12oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A - Clear rich amber in color with a thick white head.

S - Crisp nutty malt aroma with a touch of floral hops.

T - Sweet and smooth malt, mostly caramel and biscuit flavors throughout. Light grassy, herbal hops lend a hand in balancing things out. Clean finish.

M - Smooth, light-medium in body, average carbonation.

O - Decent brew. I think I prefer Firestones "Pale 31" ale to this one, but it's pretty close. Good balance and drinkability.

Pours a light copper color with a light tan head of bubbles that falls quickly, some spotty lace left behind.
Aroma is lightly malty with some light fruitiness and hints of spice and a touch of vanilla.
Taste is like the smell malty some caramel and light frruit mixed with some floral and spicey hops. Overall the aroma and flavor seems more English in nature then an American Amber.
Mouthfeel is little lighter then a good amber but still pleasent.
Drinkability is ok not on par with the best amber ales but still not bad, if you like malt with some nice English like flavors could be for you.

I probably shouldn't have had this after a Dogfish 90 minute. Pretty typical for an English Pale Ale but it's not my favorite style. Good golden color with very good carbonation. I liked it and would probably like it better on draft. Definitely worth trying if you haven't before.
