Poured from a 12oz bottle into my .25 liter Heineken glass. A semi hard pour left about 1 finger or less of head which hung around for a little while. The beer is a true amber or copper color. It looks nice.
The smell of this beer is fairly complex, with some grassy straw characteristics, a little bit of malt backbone and a nice hop profile I'm guessing is a cascade variety. The nose is a hint at whats to come, but not overpowering at all.
Giving this beer a first taste and holding it in my mouth for a second the prickly carbonation gives way to a mild maltiness, some light citrus flavors and that delicious hop finish. Everything in the nose of this brew is detectable in flavor, and the flavor is really good. No single ingredient is overwhelming the other and I might even dare say this beer is a tad light, but it's balanced and very enjoyable!
The mouth feel of this beer is pretty watery. I would say it's the weakest point of this beer and may lead to it feeling lighter than it really is. It is however not enough to detract from the big picture.
Overall this is my new go to beer. It just started getting distributed to the Dayton Area in Ohio and I am now a big believer in it. I have constantly searched for another American Amber Ale style beer since Budweiser American Ale got discontinued, and this is my new replacement! No more money for A-B Inbev from me! Would recommend.
