12oz bottle poured into nonic pint.
A: Pours a slightly foggy, bright, reddish amber color. Two fingers of frothy, off-white head top the beer off, leaving a great amount of lacing behind.
S: Quite a strong smell for the style; there are a lot of thick, sweet malts, as you might expect, bring forth flavors of caramel, bread, nuts, and toast. There's a nice hop balance too, with a moderate herbal/grassy flavor which is nicely complemented by light orange peel and a soft resinous flavor.
T: Sweet toffee, caramel malts, a grainy flavor, and a bit of toast balance this beer's hop flavors perfectly. Those flavors themselves are earthy, piny, and slightly citrusy, and leave a light-moderate bitterness behind. It's hard to say enough about how well Mt. Carmel nailed the balance of this beer.
M: Clean, smooth, and creamy; moderately bodied and carbonated.
O: This is a great amber ale, and may be my favorite example of the style. Love the hoppier than usual approach. My glass of this went quickly, and I wish I had picked up more than a single of this at the store.
