4.05/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Took a growler back to the camp site

Poured caramel with 2 gingers of sand colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Caramel with piney & citirc hops

T: Caramel & moderate piney hops up front. A little nuttyness sneaks in as this warms. Finshes with malt sweetness & great citric & piney hops, plus some dryness

MF: Medium bodied & moderate carbonation. Great balance

Drank very easy for the ABV. Wanted the chille beer, but they just ran out, this was a pretty good plan B

Serving type: growler

4.08/5  rDev +16.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: This is the first time I've seen any six packs from Amicas. They also appear to have redone some of their branding, with a standardized logo now. Label is simple with a reddish brown color to it, no date but the ABV is clearly marked.

Appearance: Typical amber - clear reddish brown, average head fades at a medium rate, just a slight lacing.

Smell: Grassy hops, a malt aroma that leans towards biscuits.

Taste: Highly drinkable - a nice medium level of hops, just enough malt flavors to keep it balanced.

Overall impression: This is a fairly simple beer, but its highly drinkable and certainly went well sitting around the campfire after a visit to the brewery.

Serving type: bottle

2.3/5  rDev -34.5%

I've had this twice now--once just under a year ago and then again three days ago--and I've been duly unimpressed both times. What looks to be a decently built amber lacks both a bouquet and a flavor. The malt presence on the mouth is slight, and, taken with the lack of a bitter backing, makes for a watery and light bodied mouthfeel. In the future, I think I'll only stick to re-tasting this if someone else has taken the task of ordering a pint.

What I can say about this beer is that it probably is a good match for some of Amicas lighter, delicious pizzas. Nonetheless, I'll stick to Amicas other, better brews.

Serving type: on-tap

The beer pours an amber color with a creamy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a light pale and crystal malt scent along a slight hop aroma. The taste is good. It has a smooth pale and crystal malt flavor with a dry, bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a good amber ale. I wish it had a little more malt aroma, but it still drinks well.

Serving type: on-tap
