22 oz. bottle, best by 8/28/09; sampled 7/14/09. It pours a filtered amber hue, with medium carbonation and two fingers of fluffy white head. Mildly toasty aroma is nice, but a bit one-note. Bready and biscuity flavor, with crystal malts, some melanoidin notes, a light sweetness and some tannin astringency. The hops are leafy and mildly bitter, and the body is medium and dry. Pleasant and easy-to-drink - nice to see a malt-centered amber ale in the American arena of hopheads.
