On tap and served in an American Pint tumbler. Tarnished copper with a reddish hue against the light sparkles with brightness and holds a thick tiny bubbled lace on top. Soft and sweet maltiness with a caramel backing in the aroma and flavour. Hop bitterness balances the sweetness well without getting in the way. Creamy and smooth with hints of sweet bread. The finish stays a tad sweet and stays damn drinkable all they way through the pint.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: On tap.

Appearance: Tawny, ruby with a thin lace.

Smell: Malty. Caramel, fruit and clean herbal hop aromas.

Taste: Hoppy upfront with a clean, rind-like bitterness (slightly spicy). Bitty unsweetened chocolate flavour with a fig sweetness, followed by more chocolate. Bitter sweet finish.

Notes: Another classic micro brewed Amber.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, deep, amber-copper color with a clingy, filmy, off-white head. Nose of caramel, toffee, nut, and hints of mocha, also with a subtle roasting. Very rich nose. Flavors of rich and sweet forward, with caramel roast and toffee once again present. Light bodied, keeping the sweetness in check. More of the nut and mocha sweetness into the aftertaste. Slick, smooth finish. Solid brew.
