3.4/5 rDev -4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
The label gave a minimum of information, and once poured into a Tankered offered over a finger of head with medium bubbles in a light tan color, lacing lasted for a couple minutes.
I'm calling a moderate aroma strength, nose to glass, with low malts, and medium hops giving off a floral scent.
Flavor yielded malts in the medium low range without giving any recognizable taste (to me anyway), with the hops in the medium-high area and again having a floral taste. The Flavor intensity seemed to be moderate with the hops dominating. Finishing with a hoppy mouth.
There was a clean mouth feel with good carbonation
I enjoyed the beer, and would have another
* I tend to grade low, but hopefully consistently, and tend towards maltier brews.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 7/17/2013. Pours lightly hazy orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of orange zest, lemon zest, apple, pear, caramel, toast, brown sugar, wood, light maple, herbal, light pine, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of orange zest, lemon zest, apple, pear, caramel, toast, brown sugar, wood, light maple, pine, herbal, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus zest, apple, pear, caramel, toast, brown sugar, light maple, wood, pine, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of hop and malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice amber ale. Good balance and complexity of malt and hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
