Pours clear amber with two fingers of white head. Some lacings. Aroma is like bread dough. Taste is yeasty sweet malts with enough earthy hops to balance the flavors. Mouthfeel is fine though a bit over carbonated. It has a slight bitter dry finish. I made the effort to find a fairly fresh example and was rewarded for my effort. I have had less stellar examples of this beer and can usually trace it to poorly stored or just plain old product. Not the best American Amber I've had but one of the most unique. Very sessionable if you enjoy the taste.

A - Clear, dark amber. Persistent foamy white head leaves wonderful lacing.
S - Bready with a hint of hops.
T - Nuts and wheat, with some caramel malts.
M - Crisp, light body, high carbonation.
O - A little too yeasty for my tastes, but decently balanced. It has its place.
