Strange caramelly sweet, almost marshmallow aroma initially fades to slightly fruity, floral hops and toasted, nutty malt. Flavor reveals that same, slightly odd caramel overly sweet character, reminiscent of banana, which is countered by bready dryness in the finish. Muddled citrus, floral hops, and light resin lie underneath. Not a bad beer, but not what I expected.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On tap at The Yard House in Las Vegas. Poured into a chilled shaker pint glass.

Appearance - Nice amber color. A touch hazy. A lumpy, tan head that never entirely disappears. Very good stickage. A great looking beer.

Smell - Faint malt aroma. A whiff is citrus. Minimal nose.

Taste - Moderate malt favor (somewhat toasty). Citrus hop taste. Slightly spicy (peppercorns?). Delicious.

Mouth - Oily. Very nice carbonation.

Overall - This is one tasty, easy drinking beer. The balance between the flavorful malt and zesty (but not overpowering) hops is ideal. Imagine an English Bitters with the volume turned up a click or two. IMHO, American Ambers, such as this one, are under-appreciated.
