Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a sturdy red color with a finger’s worth of sly white foamy head. Stringy lace. The aroma started off with some roasted malty nuts. Some toffee/caramel sort of cleanliness hits some bitter citrus to piney hops. The flavor takes the malts and leans them up against the bitter hops, somewhat there and somewhat not. Crisp sort of roasty malts and hop burn in the aftertaste and that hits the finish somewhat dryly. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Mild carbonation. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, even with the hop burn in the aftertaste and finish, I like this one. Seems like mostly everything fits, but also perhaps an amber ale that some may need to get used to.

Pours an amber burnt orange color with off white head. Very little lacing. Quite cloudy. Aroma is malt and biscuit. Smells pretty good. Taste seems off. Can't tell if it's hops or the yeast, but right in the middle the is an out of place bitterness that is off putting.

Overall, I probably wold not buy again.

Pours deep Amber. Thick, medium off-white head short-lived.

Smells malt, earthy, dank, Pine, Citrus and hints of alcohol.

Taste bready and light toasted malt, some fruit. Fades to a dry citrus peel linger. Medium body and smooth medium carbonation.

My first from Ale Asylum, tho I see it often. (The labels must scare me.)
This brewery takes some getting used to if its other ales are so hop heavy.

Big malt content for a mainstream amber, on the level of an IPA. Note the alcohol content -- 6.8%! Overall a fine beer, but not exactly a session brew.
