12oz bottle poured into a Greenbush snifter.
The beer pours a medium amber color, hues of copper and orange when held to the light with about 2 fingers of soft, bone colored head that lingers nicely and leaves a good amount of sticky lace behind. The aroma is of soft, sweet caramel malt, light wheat and pale grain, a bit of spice, like nutmeg or allspice, just a kiss of bitter, earthy hop spice. It's simple, soft, sweet without being sugary and has a nice rustic quality. The flavors are right in line, lots of caramel malt, brown sugar, nutmeg, wheat is nicely integrated, mingles well with the richer malt bill and just a touch of hoppy bitterness and earthy quality. The mouthfeel is nice, coats the mouth well, light carbonation, rich texture, smooth feel with a crisp finish that is just lightly dry.
Verdict: One of the better beers in the wheat/amber ale category I've tried to date. It's soft, smooth, rustic, and more importantly it's very easy to drink. This really hit the spot on a cool fall day.
