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.

A: pours a clear deep copper with a light tan head. Not terribly persistent but OK lacing

S: Spicy, floral hop, not too strong. Good caramel base with some cookie and faint banana bread aroma.

T: Nice sweet malty profile with a low amount of earthy bitterness. Some citrus zest with again, a faint banana flavor. Bright malty beer nice and bready in the finish. Less hop flavor than I anticipated. Almost Belgian like.

M: Solid medium body beer with a wee bit of citrus tang on the tongue. Smooth and low to moderate carbonation.

O: This is a nice beer. It doesn't strike me as a prime example of an amber ale, but something different. I expected a bit more hop flavor and aroma. I'm wondering if this beer may possibly have been on the shelf at the beer store a bit too long. It's a nice beer overall but I'd like to sample another to see if it's age or not.
