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!

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.
