look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Deep reddish/brownish copper hue with a huge, bready, thick, tan-colored head and fairly fantastic lacing
S: Light citrus hops with a subtle bready malt base--toasty with some subtle toffee notes; pretty subtle but pleasant
T: Great balance of a piney, grassy bitterness with a chalky roastiness; the sweet bready malts and bitter grassy hops play well off each other
F: A creamy full bodied, chewy beer
O: This is one of my favorite ambers--just a solid everyday beer

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into a Duvel tulip.
A - Poured a nice darker red/amber hue with a thin one finger head that faded to leave a light quarter inch off white head and light lacing.
S - Aromas are heavier on the biscuit and caramel, though there is some Cascade hops tucked behind it. Lightly fruity malts, faint faint pine.
T - Taste is rather malty sweet and caramel heavy, bread/biscuit, floral hops, faint faint citrus with more sweetness towards the end. Very, very light pine bitterness.
M - Mouthfeel is a bit on the stickier side, decent carbonation, just drinks heavy.
O - Overall these guys wanted a malt/biscuit heavy Amber ale and well, the succeeded. That being said, this is not my kind of amber...I like much more hops in it. Not my thing.
