Unfortunately for the appearance and aroma of this beer, I am drinking it out of the bottle as I don't have a proper receptacle for it. I will do my best, but take this review with a grain of salt for this reason.
Appearance: The beer is a bit cloudy with a decent sized head of small creamy bubbles that was every bit of half its height after a minute or so. There was a tad of lace on the way down.
Aroma: I get a subtle mix of hops and some sweet malts. There are also some defined toasty notes to the aroma that I feel is derived from something similar to a biscuit malt.
Taste: There is a good amount of hops in this beer that contribute some subtle floral notes to the beer, and the citrus is reserved. There is still a nice malt backbone to this beer that keeps the hops in check pretty much the entire flavor profile. The finish has no alcohol noticeable, but leaves some pleasant sweet and toasty malts along with the floral hops to linger for a while after the sip. Overall the mouthfeel gives the impression of a quality beer with the carbonation and residual sugars.
Opinion: I really like this beer. I am not normally a fan of Amber styles as they seem to just be a slightly darker IPA with tons of "C" hops that pretty much run the entire beer. That is not the case with this one. There is balance the whole way through and is clean enough to let all of the flavors shine in their subtlety
