Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our take on an American amber ale. Complex malt bill delivers notes of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit. Copious additions of American hops yield notes of pine and citrus.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Pours a very foamy head that is a slight tan and lasts for a while. The beer itself is a clear dark red amber with a hint of orange.

Smell:
Malty with hints of a grapefruit hoppy smell. The roasted malts dominate the smell with the hops coming in at different parts but mainly supplementing the malts.

Taste:
Similar to the smell, the malts dominate the pallate. The hops are a little bitter but it mixes well with the roasted malts. I also get a slightly caramel taste as well. The malts are very strong in this beer.

Mouthfeel:
Light body but bordering on medium bodied. Still a decent feel though.

Overall:
This a very good beer and different from a lot of ambers that I've had before.
