3.53/5 rDev -1.7%
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a light brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, some hops and some fruit.
T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of caramel, citrus and some other fruits. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid beer worth drinking for a while.

3.61/5 rDev +0.6%
A: Bronze with a slight redish tint. Light tan head with a medium carbonation.
S: Spice and wheat bread. Toasted seeds like cashew and walnut and malted barley. A dash of metal and aluminum.
T: Sweet brown sugar notes and tangy finish. New wood, maybe cedar. Rich and nutty with a cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Mellow and smooth and light for an amber with still a well rounded palette of toast and grain.
M: Thin in a cool and refreshing way. A bit of a steel aftertaste mixed in qua woodiness that lingers long and dry.
O: Long time since I've had a good amber.. Or any amber in fact. Very light and drinkable for an amber. Full flavor without the overly hoppy flavor. Not bad for a beer I bought on clearance.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.
The beer is a dark caramel copper color. A cream colored head recedes to a chunky film, with good webby lacing. The beer smells deliciously of malts, bready yeast, and sweet caramel. The taste is also bready with a glaze of sweet caramel over it. Light grain notes fill out the back end. The mouthfeel is medium bodied.
Overall, a really great tasting amber ale with all of the great amber characteristics.

3.5/5 rDev -2.5%
Appearance - Pours a semi-hazy, rusty orange with an off-white, finger width head. Average retention. Lacing is spotty at best, with little stick.
Smell - Moderate caramel aroma. Hops are well hidden, but faint notes of floral and citrus peaks through as the beer warms.
Taste - Caramel dominates the flavor profile from start to finish. Hops play a small supporting role, staying mostly subdued, but do well to keep this from becoming too sweet. There is a subtle orange note sitting behind the caramel near the finish, and that's basically it.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Smooth going down.
Overall - This beer's a one trick pony, but that trick is pretty good. Caramel bomb. I wouldn't miss this if I never had it again, but I wouldn't regret buying it either. Nice session beer candidate. Reminds me quite a bit of Mad River Steelhead Extra Pale Ale, only not nearly as good.
