2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled on draft at Homestead this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet golden fruit, apple and pear. The flavor was sweet golden fruit, apple, pear, yeast, faint bitterness and slight astringency. Long finish. Medium body. Meh.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was an amber color with a finger’s worth of white to off white foamy head. Moderate speckled lace.
The aroma had some toasted caramel and toffee malts with a grassy and light citrusy bitter hoppiness.
The flavor balances nicely between the toasted malts and hops. The balance seems to flow nicely between the hops and malts on into the aftertaste and leads 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 feels good on my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a worthy Amber ale of coming back to and wouldn’t mind having with it’s respected food.

Pours a clear dark amber to light brow in color with a thin white ring. The taste reminded me of a Brown ale. Somewhat malty and slightly roasted but not too overpowering. Rather thin and not full bodied. OK, not bad but just not that good.

on tap at the brewery. I found this to be a pretty standard amber ale; malt forward with caramel malt notes, and pretty light bodied and quaffable. Not particularly interesting for me.

Lucky timing this was on tap the day we got there to sign up for BR3 allotment. Pours a clear amber color. Slight white head. Aromas of wet grains, light hops, wet leaves. Pretty mundane style but well done. Pretty much your everyman beer. Crisp taste. Medium body and medium high carb.
