I've always wanted to try this but have always passed it up in lieu of more predominant beers but finally got this one anyway.

A - Deep copper color with a clear red hue. Significant head with light lacing.

S - Good amount of NW hops with the standard citrus notes shining with some herbal and flowery tones that come through. A hint of the american ale yeast character and significant caramel/malt presence.

T - The flavor is much the same as the taste only better. A significant hop flavor is there at the beginning but it doesn't mask the caramel/malt/sweetness that this beer holds dear. The accompanying hop flavors make the beer seem tastier and complex but isn't overly bold or complicated. The malt and caramel sit highest in the middle with some light hop bitterness to finish crisp.

M - Medium mouth-feel that finishes nicely. Moderate carbonation. This beer is squarely in the middle of the american beer portfolio and allows the best of both worlds to escort you into happiness.

Overall, a great American Amber ale. I like the way that it has the maltiness, the hoppiness, and all without being cloying or overpowering. It isn't necessarily my favorite beer out there but if you can decide which beer you want to drink 4 of this is a great compromise. If you haven't tried it I think you should make yourself get the courage to try this flavor-packed drinking beer.
