3.7/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

22 oz bottle found under our Xmas tree (Hail Santa ! )

No discernible bottling date info. And strangely no ABV info provided on bottle. I checked Harmon brewer's web site and they have it listed as 5.5 ABV with a 52 IBU

Pours a cloudy copper body. When held up to a lamp it lightens considerably. A slightly off white head. Very little retention, some lacing.

Smell starts as a barley malt that is somewhat bread like. This quickly leads to a floral hop scent... Or is it the other way around ? There is a nice balance going on here.

Taste follows this balanced mix of hop and barley malt but the hops seem to win this one.

Feel is consistent for an amber ale.

Overall; Look could be better... But I liked this beer because of the really interesting balance. The hops and malts do a nice little duet. Not sure if it's exactly an amber ale, but whatever it is I liked it !

sweet toffee nose, loved the color, deep and cloudy..but that's perfect. seems like a good group of local folks running the place. this is an every day amber that isn't over the top but quenchable. simple but has some great flavors that make it easy to drink. wish it was in California.

A: Poured a nice light deep golden which almost presented a light coipper look, nice white cap and some lacing sticks to the glass

S: Wow. Holy hops on this Amber. Some floral and light citrus on the nose with a bready note

T: Immediate light floral and lighter citrus burst meets you immediately in the midst oif a light bready backbone, perhaps with a little bit of light caramel. The hops seem bigger because the body is not as heavy as many others in the same style category.

M: I thought the mouthfeel was light and perhaps a little to carbonated. I was expecting a bigger bodied, stickier beer

O: American Ambers can range from super sweet and bready with no lighter hops to a caramel induced bready hop bomb these days. Really no way to say this beer is wrong, by BJCP standards it hits the mark in every category. Worth a try.
