Nice copper color with decent head and not much lacing. Aroma is very light and bready. Taste is good, yet light. Get a little toast, a touch of citrus and some hop bitterness. Fast, dry finish which does not linger long. Not a bad brew from a great brewer

A sweet amber ale. Not very hoppy.

Used to think this was very good beer until I eventually more complex IPA's. Still, in its place a good beer

Long time since I had this.
Amber copper color with an aired head with short retention.
Nice aroma with honey and mild spices.
Flavor with lots of caramels, hints of toasted malts, a mild tangy citrusy, some spices and floral hops. Mildly dry aftertaste.
Medium body with mild carbonation.
Very balanced and easy to drink amber ale, on the mild side, but still flavorful and not boring. Though it could be a bit less sweet.
