Clear amber in color. A small head recedes to nothing in a moment. Some lacing can be observed. A nice floral and perfumey aroma backed by a subdued malt nose. This is a unique tasting Amber in that I get more hop characteristics than malt. It's not bad, but could use some more malt in my opinion. Really big dryness throughout the beer. In a pleasant way though. Hops also contribute a low amount of perfume character. A little light in the body. Maybe medium at best. Not too bad.

This copper colored ale has a heavy bready floral aroma. There is a noticeable bisuity malt profile with a pleasant alfalfa-like hop presence. Clean, smooth and tasty.

Very light body for an Amber. Basically golden. A big rocky head helps redeem the appearance. There is a slight floral hop aroma. These floral hops are balanced with a sweet, but thin carmel-ish malt. It finishes with distinct honey-like notes and light lilac petal bitterness.
Decent little sessional, though a bit thin in experience. This is a very light beer all the way around, from color to texture. More body would do wonders here. Still, it is very drinkable, tasty and refreshing. I'd love to be fly fishing out in Montana with a Wild Fly.
