3.78/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Appearance: Poured into pint glass. Nice amger hue that reminded me of the rhyme about the sailors sky. The head was thin but adequate and stayed until the end with some lacing.
Smell: Has a strong caramel malt smell with a slight hop undertone.
Taste: A little sweet with a camramel aftertase that was a nice balance to the spicy hops.
Mouthfeel: Excelent carbonation with a beer that was a just little light.
Overall I would buy this beer again (if it was available in Michigan). Ilove the heavy malt flavor that is in balance with the hops. Most amber ales are just bitter with no malt backbone.
Serving type: bottle
