Pours a clear golden copper into my standard Bell's Brewery pint glass. A foamy, antique white/eggshell head of about 3/4 of an inch forms and dissipates almost as quickly, leaving lace around the entire glass. An immediate pleasing, mild hint of citrus that yields to a light roasted caramel malt aroma. Up front, there's a bit of a sour sensation (not necessarily taste) on the tip and underneath the tip of the tongue. Smooth carbonation over the top of the tongue, but a little scrubby on the tongue's edges. Nothing is overpowering about this beer, but if there is a prevalent flavor it is something akin to caramel, sorghum, and horehound. It finishes with a trace of pine on the back of the tongue. I was disappointed by how this beer tasted, because I expected something a little more based on what I had read. Otherwise, its not a bad beer. Quite drinkable.

This is one of my favorite beers. This brew is incredibly refreshing. Though it isnt the easiest to pour from the tap, the appearance is amazing. It is a nice dark amber color. The head floats atop- an aesthetically pleasing addition. When it hits my mouth I think caramel. The toasted carmel hops are prime. It is a first class amber ale that all should experience.
