2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours amber with minimal head. Slight caramel aroma, but not much else. Not much to taste either: a bit of roastiness and an inappropriate amount of hop bitterness. Bit too carbonated for my taste. Bitter finish.

Bottle. Lactic caramel malt and weedy hay aroma. Amber with large tan head. Lightly sweet caramel malt,moderate sour milk, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Okay body. Not so good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a semi-burnt dark orange almost red color with a quickly dissipating finger?s worth of white foamy head that left mild stringy lace.
The aroma starts floral touching down on a nice caramel to toffee malt base.
The flavor leads with the malts yet embraces a nice floral hoppy arrangement agreeing to balance nicely. Well balanced malts to hops aftertaste with a dry balanced finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good for the style and for me.
Overall, nicely done amber ale that I would have again.
