Pours a light reddish brown. Not hazy or cloudy, but still slightly translucent. The head is an impressive combination of larger bubbles and foamy, cloudy looking bubbles. Good retention.

There isn't a lot of smell, but what's there is like a roasty charcoal scent. Grainy.

I was expecting something malty, but it's just the opposite. Tastes like a pale ale, or even a black IPA. Has a charcoal taste, some pine and no semblance of maltiness.

For a split second, it's smooth, and then the charred flavors and hoppy bitterness take over and continue well into the finish.

Not all that good, even for a style I don't typically care for. It's not an easy drink. My palate stayed confused even after downing most of the glass. Not something I'll drink again.

A- Pours a very rust-like amber in color with a small, 1 finger head. Retention is good and lacing is also good. Body of the beer is very hazy, with visible debris in suspension.

S- Very faint overall, with a hint of slight hoppiness coming through. Amber malts are also a evident and just a touch on the sweet side. Actually just a hint of chocolate sweetness comes through too.

T- Starts with mild hops bitterness and transitions into more malty flavors rather quickly. Hops are only a little bitter, with pine flavors being the primary flavor. Malts are grainy and bready in flavor with very little sweetness when compared to the scent. Malt flavors linger for a little bit after the drink.

M- Easy drinking, highly carbonated, and a little thinner than expected on the tongue.

Overall, just your average, small brewery, flagship amber ale. Worth trying, not worth seeking out.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle poured into a craft pint.

A- Brownish red, with some good amber highlights. Healthy off-white head. Lots of yeast suspended throughout the body. Lacing is nice.

S- Piney/floral nose, is a bit harsh. Almost, cleaner/solvent like. Just a faint toast.

T- Mild toast with earthy and floral hop tones. The scale tips more to hops, but still decently balanced. Some caramel comes out as well.

M- Pretty clean throughout. Wet finish, but a dull bitterness hangs on to the tip of my tongue.

O- Okay. A few off-characteristics. Aroma and the higher bitterness, mainly, for a standard amber.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very Copper, Too small of a white head, dissipates way too quickly, no lacing.

A hint of hops but I can't figure out what it smells like. Perhaps a touch piney.

Taste: Mellow piney. A real letdown.

mouthfeel: watery, boring

Overall: A generally piney concoction, better than average, but still disappointing.
