look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Copper orange color; smallish head

Predominant malt aroma; notes of caramel, light chocolate and raisin; reminds me a bit of an aged barley wine

Malty in flavor too! (Didn’t know the style while drinking this.) Certainly some hops there—predominantly in the finish, with a leafy/tea-like quality—but overall it’s a malt-forward ale. Body is pillowy full and soft.

Pretty tasty overall, and a much bigger maltier take on an amber. However, it’s just a tad too sweet for me to want another one any time soon. Maybe I’ll warm up to it in the fall and winter.

Pours an as- described copper color... with a thin frothy head.

Smell is caramely and malty. Nice balance, but rather surprising with the malt-forward nose.

Taste is a little yeasty, chocolately a bit... With a lot of malt. Subtle hops balance the brew.

Overall very nice. I surprisngly big taste. Worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

S: Very malty, some breadiness, slight woodiness.

L: Clear copper with some floaters. Not much head.

T: Rich, malty with a slight woody hop backbone. Low bitterness leading to a bread maltiness, some root beer. Just enough hoppiness to finish semi-sweet.

M: Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Not bad, very definition of malty. Not really my cup of tea.

A- Burnish Copper, with a a light fluffy white head to it.

S- A light hoppy citrous combination.

T- Crispy light malty flavor. The hops are light at first, but the more I drink it the stronger the hops come through with a little bit of alcohol flavor coming through.

M- Nice carbonation and light body to it.

O- A nice wonderful light beer.
