Maybe I got a bad batch, but was very underwhelmed with this offering from Lake Placid Pub & Brewery. Poured a dark amber with a thin head. Smell was malty and of barley, but the taste was flat and somewhat stale. Would try it again just to see if its usually better than this. Judging from the quality of the brewery and also its other offerings, I'm sure it's usually better than this.

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.
