Spritzy lacing crackles away to a thin ring on the glass, brassy amber color is bright and clear. Malty aroma with some suggestions of toasted bread, marshmallow or fruit taffy, faint caramel and a little grassy. Smooth and slick medium body. Mild hopping lets the malt grab hold of the taste buds hard with a toasted grainy flavor throughout, hint of caramel and some shortbread in the back. Hops do go a little herbal in the semi-dry finish.
A stand up Amber Ale, nothing crazy as it stays focused on showing off the malt ... good balance here as well.
