look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a standard drinking glass.
Appearance: Medium Amber in color, slightly hazy with orange hues. A sticky, off-white, 2 finger head after a semi-hard pour. The head disappears a little quicker then I'd like. The lacing isn't extremely thick, but it's there.
Smell: A sweet, somewhat toasty, malt aroma. A bit of grain and biscuit, as well as some floral hops and a slight scent of alcohol.
Taste: A well balanced combination of sweet toasted malt, caramel, and a substantial bitterness. Has a mild hint of citric hop flavor and a dry finish.
Mouthfeel; A crisp, slick, and chewy mouth-feel. Medium bodied.
Drinkability: I find this brew to be VERY drinkable.
Note: There are allot of good Amber Ales out there, but I consider this to be one of my favorites. It is extremely reliable and consistent with it's quality. Whether you are at a BBQ, a party, or just relaxing at home enjoying a couple beers, you can't go wrong with this one.
