Color- new penny copper. Medium head.

Aroma- citrus hoppiness. Starts with a stale hoppiness, mild roasty middle, finishing with a lingering hoppiness.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted Jan. 2013.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/9/2014. Pours lightly cloudy reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, grass, bread, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with well balanced notes of dark/bready malt and citrus hops; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and citrus hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly creamy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice amber ale. All around good balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and citrus hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
