This is a good example of an amber ale. Opaque dark amber in color, delightful hoppy smell and taste, the mouthfeel is smooth and light. This would be a good beer to accompany a heavy meal. This is a tasty brew and it goes down easy. I'd recommend it for almost any beer drinker.

A: Appearance is a brown, but see through. The head is a light tan, similar to the color of sand on a beach. Head was medium sized, somewhat rocky. The head holds rather well and clings to the side.
S: Earthly, pine scented with a slight caramel scent. Not too strong, but pleasant. Slight hop smell as well on another smell.

T: Slight caramel aftertaste with a small to moderate amount of hops in there. Slight citrus flavor, grapefruit or lemon perhaps.

Medium bodied beer with a decent amount of carbonation. Decently drinkable beer, goes down easy.

I poured this beer into a perfect pint, it has a dark amber color body with a nice brown color head that lays down quickly to a nice lace. The smell is of floral hops with some pine hints. The taste is nice of hops with that give off some pine notes. Has a little sweet taste. The mouthfeel is nice and smooth and overall a very drinkable beer.

A: Amber-red and slightly hazy. Pours a khaki head that sticks around for a while and laces great.

S: Smells quite hoppy with citrus and pine. Smells really fresh and with a sweet note throughout representing the malts.

T: Tastes like a hopped up american red. It's actually very reminiscent of Lakefront's Fixed Gear, and it is, naturally, lighter in body and taste than that. Mainly showcases the hops, and it is not too bitter. Malt is just barely in the taste.

M: Light. Medium-low carbonation. Just a bit watery, but in a refreshing kind of way. This was to be expected given the ABV.

In conclusion, this beer, at 4.4%, would make an excellent session beer. It is easy to drink, but flavorful, and you can finish a six pack without toppling over. Totally respectable, but I wish the price was lower.
