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

consumed on 6/29, while I was "on Hiatus." picked up locally. enjoyed from my stillwater wineglass.

a - brew poured a deep burgandy reddish brown with a finger of head that left rather quickly leaving spotty lacing at best. rather attractive for an amber (oooh, stillwater doing an amber!!!)

s - nice caramel malts. hints of cinnammon, sweetness, and fruit. some berries in there. amber with some fruitiness. nice. you get the apples for sure.

t - oaty and grainy on an amber. the apples come out, but not as much as in the scent.

m - mouth is definitely on the creamy side for an amber. rather belgian, but kind of grainy and a bit dry in the finish. leaves a bit of a tingle.

o - overall, more than anything it is nice to see something that is not a saison coming from stillwater. i would love to see brian experiment with other styles. would LOVE for a stout. that being said, this is a pretty decent amber. the oats add a nice touch as do the apples. quite enjoyable for a style that i often find to be too malt and grain heavy. keep in mind that i'm a stillwater fanboy, but i genuinely dug this beer (wish they were bigger than 11.2 though).

Well, this beer is just punny....

Ok.

Pours a rustic amber, slightly brown. Little head, but I poured it that way, and was probably too cold right out of the fridge.

Sweet, malty aroma, but not overwhelming. This no American version of anything. Soft caramel, baked. A bit nutty. Nice earthy spice and some green pine

Flavor is lovely. Nice sweetness with a touch of spice. Earthy and caramel. A gentle but noticeable wave of bready yeast comes and goes. Finishes sweet and then dry. Very nice. I guess it's a Man Eater....Hey O

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

Appearance - murky crimson body with slight white head

Smell - caramel, apple, pine

Taste - caramel, apple, pine, hop bitterness , green tea

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, high carbonation, slightly sweet, hop bitterness at the back end for balance, flavors linger

Overall - nice amber ale that I enjoyed, having said that, I wouldn't pay the asking price of $6.75 for a single of this

Price Point - $6.75/ 11.2 oz single ( didn't pay this price, got it 'free' after buying a shitload of beer from Havana House in OH )

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- hazy deep caramel body glows below a bubble sticky thin cream head and is supported by strands of microbubbles that trail up the sides.

S- The butterscotch note leads to a sweet malt note that finishes with a caramel hint and a faint earthy oat quality.

T- The caramel sweetness blends with a herbal bitterness which lingers a bit after a dry finish. There is a slight spicy phenol that comes through as it warm along with some butter hints that are not quite diacetyl and some raw oat flavors aswell.

M- The medium mouthfeel is slightly chewy as it opens up and no alcohol heat is noticed.

O- The nice depth of sweetness is balanced by some mellow bitterness and a crisp finish is balanced by a oat fullness in the mouth.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to brown in color with a small white head. In the aroma, faint green apple sweetness. In the taste, faint green apple sweetness and a note of apple tartness. A smooth and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer small yeasty tartness in the aftertaste. A nice mellow tartness and small fruity presence, quite enjoyable.

A cellar temperature bottle is split between two glasses. I'm using a NERAX half-Imperial pint.

This si a slightly hazy amber beer, with a tan/pink foam head. Great lacing is left behind as the head recedes.

The nose is spicy and fruity. Apple, rye, and citrus hops are each mixed in.

The flavor isn't spicy at all, despite what I thought I smelled. There is a slightly dry flavor and plenty of oats. It's an interesting taste; I usually only have stouts that contain this much oat flavor. I only taste the apple flavors in the finish. Hop bitterness comes in after I swallow.

The beer is a bit thicker than average and carbonation is a tad low. A thin, watery coat is left behind, but it holds onto some good malt flavors.

This is a interesting amber. I like the oat addition a lot, and the apple syrup is unique (to me). It's very different from other Stillwater beers I've had. I recommend it!

Pours a one finger cream head that fades quickly to ring leaving traces of lace. Murky amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Light grapefruit and caramel nose flavor follows with a mix of grapefruit and caramel, light bitter finish. Pricey at $6.20 for a 330ml bottle from Tully's Beer and Wine Wells, ME.

This beer poured out looking very thick, minimal head on top with just a thin film on top. There is no real head retention or lacing here. The smell was malty and earthy, not much of a lively aroma or anything like that. The taste moderately sweet with some very muddy or earthy flavors in there following up with some oats in the finish. The mouthfeel was soft but thick, moderate carbonation with oily dry finish. Overall it's not my favorite from Stillwater but I was glad I had it.

Strong, malty aroma has an overtone of caramel and more than a hint of honey - wild mountain honey? ;) Pours a clear sepia with a nice pale tan head that leaves spotty lacing. Flavor has a nice overtone of caramel and honey, a strong malty underpinning, and a firm woody hoppy notes. Hoppy component is more woody than bitter. Smooth texture has decent body and good fizz. Tasty, if not spectacular. Love the pun!

A: The beer is very hazy amber in color and has some small sediments visible near the bottom of the glass along with a slight amount of carbonation. It poured with a thin but dense beige head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of caramel malts in the nose along with some notes of citrusy hops—grapefruit seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of caramel along with notes of citrus and hints of apples. There seems to be a balanced amount of light sweetness and light bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit smooth on the palate with a light amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather easy to drink and the appelstroop makes the taste a little more interesting but it seems that it could use more carbonation.

11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a murky amber/burnt orange color with a thin head that went away quickly. There's a decent amount of lacing left on the glass. The brew smells like sweet malt, apples, caramel and some light berries/fruit. It tastes like apples, grapes, sweet malt, caramel, and some grapefruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew more after I had been drinking it for a while. But at $5.99 a bottle, I'm not sure if I'd buy it very often. But it's certainly worth trying if you've never had it before.
