First time to try
Mmmm 22 oz. bottle
I would likely have this beer again.
This has a strong flavor that really lets you taste the beer, lacing is very nice. The head is not extensive but at least it is there. The smell seemed pretty average, or maybe that is my cold.

A very good beer and good representation of an amber ale. Bought at Sam's Club in 22 oz. bottle. Poured into a Sam Adam's pint glass. Nice head with nice lacing. Goes down easy with a nice taste. Would be a nice step-up for a mega brewery beer drinker. Highly recommend.
