Poured 12oz bottle into glass. 4.4% abv

Appearance- Medium amber color and and slighty cloudy. Two finger head that dissipates fast.

Smell- Caramel malts throughout with an earthy crispness.

Taste- Grains come through heavy, followed by the sweet malt which is not as pronounced as in the smell. The herbal hop finish comes in at the end with a touch of bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Light in body, dry finish.

Overall- A decent amber ale that is fairly light and nothing too big or memorable as far as flavor goes. Still not bad; easy drinking.
