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.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
