From note:

P: Deep brownish amber with translucent sides. Hazy with no head or lacing.

S: Huge robust floral hops, touches of wood, and a great roasty malt base. Floral potpourri is very assertive, figs, raisins, and apricots are also present.

T/M: Roasty malt with a perfume essence, straw, and subtle citrus bitterness. Taste follows the nose but is rougher and not as smooth. Slightly chalky with a semi dry finish.

O: Nice and hoppy the way I like my ambers. It was slightly rough but at the same time it didnt take away from the flavor. The flavors are complimenting and deliver a great product.

On tap at Grandad's. Pours a solid amber with a foamy head that dissipates fairly fast. Decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is predominately spruce and pine, with just a touch of malt. Not surprisingly, that's exactly how it tastes. The blend of hops makes it reasonably interesting. Nice bitterness. Medium mouth. There's not a lot of carbonation, so the aftertaste hangs on the tongue well. This is my second time to try this one, and it really reminds me of an IPL like Widmer Bros. Hopside Down. This isn't spectacular, but just a solid brew that always hits the spot.

Pours a rich amber color with a white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy in a floral nature and definite caramel. In the taste, a well balanced ale with caramel and citrus. Fair bitterness and solid balance. Medium bodied, well carbonated ale. Overall, a pretty good American Amber.

Deep red, near crimson, with a minimal tan head. Caramel, oily hops, apples and honey to the nose. A good mix of sweet and bitter to the tongue. Has some faint caramel, more oily hops and distant light fruits. Light bodied and arguably weak. Not too dry and even has a bit of creaminess to it. A good one from Marshall that suits the style fairly well.

A zesty red ale with deeply caramelized malts, citrusy hops, and slight estery fruit flavors abounding.

Revival starts with a very deep brown/burnt amber color and with nearly opaque haze. Much darker than usual for the style. But the beer constructs a sturdy, rocky, and billowing head that's very stubborn. Sticky lace adorns the glass with a variety of patterns as the beer falls. A very verbose appearance.

Strong caramel malts take the proportion of toffee, heavy bread crust, light toast, and soft melanoidins all shape the elements of malt that rise first to the nose. Nearly equally as strong are the hops; as strong citrusy rebuttal delivers a mix of red grapefruit pulp and citrus rinds, mixed with the flavor of pine, fresh grasses, and a bite of wood. A sharp flavor of plastic makes its way into the flavor profile just before finish, causing the beer to be much more harsh in taste than it should be.

Medium-full bodied, the beer has an unwaivering texture that retains its tooth and creaminess very late into the taste. A malty-dry finish never reaches full dryness but seems to evade the sweet feel. As hop bitterness increases, so does the harsh bit and astringency of the phenolic compound that causes the plastic taste.

A solid beer, but that plastic taste and harsh flavor has too much of an impact on the finish.

Thanks BlueOkie!
