3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big off-white head and has a reddish brown color. Very earthy malty aroma. There is a good amount of hops in this for an amber ale. Palate is pretty light and maybe has a little too much carbonation. Parts of the beer are kind of soapy. Plus I got this beer for 5 bucks a sixer. Maybe the bottle was quite old.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber color with a large foamy off white head with some suspended particulates. Nose is hoppy, earthy, touch of grass, fruits, caramel. Initial taste is earthy, toffee, citrus. Mid palate to finish develops that piney sharp hop balance with a touch fruits and malt backbone. Palate duration is above average. Good head retention. Medium body. Very drinkable probably my favorite amber ale so far.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; poured a nice looking auburn/amber color with medium sized off white head. Aroma was nice with herbal, biscuit, citrus and caramel/toffee elements. Pretty good for the style, especially since this style is normally hard to distinguish for me. Good amount of pine citrus/hop finish with caramel, malty backbone. Palate is slightly chewy.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a rusty shade with quite the big poofy head. Nice aroma of caramel malt wafts thru the barrier. The beer delivers with a nice toasty, sweet maltiness. Just a glimmer of bitter kiss at the end to balance out with the maltiness. I agree with their blurp, this would go well with a burger. (#3149, 10/21/2007)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep amber with a medium head. This beer shows notes of yeasty maly with nice notes of carmel. These flavors show on the palate with decent amount of light bitterness. One of the best amber that I have had in a long time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle from bmartin08...I was shocked at much I enjoyed this beer, I’m not normally a fan of ambers, but the hops on this one caught me off guard! Very pleasant dry hopped taste/aroma, would definitely buy again if it were available by me

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a deep red with an off-white head. Scents of faint hops and some malt on the nose. Malt and thick caramel start at the beginning as it bitters into the finish. It smoothed out as it warmed but was a bit ragged in the beginning.
