look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours dark reddish amber with a white, lasting head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of light toast, caramel/nougat and a hint of citrus.

The taste is of sweet caramel with a touch of resinous pine and juicy citrus in the finish.

It is velvety, creamy smooth. It has the body of a smooth, "sessionable" ale. Which this is, so it works very, very well!

This is a nice amber ale. It leans more malty than hoppy. The caramel isn't too sweet - well, balanced - and certainly one that is easy to drink. A solid choice for a caramel-ish, but not too sweet, session ale!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours amber in color with a half finger off white head that has decent retention.

Smell has some good lightly toasted malt that has some caramel and slightly nutty notes. Hops are spicy, slightly herbal and crisp.

Taste has some light nutty and caramel malt flavors. More herbal hops can be detected in the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a crisp refreshing finish and moderate carbonation.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler

A- Rosy amber color, clear. Light tan head only stays around with some agitation. Only a little lacing.

S- Caramel malt character with dull earthy hop tones.

T- Mild roasted, maybe even a little burned straw flavor. Very mild earthiness in the hop department.

M- Medium body. Bit of a drying finish.

O- Not great. A little generic tasting, and frankly, bland.

This was a very enjoyable, solid session ale which I had on tap at Milwaukee Ale House in Milwaukee.

Copper amber, it had a medium off-white amber head soon thinning to a foamy ring, wisps, a little lace.

Aroma was nice fruity-caramelly maltiness with hints of woody herbal hop.

Taste had the aroma elements, nice caramelised maltiness, toasty, with hints of dried fruit, light zesty-spicy woody-grassy biterrness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice, dense, off-white head. Sweet, soft, spicy aroma. Amber-esque, burnt umber color. Starts off with a floral hoppy bitterness and a touch of caramel. Builds into a low-medium bitterness as a malty biscuitness comes through. Finish is floral hops with sweet malt. Good and carbonated; adds a little bite to it.

I like this one. It's a nice, relatively balanced amber; not too malty, not too bitter. I'm normally not huge on caramel notes in ambers, but it works well in this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is beautiful amber/copper. A finger of buttery, light tan head leaves a ring around the edge and a skim of foam. It features a little chill haze and there is quite a bit of carbonation.

Smell: Rich and malty. It kind of smells like a 3 Musketeers bar. Milk chocolate, caramel, toffee, and very subtle hints of cherry.

Taste: Not so much like 3 Musketeers, which is okay. (I do like 3 Musketeers, though.) Toasted malts are complemented by caramel, toffee, earthy hops (which offer an adequate, beery bite), a hint of cocoa, and a hint of lemon.

Drinkability: Very pleasing and tasty, and also very easy drinking. It certainly is a good beer to toast with.
