Enjoy By 4/6/14. 22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a beautiful transparent copper with great clarity; fluffy white head that slowly fades leaving great lacing and retention. The aromas are full of caramel malts. Lots of bread. Hints of toffee and butterscotch. Some corn is in the mix as well. The flavors are crisp and refreshing. Very earthy. Slightly sweet. More caramel. Healthy amount of malts. Hops are very subtle. More corn. More butterscotch. Mouthfeel is awesome. It's medium-bodied but creamy and fluffy with active carbonation. It's extremely smooth and very drinkable.
This is a great example of a traditional amber ale. It might not be adventurous to some, but the craftsmanship takes this one over the top. It's very "food friendly" too.
