12oz bottle poured into a pint. This was bottle #2, as the first one I got at 99bottles had a problem. Flat, lots of floaters.... dumped that one.
A- Rich dark copper color with a 3 finger loose rocky head. Excellent head retention and great lacing. Well above average.
S- Not much nose, improves as it warms. Lots of malt, sweet biscuity and husky.As it warms further a nice spice note is detected.
T- Again, very heavy on the malt, but its smooth and not overpowering. No real hop notes, but it has a nice crispness to it and a light finish, thats actually fairly wet.
M- Average body, carbonation is spot on. Does not thin out on the tongue as it warms. Very sessionable.
O- Well done malty medium bodied ale. Might be the best overall amber I have had.

Pours a transparent copper color with a substantial head of sudsy, khaki foam. Aroma is pleasantly light and fruity, consisting of lemon grass, banana, clove, and grassy hops.
The taste features a light caramel malt up front along with a healthy kick of grassy hops that make way for an equally potent kick of peppery/herbal hops. A grain husk musk shores up the back end. The peppery hops are the clear focal point here, as they practically sizzle on the back of the tongue whilst the other flavors recede. It's an interesting sensation, albeit a little heavy-handed. The mouthfeel is a little thin, perhaps passably semi-creamy, propped up by some perky carbonation.
Overall, this is an interesting and flavorful brew. The closest analogue I can muster is Domaine Dupage, although the flavors here are more coarse and strident. It's not something I would seek out to enjoy, but it's worth trying.
