Poured in a Dogfish Head Pint Glass
A- Nice clear, deep amber color; 1 finger white head that turned into thick foamy lace. Nice retention.
S- slight sweet hop up front, followed by malt notes. Not an overpowering aroma at all, very light scents.
T- Suprisingly mild taste for such a good looking amber ale- I was expecting more forward flavors. Malts dominate the flavor with just a hint of hops- for a pale ale, the lack of forward hop notes is disappointing.
M- Again, the look of this brew hints to a much livelier feel than is actually experienced. Tame- a bit on the flat side.
D- A malty, light to medium body amber ale that I'd only choose if the only other choices were regular lager.
