3.4/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: A fizzy almost 1 finger head fades semi quickly over a slightly hazy darker amber reddish brownish orange color.
N: Hmm, it has a strong ale aroma, with some dark malts, a little Belgian malts, little Belgian strong ale spices, slight candi sugar, and surprisingly a slight boozy aroma. With that some light amber malts, red malts, toasty, a little juicy fruit coctail with touch of apple and pare, and apple cider. Not to happy with the nose for being an American Amber ale.
T: Starts with some malts again, Belgian and American amber malts, a slight dark strong ale flavor too. Again more fruit, apple cider, slight pare, more spices as well, and touch of candi sugar. It even has a slight tingly booze taste. I'm starting to wonder if this was mis labelled, REALLY starting to wonder!!! THere are at least a little bit of light amber malts. A slight nutty flavor, and dark fruits a touch of fig.
M: Medium body with a slight warming booze with decent carbonation.
F: Finishes with a sweetness still but dried quite a bit, some candi sugar and syrupy. Slight warming and tingly booze. Lingering light spices and Belgian malts. Not a bad finish, but def not an amber ale.

Poured into a glass.
A: Nice deep/dark amber appearance with minimal head.
S: A mild yeasty aroma with no perceptible hops present.
T: A pleasing level of malt sweetness paired with a bready/biscuity presence.
M: An appropriate level of carbonation to pair with the beer
Overall: This is a nice example of an amber ale. It's nothing sensational, but it is a very well balanced and pleasing beer to experience.
