16oz Growler from Beverage World. Best by November 18, 2012. Served at around 45F.

Pours clear red/copper with a two finger beige head that leaves some drippy lacing and recedes to a light cap and ring.

Aroma starts with a bit of piney hops, some citrus, then the caramel and fruity notes of a typical Amber Ale. Good strength.

Flavor starts with some hops, herbal, earthy and citrusy, moving toward the caramel malt and fruit in the middle along with mild sweetness, finishes pretty clean, if a bit light. Minimal alcohol.

Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied, a little sticky, good carbonation.

Above-average Amber Ale with a little extra hop kick. Not as hoppy as other hoppy Ambers such as Hop Head Red or Levitation. Easy drinkin’.
