12 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, best before 4/27/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear pale orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, floral, grass, herbal, light citrus, light pepper, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of caramel/toasted malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, floral, grass, herbal, light citrus, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Slight herbal/pepper bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, floral, grass, herbal, light citrus/pepper, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Well balanced flavors of caramel/toasted malts and moderate herbal/earthy hop flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this a good amber ale style. Balanced caramel/toasted malt and earthy hop flavors with solid robustness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
