Had on tap in Traverse City, from the source.

A-Always hard to judge a beer based on appearance. Almost TOO many variables when it comes to glass type, lighting, etc. etc. Anyways, pretty much what you'd expect for the category. Served in a glass mug, had a nice muddy copper hue to it. Not much of a white head but was very sticky on the rim.

S-Sweet malts forward. Very absent hop presence. Big sugar cookies, fresh baked Hawaiian sweet bread, caramel, and syrup.

T-Very, very malt forward brew. Not a balanced amber and would say this is more like a very sweet english biter or southern English Brown ale.

M-Big and viscous to back up the malt bill. Incredibly easy drinking.

O-Very much enjoyed as ambers can be almost too hoppy sometimes. Great to see someone trying the other side of the fence.
