3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a nice red/copper color with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was of sweet malts with a tint of hop fruitiness. Taste was primarily of mallts upfront with a slightly nutty hint and a moderate bitterness fruity/piney hop backend. Palate is good to decent. Overall, a nice amber ale.
Good for what it is but not a beer I’d pick up and drink though great on a cold day and a need for a marley-forward beer.
Great looking beer with little aroma and a simple grain forward palate.
Bottle day after Christmas in sub zero temps.

Lovely reddish brown pour. Faint head, some lacing on the glass. Malt and tea aroma. Lighter malts and a watery mouthfeel. OK but not stupendous. ON tap at Jacksons Blue Ribbon Pub, Milwaukee. Carlisle (865) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2017
Draft. Pours red-amber with off-white head and substantial lacing. Bread malt aroma. Light bread malt with some stone fruit notes. Light body. StoutBeerReviews (274) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Candy sweet, mild, decent consistency and minimal hop. i was expecting more malt but really this is fine. almost too mild tbh

A clear dark amber with a generous collar of fine ivory foam. It's a vibrant old-worldish malt backbone with assertive hops as well. Too fresh and resolute to feel European. A bit of nut spice and holiday tasting. The feel is crisp with a lingering mild piquancy, after a medium light body feel, slightly round, barely creamy. There's either not much here or a whole world to dive into depending on your willingness to travel. This beer has carved out a unique and wonderful place among today's converging options.

Pours a clear copper red on tap with bubbly off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of clean toasted malt and nuttiness with a light fruity ester and earthy spicy hop not. Taste is less intense than the nose, but still some solid fruity esters over toasted malts and earthy hop. Solid for what it is, seems to be the theme of the brewery. drsandman (1671) - New York, USA - SEP 5, 2017

Bottle courtesy of Dave..amber/brown pour with a fluffy white head..aroma of spices..hoppy,spicy,earthy..nice winter style ale. slowrunner77 (13204) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
"courtesy of pfoxyjohn. for a style that usually lack punch, this was a tasty sessionable alternative. rich malts combined with just enough floral hops makes this one stand out from the crowd (of reds and ambers at least). Blew away the Bells Amber I had the other day..."
