12 ounce can chilled and poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a light amber color with a rich and long lasting head with significant lacing.

S - Floral hops with malt background.

T - Very floral with a good malt finish.

M - Good carbonation level - very neutral finish.

O - A decent enough amber ale, but a tad on the high side as far as price for what you get.

Review taken from notes: Spring 2013.

12 oz silver and black can with orange artwork. Not a bad label and design, but definitely not spectacular. Maybe a bit too much going on yet in a simple way make for a straightforward design. But hey, what's inside matters. Lets find out. Poured into a standard American pint glass.

A - cloudy amber with tones of a rusted rose brown body color. Fluffy head on the pour quickly turns to a small ring of lace leaving a bit of stick, but nothing extreme.

S - roasted malt. Grain. Slightly Burnt yeast. A nice nutty character and a biscuity style malt backbone with some small bitter undertones.

T - sweet caramel. Grainy bread notes. A tiny hint of dark fruit paired with some Dark malts. A nutty presence underneath its amber style yeast. Nice finish.

M - medium bodied and a pretty nice texture of thickness. Not as thick as I'd prefer but still enough to make a very smooth amber ale experience. Nice flavors and a tasty finish.

O - well done from West Sixth. Glad to see Kentucky craft beer taking that next step. West Sixth are definitely producing some quality brews and this is worthy of a try from anyone. Very enjoyable.
