Poured into a pint glass. Excited to try this Jolly Pumpkin spin-off.

A: Aggressive pour yields 2.5 fingers of rocky off-white head with great retention. Crystal clear reddish-brown liquid. Pretty!

S: Herbal hops are brightly citrusy. Faint metallic whiff is a negative. Grainy malt. Pleasant.

T: Malt forward with an aspirin-y medicinal twinge. After setting aside to warm and cleansing my palate from the raw dill gouda, the beer is far better. Very bready, sweet and caramelly. Hop ending is still aspiriny.

M: Strongly negative aspirin at first, but smooths out and is generally positive later. Aspirin does not leave the scene though.

D: I might order another. This would be the best Amber I've had if it weren't for the aspirin (amber is my least fave style and I haven't found one I like yet.) Probably won't buy again.
