Pours a darker reddish amber color with off-white head. Sweet caramel malt, biscuit, and just a slight grassy hoppy piney type note on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some more malt, and a toasted note. (219 characters)

Pours hazed amber with a thin off-white head. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of caramel, some cocoa, some tea-like spice in the back.

The taste is of caramel is light cocoa, some brown sugar with a balancing spicy hop touch in the finish.

It is a light, smooth amber ale with a nice malt character. Just enough hops to balance the sweetness. A solid choice for a "block party". (382 characters)

12oz. Bottle

Thanks goes out to jwc215 (Joe) for sending me this one, much appreciated.

Poured into a pint glass, a very nice cloudy dark amber color, with some nice carbonation, which leaves a small creamy/white head, with some nice sticky lacing and a few small islands in the middle of the glass. The nose is slightly hoppy with a very nice touch of malts. A slightly nice chocolate note. The taste is very nice, slightly hoppy, malty, with some nice chocolate note. Medium body with a nice very slight dry/bitter finish. Overall a very tasty Amber Ale. A nice thirst quencher on a hot day. Thanks Joe! (609 characters)

12oz bottle of the first bottling run in 2015. Served in a snifter 4/13/2015.

A- Dark amber bodied, two finger thick, effervescent white head, good retention, a fair amount of lacing.

S- Grainy caramel, toffee, a bit of grassy, floral and even a hint of citrus.

F- Very grainy caramel accompanied by a fair amount of floral and citrus. A little peppery kick to it, which I think is predominantly floral in character.

M- Medium bodied, not insubstantial, but not thick or syrupy either, which is nice. Good carbonation, not that hard to drink.

O- Decent for the style, nothing impressive. Nice balance between the malt and the hops. (636 characters)

First beer from Karben4 I found in town. Poured on tap at Tornado Room.

A: Hazy red. Very translucent. The only light in this place was a candle on our table though.

S: Muted hops, a little sweetness, maybe vanilla.

T: Follows the smell. There's nothing I wouldn't expect from a good amber ale.

M: Light, good carbonation.

O: Very drinkable, good flavors. Went down quickly! I would definitely recommend this to lighter beer drinkers. Looking forward to more from this brewery! (497 characters)
