Surprisingly sweet and malty for such a moderate-alcohol brew. Handsome coppery amber color with a decent head and plenty of lacing in the Saxo narrow tulip.

This has the classic Amber Ale profile, just a little lighter-- bitterish caramel taste with some herbal hop flavors. Pleasantly sudsy mouthfeel. Some fruity notes. Apple and a splash of iced tea with lemon. Some browned grain and bread flavors.

This is a more than adequate quaff with all the beery elements. Refreshing and less alcohol. I think icy cold is the right temperature for this. From the 16 oz can purchased at Sunset Beer Company in Los Angeles.

A - Very dark orange that didn't pour very much head.

S - Lots of sweet malts. Butterscotch, caramel, toffee, and butterscotch!

T - Lots of candy malts, with a bitter finish. Very odd, desert like flavor for an amber ale. Reminds me more of an english ale with the lack of hop character.

M - Very smooth, viscous body. Not a lot of carbonation.

O - Not bad but not something I'm looking to buy again.
