I think I had this a few years ago on a ski trip, and I remembered it about how it is today, a good amber. Some ambers are much prettier, but thisis still nice. A little cloudy and thin looking. The aroma is faint and nothing special. The taste is inoffensive. It does not taste too sweet nor too hoppy, actually, more hops and more malt would be nice improvement.

The beer is well made with no defects, and the slight bitterness and lack of excessive sweetness would make this a good session beer.
