Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Copper amber ale in color with a thin, white, head that quickly dissipates and leaves a thin wispy lace.

S: Caramel and malt aromas fills the nose.

T: A sweet and slightly tart brew with dominant caramel and malt flavors. Mild hints of hops and fruits in the backgrounds.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation

O: Just an ok amber ale – nothing special or something I will remember.

Poured into standard pint glass, a creamy off white head about 1/2" thick sat on top then dissipated to a thin bubbly layer. Color is translucent amber, with light effervescence.

Smell is bready, lightly toasted malt, not much else.

Taste is bready, biscuity malt, light toasted notes. Very mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel is flat across the tongue and cheeks, light bite from the carbonation and bitterness mainly on the tongue.

Drinkability is average, something I could drink all day, but probably would pick up something else instead.
