On-tap at the Harrisburg Brewers Fest. The first beer from South County, a dry-hopped amber. Welcome to the scene!
A: The ale is appropriately amber, a fuller brown hue that is still translucent.
S: The nose has citrus hops, pungent, alongside a rich malt backdrop. Caramel and a mild smoke aroma pair up nicely.
T: The smoke is no ploy, it lasts into the taste. The smoke isn't at the smoked bacon level, it is content just to add a deeper flavor. On top of the smoke, the malts add toast and caramel. Mid-sip the hops are mild, slowly building up to a bolder citrus finish. The dry hopping is a smart idea, a crescendo for each sip. The hops aren't at an imperial amber level but they do register as an added bonus.
M: The mouthfeel takes a nice twist with the smoke, dose of sweetness amongst the toasted caramel base. A near-sessionable amber.
