a deep clean amber in color, 2 fingers of foamy head stayed throughout the pour causing great amounts of lacing. smells of bitter herbal hops, grass, caramel. the flavor is really nice on this one.. starts off with a slight spicy grassy/herbal bitterness, followed by a delicious sweet malt backbone and finishes off with a bready yeast flavor. medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy on the lips.

an excellent amber ale. nicely balanced with the grassy hops. glad i got this one.

Pours a clean reddish to orange-ish color, with an off white head. In the aroma, a sweet malt, with notes of caramel. In the taste, sweet caramel malt and some lingering cinnamon. A small spice bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a mellow, dry cinnamon in the aftertaste. Not bad, just boring and eh!

A solid, but not great easy to drink beer. I've had six that have gone down quickly and easily and without complaints. To be honest, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot going on with the beer. It's not super hoppy (which I tend to like). It doesn't have much of an aftertaste and I may be keeping it too cold, but for whatever reason I still think its not bad. That being said, when choosing between this and Otter Creeks Stovepipe porter, I'd say choose the porter every time.
