A- Poured copper, lots of lacing. Really nice looking beer.
S- Biscuits and malts, hints of hoppiness.
T- Similar to the smell, very well balanced between the malts and the hops.
M- Lots of carbonation, overall a smooth brew.
Overall this is a classic in the microbrewing industry, and definitely has a cult following. Nothing too special, but great when compared to the Bud's and Miller's of the world.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours out a clear rich amber color with a two to three finger white head. Retention is good with the ale settled down to a one finger head and lace around the glass from start to finish.
The aroma is full of lightly roasted and caramel malt. Mild bitter hops give the aroma a good balance.
The flavor is full of toasted malt. Nothing over done just wonderful drinking. There is nothing over the top. And with a light/medium body the drinking is easy.
Cheers to a great amber ale that is year around and makes a great session brew.
