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

Appearance: clear dark orange in color with a 1" head that lasts a bit. Nice lace paints the glass during the session.

Smell: caramel and ripe fruit sweetness is easily detectable by the nose.

Taste: caramel, ripe apples and plums, and a soft floral bitterness make up a basic amber ale with a decent but not great flavor profile.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lighlty crisp to start, very smooth at the finish.

Drinkability: easy to quaff this beer and a few could be had in a session.

Round 5: Likely the best brew that I tried at the brewery. A strong amber color gives a nice foamstand and carbonation. Toasty, caramel malts balance well with the abundant hop additions. Flavors of barley malt, caramel, with a mild toasty character dominate. Grassy hops balance out the malts well while adding a complex bittering and cleansing. The feel is somewhere between creamy and watery, but is certainly easy to drink. Paired well with most food that I had.

"Aggresively hopped and well balanced" is the description of this beer in the restaurant. I tend to disagree. Pors a very nice maroon to brown color with great clarity and a nice head. It is aggresively hopped but not very well balanced. The hops and the bitternes overwhelm the beer and make for a bitter tasting beer with not much body. Delivers a nice head with good lacing but the taste is not very good. Too bitter.
