Popped this baby open on a hot 95 degree Fahrenheit evening in the dry desert sun. Poured into a dimpled beer mug from a 12 oz. bottle. No best by date.
A-Poured a deep and cloudy amber brown/red color. A creamy tan 2 finger head that left trace lacing on the glass. The head eventually turned into a foamy thin surface.
S-Nutty and grainy. Some caramel malt, along with some peach notes.
T-Going in was a little wet. The initial taste consisted of caramelized peaches, grains and malt, a touch of honey in the backend. The aftertaste left a sweet, yet slightly bitter sensation. It was a pretty balanced brew.
M-light to moderate carbonation. Not my idea of a sessionable brew, but could have two (maybe three) if I felt like it. It is not a straight up summer brew, but it's really good, especially when it's so hot outside.
Overall, it's a great beer to pair with food or to have as a sessional during the cooler fall months (in my opinion). It is a solid amber ale that deserves a spot in everybody's fridge. Cheers!

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.40):
Deep copper amber with a 3cm, foamy white head that looks slightly creamy. with great retention & zero movement until you actually take a drink.
Lots of malts & sweetness on the nose with caramel too but not much hops, some earthy ones appear though. Well balanced with some floral notes with a few dark fruits. Sweet, fruity & good strength.
Sweet malts & caramel flavours that match the nose well. There is some background fruits coming through with some light, floral hops featuring as well but again it's the malts that lead the way.
Smooth & fairly light bodied, almost watery in parts but there was a pleasant sweetness throughout & a clean, slightly dry finish that has a lingering bitterness to it.
This one started very well with the smell being a particular highlight but sadly things started to fade slightly after that with the taste seeming a little watery, more so that I would have liked. Not one I'd pick up again I'm afraid.

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.
