Bottle courtesy of BeerFMAndy. Served in a Cantillon tulip.

Pour yields a brew with a slightly-reddened light copper body with a half-finger off-white head that is quite bubbly. The bubbles pop and the head fades down quite quickly. Thin collar with quite a few bubbles around the edges. The nose brings a bit of amber malt with some mild earthy tones and a bit of sweetness. Bread tones around the edges. A bit of grain husk as I continue to swirl this one.

The flavor is a bit grainy and slightly metallic. Certainly too many tannins in this one. The husk presence really comes through and is not terribly enjoyable, detracting from the underlying amber malt and breadiness. The finish is harsh and bitter. Unfortunately, something went seriously wrong in the process of this one.

12 oz bottle

A- A pretty dark copper/reddish color
S- a bit hoppy
T- Definitley hoppy, more than I expect or like from an amber ale
M- average carbonation
D- Too much of a hop emphasis, while it looks like an amber ale it drinks more like a pale ale with the relatively high hop presence, needs more malt balance

Picked up a sixer of this for the Packer/49er playoff game, wasn't a huge fan of it then or the outcome of that game, reviewing while watching the Super Bowl.

A-Significant chill haze, ruddy amber color with a thin finger of off-white head that quickly recedes to a skim.

S-Lots of hops (spicy, earthy, citrus, grass) upfront with some caramel, toasted graininess as well.

T-Hops hit you hard, like the aroma they are earthy and spicy with a lingering bitterness overwhelming the malt.

M-Medium bodied and carbonated with a lingering bitter finish.

O-Definitely a beer for the hophead, this one is too much for someone looking for a traditional amber ale. If the hops were toned down a bit this one has potential, just not balanced enough.

pours a cloudy amber with a minimal off-white head and decent lacing. caramel, dark fruit, and a vague medicinal smell in the nose..was this one a bit off? not a bad nose overall, but not sure they were going for the funky medicinal/spicy/band aid aromas. taste is nicely balanced between a moderate malt sweetness and moderate hop bitterness. soft mouthfeel and light to medium in body. i presume this is under 6% abv making it pretty drinkable.
