3.45/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a deep ruby almost brownish color with a two finger tan colored head. The head fades over a few minutes to give a light level of lacing.

Smell – The smell is heaviest of roasted malt. Mixed with this aroma are lighter notes of toffee and some coffee.

Taste – A sweeter roasted malt flavor meets the tongue. The sweetness is of toffee while the malt is of roasted barley. In the middle these flavors are met with mild dark fruit flavors. Toward the end some light pine hop notes enter the flavor and bitter it slightly with it helping to balance out some of the sweetness nicely.

Mouthfeel- The body of the beer was creamier then I would have expected with a carbonation level that is quite average. The creamier body really suits the roasted flavors quite well while the carbonation creates just the right amount of tingle for the sweet flavors.

Overall – Nothing too spectacular, but not a bad session amber.

Poured into vintage Old Detroit pint glass. Pours a clear reddish amber with light lacing. Semi sweet, bready on the mouth. Malt flavor wit slight coffee under tones. comes through in the middle with very slight bitterness. Goes down fairly easy. Not bad but wouldn't seek out.

I like this amber ale, because it is a major shift from the normal ambers made here in the united states. this reminds me of maine beers zoe, brick red with a creamy khaki head and superb lacing. a lovely full bodied texture with a certain density that's not common. furthermore, its incredibly full flavored from the red malts, but doesn't retain any sweetness at all. no caramel, no toffee, no candy, just good fresh grain in healthy proportions. hops are finishing only really, but add a nice crisp bitterness akin to their ipa, but not quite as aggressive. similar varietals though, and a fairly complex brew all up. the feel is really nice, with prickly carbonation and enough oomph to be a great fall brew as well as summer. looking forward to drinking a whole lot more of this while I am back east for the next few months.
