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

Appearance is more brown than amber, clear, with one finger tan head which laces the glass occasionally. Carmelly, roasty, hoppy nose. Well balanced. Lots of roasty biscuit flavor, some caramel, and ends with grassy bitterness from hops. Mouthfeel is middling, carbonation and flavor is great for this american ale yeast.

This is a very balanced and easily drinkable beer. Don't come to it expecting complexity or quirkiness and you will be rewarded. The hop presence is enough to separate it from other amber ales, but not powerful enough to bring it out of the style. I could drink this all day, and at 4.4% it's one of the best session beers I've had. I just wish it wasn't so expensive for a six pack. If they ever make a 12 pack of this, I'm all over it!
