look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance - Pours a semi-clear bright amber orange with a half finger head, poor retention and spotty lacing.
Smell - Faint caramel notes and a touch of must.
Taste - Surprisingly deep, flavorful caramel malts upfront, with subtle notes of toffee. Citrus and floral hop characters wave by at a distance. Notes of honey and butter around the edges. Finishes as it starts, and fades quickly.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body. Carbonated deceivingly well with a sharp bite and a smooth trip down the esophagus. Somewhat creamy.
Overall - A good amber. The lack of any real hop presence can cause this beer to get a bit rich after a few, but I always look forward to drinking at least the first one.

Pale amber with thin white head.
Caramel nose with hints of pine and lemon.
Toffee apple up front with some toasty granola, then light passionfruit, pine, and resin.
Vague pine cone (earthy, woody) finish and grapefruit rind linger.
Light, slight cling, round.
Too thin, with malt over hops, which don't do Simcoe justice. Drinks like Sam Adams, which is not a compliment. Amber for Dummies.

Clear amber with a dense off white head with decent retention and lacing. The nose is a blend of caramel, cascade hops, toast, brown sugar, citrus and toffee. The palate opens moderately toasty and caramel like, but exceedingly thin and watery. Hop character is mild, with a faint bitterness, mild flavor and a touch of mineral. A touch of honey is present. The finish is dry and lacks flavor. Rather mediocre IMO.
