look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Nice malty aroma, plesant

Appearance: Hazy, deep honey color. Pours with a small head. A lot of carbonation.

Flavor: Malty with a touch of hops

Mouthfeel: Medium, carbonated

Overall: An enjoyable Amber Ale, for some probable a bit light on taste but very drinkable and refreshing. I would have again but wouldn't seek it out.

Serving type: bottle

Poured into a shaker pint glass. The beer is a barely hazy amber brown. A nice foamy head recedes down to an even film, and nice rings of lacing coat the glass. The aroma is buttery, malty, and with a hint of sweet cookie biscuits. The taste profile is not far off from the aroma. There's a nice mellow buttery biscuit body, while a faint hop bite lingers in and around. The mouthfeel is a tad watery, but smooth and quenching.

Overall, I had to comeback and edit my review. This is simply a beer I could drink all day. I like it's biscuit and buttery profile a lot. Great all year long.
