Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – As the name would suggest the beer pours a nice amber color with a one finger just off white head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is sweet of toffee and caramel with a little bit of a roasted bready smell as well. Along with these aromas are some lighter notes of earthy nature and a lighter cocoa smell.

Taste – The taste is sweet and bready upfront with lots of caramel and a lightly roasted bread tastes. The caramel takes on a little bit of a toffee flavor as the taste advances. Some grainy tastes come to the tongue a bit later and are joined by some flavors of an earthy and nutty nature more toward the end. Even with the earthy and nutty flavors, the sweet from the beginning remains the strongest of the tastes with it mingling well with the rest to produce a smooth somewhat wee-heavy like flavor to be left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is medium both in terms of its thickness and creaminess as well as its carbonation level; the combination making for a very easy drinking brew.

Overall – A nice easy drinking, a little on the sweeter more caramel side brew that is quite enjoyable.

Beautiful amber color with a glow, but the head isn't much at all.

Caramel malt aromas smell sweet and a little grainy. Has a cereal tone. Hops are light, and a little pine-y. Okay.

Follows the nose with sweet caramel malt notes, crisp toffee, ale yeast, and very light floral/pine hop character. Decent.

Drinks okay. Has a bit of body, too, but I'm not a fan of the obviousness of the alcohol. Carbonation is squelched a bit, but has a light sizzle.

A decent beer in a vast style. I used to enjoy two or three of these in one night, but it's lost its luster.

This brew pours a solid, opaque amber color with a fluffy tan one finger head which dissipates fairly quickly however remnants of the head stay on top of the brew until the end. Light lacing on the glass. Good carbonation.

The smell is sweat malts and peat moss, kind of like a Scottish Ale. Slight alcohol/boozy smell sweet and roasted malts and a caramel smell

The taste follows the nose with sweet the roasted malts hitting the tongue the peat moss then a caramel taste. Light piney hops on follow on the backend.

The mouthfeel is tangy, probably due to the carbonation. Creamy and slightly oily on the backend after swallowing.

Overall this is a good, solid Amber/Red ale. Very drinkable at any time of the day or year and one worth trying.

This beer is positively clear and amber with a thin white head and a cool stalactite / stalagmite lacing pattern!

The aroma is like caramel malts mixed with date bread and a tiny bit of chocolate. It's a very alluring combination!

Just as the nose the flavour is caramel malty in character, grainy with notes of dark fruit. It starts off a bit bready and grainy and mid way it evolves into a malty sip and then finishes with some earthy hop bitterness which is actually a bit dry which makes this beer fairly complex!

The mouthfeel is moderate to full bodied, a little slick, and sweet transitioning to dry. Very nice! The carbonation is moderate making this a perfect beer!

Overall I find this beer exceptional and would recommend it to anyone, even someone new to craft beer as it would be a great crossover to one that has a little bit of hop bitterness to lure them in to the world of IPA's.

A: Clear deep amber in color. Forms a smallish, creamy, light tan colored head that eventually recedes to just the faintest surface coating. No lacing.

S: Aroma is caramel malts, with a slight earthy or bready quality to it. Maybe a hint of citrus hops or maybe I'm just imagining it.

T: Taste is interesting in that the primary flavor is caramel malt, yet the malt is not overbearing. Lightly hopping provides a bit of pine flavor and grapefruit pith bitterness.

M: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Low-medium bitterness.

O: A decent beer. Certainly nothing too exciting and not exactly my favorite style. But a well-made gateway beer that should appeal to the novice craft beer drinker.

This beer tastes and smells just like Fat Tire, which is a good thing since I can't get that around here. A delectable amber with a grainy nose and a sweet malty finish. I could drink this all day ( and I just might). I have yet to have a disappointing beer from Full Pint. They might just be the best local brewery.
