Reviewed from notes, as usual.
Pours out a cloudy copper-amber color with a decent fluffy off-white head (two fingers) that sticks around for about a minute and a half, but leaves behind some really nice lace curtains. Smells of caramel malts and some zesty citrus peel. Tastes of the same as the nose but also includes a fair helping of yeasty spice as well. Body and carbonation are medium strength, texture is smooth and creamy in the mouth. Overall a really nice amber ale with a somewhat "west coast" hopping bill.

A: Pours copper or brass and very clear. Medium to full head. Fantastic retention with a fair amount of lacing throughout.
S: Herbal hops are dominated by caramel malts and vanilla spiced undertones. Faintest hint of apple can be found.
T: Interesting! Incredibly it is sweet at the beginning. Caramel is the most dominant flavor. There is some toast in the middle followed by a supurbly clean finish. Hops present but very mellow.
M: Medium to light bodied. Carbonation is less than expected and takes away from my enjoyment some. I think it would improve the lighter notes in the taste more if the carbonation was higher... but that is a personal thing.
O: I always find myself trying to pair light yet flavorful beers with foods. This beer should be your "type O" : IT GOES WITH ANYTHING. Fact: You could drink this at the tailgate or with a fantastic filet... and no one would be upset. A true jack of all trades. Completely drinkable. A must try for anyone who enjoys North Coast.... but not their best outing.
