Poured a nice amber-orange color with little chunkies floating around the glass. Actually had a cascading effect as it settled in the glass to develop a nice two-finger head nice ring laces going down the glass.

Smell is slightly sweet, with bready malts and fruit.

Taste is the same. Bready, yeasty, fruity hoppiness and good balance.

Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, slight bite at the end, and good carbonation.

All around good amber ale. I would definitely revisit this one in the future.

Appearance is murky, light brown; like apple cider. Head is light and oil-slick. The lacing is nice.

Nose is sweet malt, light hops, apple cider, mild spice, and light citrus.

Taste is smooth hops with a light kick, lightly toasted malt, and apple.

Mouthfeel is a good amount of carbonation. It is very easy-drinking and very refreshing.

Overall, a tried-and-true American ale.
