3.63/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Lives up to its name, pours transparent copper color with healthy white head.

Smell: Nothing specifically interesting about the smell. Although the beer is not particularly hoppy the hop smell is what I noticed, maybe some citrus as well.

Taste: The malts are more noticeable than the hops but well balanced. Smooth and a little sweet with some bitterness at the end, maybe grapefruit-like.

Mouthfeel: Again a very smooth drink, not particularly dry. Enjoyed the carbonation which lightens the beer's mouthfeel a little.

Overall: Good overall, not great although in fairness the red/amber ales are not my favorite beer style. Not sure I'd go out of my way to buy these but good overall.

12oz bottle with Imperial Nonic glass
*Notes from 05/26/13

A: Clear copper body with some lively bubbles forming rocky peaks of khaki tan stuff on top. Real impressive hang time with some super sticky lacing work down the glass.

S: Aromas open with a firm waft of bready malts accompanied by a brown sugar sweetness. There are some light undercurrents of citrus fruit, pine, and herbal spice. Getting mostly bread and brown sugar here though. Nothing to fault but not particularly stand out.

T: Flavors open up much the same with a more pronounced bready malt base and brown sugar likeness. Not overly sweet but not much else going on flavor wise. There is a big herbal hop spice with a light dusting of pine and citrus however it is secondary to the malt character. There is a moderate level of perceived bitterness and alcohol is totally masked here. Nothing too stand out but still a nice little beer.

M: Moderate to low fullness with some light frothy consistency and a bit of drying crisp in the finish. Overall on the watery thin side with a relatively clean finish.

D: Nice little amber ale. Nothing very stand out but it does provide a solid quaff.
