Maryland

3.7/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

An off white head is formed barely managing a finger of size. Body color is a hazy red dull amber, with some very faint small rising carbonation on the middle.

Nose smells like a sort of Munich malts, Oktoberfest beer. Slightly rich, but a little subdued. Faint airy hop but just barely.

Palate brings a stinky malt crispness. Almost getting into Irish ale tasting territory, very interesting. Very prickly feeling in the palate which is a bit jarring. Stinky tacky aftertaste, sort of gamey.

What an interesting amber ale, somewhere smelling Munich and tasting all Irish, and feeling like a crisp lager. However, it isn't so interesting that I would want to have it again.

Tennessee

3.64/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Tasted On: 07-07-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Gift from a friend

A: Beer is clear and copper in color, with a big head of offwhite. Shows very good head retention and a nice lace.

S: Aromas are malty — crystal and caramel malts, plus wheat bread. Smells like when I am steeping grain

T: The taste is semi-sweet from the malts, but there is also a dose of earthy/woody hops to add a light to moderate amount of bitterness.

M: Body is medium and the beer finishes with a balance of both hop bitterness and caramel malt notes.

O: Nothing too flashy here, but a good, balanced ale.

Thanks to Kirk for sharing!
