3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours flat amber with a small and quickly diminishing off-white fizzy head, spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt. Average duration, moderate acidity and bitterness. Medium bodied, slick texture, soft carbonation and metallic finish. A nice beer overall.
Bottle at Coldfoot truck stop. Not bad but not great. A little malt-heavy. Does have some pepperiness and some hop crispness. islay (2696) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Half of a 12 oz. bottle, consumed on 8-29-16. Dry, toasty, buttery aroma. Scent of croutons or bread crumbs. Pours a clear amber with a small to moderate amount of beige head. Moderate effervescence. Good lacing. Pencil shavings in aroma and flavor. Toasty, dry to lightly fruit-sweet taste. Flavors of yellow plum and toffee. A bit mineral. Light to medium body. Lively in the palate. Overall, decent for what it is, but what it is is a boring amber ale. Travlr (24315) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2016

Growler shared with Wendy.
This was poured into pint glasses.
The appearance was a hazy amber/red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Soft gentle white foamy lacing shows around the sides of the glass.
The smell was malty rich (burnt caramel - a little bit). Light bitter grainy / earthy grassy hops came through in a burnt kind of way.
The taste was burnt malts with a mild chocolate and coffee.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. Sessionability seemed somewhat there. The carbonation was kind of under for this one. Lingering intrusive burnt caramels lead to dry aftertaste and finish.
Overall, this is one of those ambers that one puts in beef stew. But for the most part it was just an okay beer to me. Nice to try but probably wouldn’t seek out again.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Decent hops and malt flavor. Light hops aroma and light dry finish. This was a just ok brew jgb9348 (6199) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Nice amber glow with a good sized, off-white head and a light copper glow. Aroma of malt, strong nuts, good caramel and a touch of cardboard. Medium-bodied; Deep malt backbone with some pungent nutty and toasty tastes with a very small spice taste near the end and a few bits of brown sugar. Aftertaste shows mostly malt, with some nuts and a touch of bitterness at the end. Overall, a decent amber - not my favourite style, but showing some class and some character for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 26-June-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 29-November-2010. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2010
