Dryish, and well-balanced. Ratman197 (14692) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Bomber poured a clear amber with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of fruittiness, carmel, earthiness and light graininess. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, fruittiness and light earthiness with a smooth malty finish. MartinT (9852) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005

Grassy, herbal hoppiness playing within the caramel-coated apples. Dirty yeast attempts to sabotage the subtle interplay at work.
A hint of tartness rises from the rampaging dirty yeast. Not infected, but intrinsically fishy, malt sweetness is muddled to a blur, and not much else from the dusty yeast can be tasted. Another very disappointing product from Rock Art.
Too tired to clean up behind the couch.
22 oz bottle. Deep amber/red beer. Aroma is very fruity with cherry notes and a bit of dark chocolate. Light diacetyl/butterscotch character. Flavour is fairly fruity with a soft malty sweetness. A fairly straightforward amber. Meh. czar (9004) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2012

22oz bomber: Pours copper/amber with a thin white head. Smells of yogurt, malt. Taste is tangy with elements of yogurt, cherries, some mild hoppy notes and a peppery finish. I don’t know what the hell this is trying to be so it must be a Rock Art brew. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a rustic burnt amber color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated immediately. Sly lacing sliding right on into the beer.
The aroma has a decent blend of malty biscuity/bready/toastiness. Sly piney hop bill, somewhat bitter, but mostly only to balance.
The flavor has a rich malty caramel to toffee bill. Biscuity/breadiness again. Hops set in, once again, only to balance. Moderate balance between malts and hops in the aftertaste and flows nicely into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Easy going on my tongue.
Overall, pretty good amber ale that I could have again. muzzlehatch (4952) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2001
Nice, hoppy, beautiful-to-look-at pale ale; not terribly distinctive in the flavor department, but goes down well. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2005
Clear caramel amber pour with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of alcohol and spices. Decent flavor of caramel, alcohol and spices. The body has a light to medium thickness with a dry mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Unremarkable.
