Picked up a couple of single bottles of each Mt. Carmel brew at my local (Biggs) Cincinnati grocery store that sells mix and match singles.
Pours copper with a thin tan head that subsides to mostly the rim and stays present during consumption.
Aroma is sweet and bready malt. Expecting more from the aroma based on the label's claim to "aroma of fresh hops." A mild musty, dirty sock aroma that may be attributed to said hops.
Taste is tarnished by aroma. If I keep my nose closed, the taste is a fairly pleasant sweet and malty combination. Can't detect the "complex hop finish" as described on the label. Perhaps a bit too much malt is overpowering the hops in this amber. Finishes clean and a bit dry for being malty which improves taste and drinkability.
Other than the problems with the aroma, this beer drinks ok
