A tamed yet flavorful amber. Has a feel of a pale ale but a nice honey malt undertone. There's a bit of a celery-type taste. A dark fruit hint; grape. It's very smooth and medium bodied. Easy going feel to it, nothing strong about it. A mild honey and hoppy scent. A lovely caramel brown color, hazy with tons of sediment.

Pours a bright copper coor with decent off-white head and strong lacing. Nose is faint malt. Body is translucent and not easy to peer through, which is a plus.

Broad, refreshing flavor with copious but unoffending biitterness from a surprisingly robust hop presence and a medium malt profile. A little metallic and tinny tasting in the finish. Mouthfeel could stand to be a little thicker but this still is a fairly solid amber ale (though the hoppiness almost makes you think it's a pale ale) with highly drinkable qualities, although maybe moreso in summer than in winter.
