Poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass on 9/27/11

Clear, honey-brown amber with a touch of copper. One thumb of puffy foam; it starts to dissipate quickly. Tiny granules of lace follow the beer with each sip; many slide right down the glass.

Smells ok; floral hops and hint of leafy hops are blocked by a strong caramel and doughy bread combo. Hmm; perhaps this isn't the freshest. The flavor profile is set up in a similar manner. There is a decent showing of hops, but they are floral and delicate; bitterness is very low. Perhaps a subtle nip of pine here and there. Solid caramel and bread backdrop, but the hops aren't pushed aside. Around medium body with rolling carbonation. Finishes pretty clean.

This is a pleasant drinking amber ale. I'd like to try it super fresh at some point.

3.71/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance has a darker amber color supporting a healthy head leaving less than fair lace. Smell has a nice sweet malt aroma with minimal hop aroma. Taste has the same sweet malt with more of a aftertaste of hop rather than upfront. Mouthfeel is a light medium with good carbonation.
