Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass

Appearance: amber in color, 1/4 inch head, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: big toasted malt, toffee, and light roasted malt--smells wonderful

Taste: Biggest taste is toasted malt with some roasted malt and earthy bitterness

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet start with a slightly bitter middle and a sweet end

Overall: A solid sessionable amber. Not a beer I would go for every day, but certainly once a month. It has a wonderful combination of toasted malt and earthiness.

Reviewed from session notes.

Pours out a copper color with a flash head that dies back rapidly to a 3mm collaring ring of fizz, minimal lacing is present. The nose contains a light amount of toasted bread and nuttiness with just a nuance of ester fruitiness. Honestly, If it were my call I would have amplified that fruitiness level by about 15%. The flavor follows suit, but also has a faint herbal and grassy hop tone on the back end. Crisp, sharp carbonation on a medium body.

Another middle of the road offering from Tyranena.

Poured from into pint glass. Color is deep amber and head is a little small.
Odor is sweet, caramel and malt all in one.
Taste is of malt at first and then comes some toffee and coffee. Finishes with a little hop bitterness, but this is more of an afterthought.
Mouth feel is light, but still has some smoothness. It also coats the tongue.
