was ginger with some hints of clove. The finish was old apple core.Not sure what is to be enjoyed in this one.
