3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ar: Very aromatic - strong initial caramel, followed by a roastiness
Ap: Orangish-brown hue, with soapy head that disappears quickly, leaving tracing on the glass.
T: Heavy sweetness. Very slight bitterness at the end. I was hoping for a better hop bite.
P: Almost syrupy, sticky sweet. Average-to-soft carbonation.
O: I’ve had this beer recommended to me a number of times - it didn’t meet the high expectations I had for it, but not a bad brew. I bit sweet for my taste - I truly feel this beer would be better balanced with addition of some extra hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz single bottle, "BEST BY 02/04/16", almost a year ago :( thanks(?) to Total Wine & More - Gilbert, AZ. Hazy reddish to amber in appearance with a small, lingering beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, light earthy yeast, toasted grain, light fruity esters and light musty hops. Similar flavor, medium to heavy, lingering sweetness with just a touch of hop bitterness. Light to medium body with soft carbonation and a smooth creamy feel. A little too sweet for me, kind of hard to finish this one. Not too bad I guess, considering its age (©2014). Tastes like a generic amber ale at this point.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Red amber in color poured with a thin white head and nice delecate lacing. The malty aroma is fruity with some Brett yeast flavoring in the taste. Medium bodied. The abv seems higher than it actually is.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper in color, no head, even after an agressive pour. Aroma is somewhat malty with a slightly sour, almost orange note. Flavor is earthy, hay-and-straw, malt, and cinnamon. Lightly hopped finish that turns rather dry. As it warmed, more fruity flavors, orange, emerged as well as a little alcohol.
