a better than normal amber ale, but its a pretty basic beer, one we have all tasted before. copper colored but much more rich in grain flavor. its got caramel and toffee and molasses and sticky bread all there, and its a little sweeter than i like, especially for sessioning it, but i think its well made and i like the layers. not much hops, it could stand a touch of bittering backbone. forthy feeling and palate coating, carbonated well enough and somewhat decadent overall. feels like dessert to me, lots of body and that left over sugar, almost maple syrupy as it goes down. a beer to enjoy one of, let it warm, and appreciate its bigness. thats not what i usually get in an amber, but i really did enjoy sipping it like a barleywine. the sugar content required it.
