A 12 ounce bottle poured into shaker pint glass.

Appearance - Copper color (no surprise). Amazing clarity. Nice tan head. Good stickage.

Smell - Malt (somewhere between toasty and doughy) combined with a not-so-mild hop nose.

Taste - A toasty malt flavor that is vying for your attention. The slightly acidic hops, however, elbow their way onto the stage.

Mouth - Oily. Fizzy.

Overall - A nice beer but not a true Amber. The malt flavor was a little thin and the hops, for an Amber, were a bit much. Also, the beer is a little lacking character. Again, a nice beer but a little two-dimensional.

one of the better amber types in the game, this one is clear reddish in color with a frothing and lasting off white head over an inch tall. it has a pleasant nose of tangy hops over a robust copper malt body. much less sweet than other American takes on the style, which lends to increased drinkability for my palate. not over hopped, but certainly aggressively done, which makes this sort of a style hybrid between the more conventional amber ale and the new red ipa types. not quite on the ipa level, this one finishes much more balanced, with the rich caramel malty flavors sticking around on the palate for a little while after the swallow. the mouthfeel to me is the best feature, full bodied but drinkably dry, creamy and expansive, and well enough carbonated. not a reinvention of the genre by any stretch, but a clever Americanization of a style that probably needs a facelift more often than not. well done beer from lagunitas here.
