look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12oz. bottle poured into a curved pint glass.
A- a beautiful translucent amber which is heavy on the red tones. a thick khaki head is on top that sticks around well and leaves a little lacing
S- the smell is really, really nice. A balancing act between earthy, citric hops and bready, caramel malt notes. There's some fruity yeast aromas there as well
T- The taste is a bit of a letdown after the smell. Pretty straight forward interplay of a mild bready/biscuity malt, with a hint of sweetness balanced by an earthy hop bitterness.
M- Smooth, with a mild carbonation. A bit too dry for my taste on the backend. I'm driking session amber ale here, not a APA or IPA.
O- A good, but not great amber ale. I'd certainly have it again if offered it, but wouldn't seek it out vs. others such as NB Fat Tire.
