Pours a light off white head. Color is a hazy orange... not amber at all. Leaves a good amount of lacing.
Smell is of hops. This is a very distinct smell, one of which I haven't smelt before. Kind of fruity. There is definitely a caramel taste to this beer, along with the floral hops that are heavily present. For only being a 5.2% beer, the presence of alcohol is way high. I have drank much higher and not tasted the alcohol.
Mouthfeel is great... very, very smooth. Mouthfeel is definitely the best part of this beer. Light bodied.
I have had this on tap and it is by far way better. On tap, the color is actually amber. Overall, I wouldn't buy this if I was looking for an Amber... it just doesn't seem to fit the style very well. However, I do enjoy it, because of all the hops.
