12oz can poured into a New Belgium tulip.
A: Pours a crystal clear amber red with touches of deep honey. Head is thick, creamy and stands for quite a while at about an inch an a half above the beer, leaving behind a nice lattice work of lacing on the way down into the glass.
S: Decently malty with touches of fresh baked cookie and biscuit but with a healthy amount of hops tossed on top which adds a earthy and piny spiciness to everything. Seems quite fresh coming out of the can.
T/MF: Loads of cookie and biscuit sweetness which dovetails into an earthy/nutty hop bitterness midway through then finishing soft, slightly jammy finish.
D: An unassuming beer, delivers what it promises with a good balance stuck between malt sweetness and hop bitterness. A good beer, just wanting more. I guess I am spoiled a bit and can't appreciate the subtleties this beer has to offer but I knows what I like and this beer could stand to have a bit more of that.

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.
