3.75/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Chill hazed amber gold, some off-white head and a little lace.

S: Grapefruit pith and some biscuit & caramel...rind-y, if thats a word, with some bready malt/crackery character as well. Faint resinous pine and dankness too.

T&MF: Some floral character with hints of pine and pith and dankness and biscuit and some caramel...earthy spice too maybe. Moderately bitter without a lot of sweetness. Medium, fuller body, with a semi-dry finish.

O: Decent, but honestly a bit watery. I'd like more hop or caramel/malt presence, one or the other.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance has a dark ruby red color supporting a healthy head leaving fair lace. Smell has a sweet grainy malt aroma supported by light hops. Taste has a hoppy astringent flavor hanging more into the IPA range supported by the darker specialty malts. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

3.73/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: deep amber hue with a rather murky body. Head is a thin finger of creamy tan foam with just a little hint of an amber cast. Actually quite nice.

Smell: citrusy hop character with a somewhat sweet caramel note underneath. Simple, but nicely executed.

Taste: smooth caramel up front, followed by some slightly toasty and biscuity malt flavors. The hops then chime in, quite citrusy (more lemony than grapefruity) in character. Bitterness is moderate and quite reasonable for the style. It's actually working for me.

Mouthfeel: very smooth and creamy; I quite like it.

Overall: this is a drinkable amber without a lot of complexity, but clearly made with care.

Pours a finger on a hazy dark red colored body.
The aroma is a bold malt smell. Perfect match.
The taste is a sharp lemon bitter with a good malt balance and a long dry finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's nice and bold brew.
