2.73/5 rDev -18.8%
Clear amber colored beer with a small tan colored head.
Smells malty and sweet with a sweet caramel scent. A bit of cake batter scent and some burned sugar. No real hops detected.
Starts out woody and fairly bitter. Bit of caramel and that is about it, tastes a lot different from what it smells.
Mouthfeel is OK.
Overall a fairly dry 4% Utah beer.

A: Rich copper color. 1/2 finger head. Faint, wispy lacing that dissipates
S: Great aroma to this beer. Huge malt nose. Rich dark toffee with some slight oak.
T: The taste left a bit to be desired after the excellent nose it possessed. The toffee was certainly there, but it was rather simple. A tiny bit of good bitterness to finish it out.
M: For my preferences in an amber ale it was a bit over carbonated. The mouth feel was also a bit thin.
O: Certainly a decent example of the style. However, I would probably not seek it out and can find better examples in my area.

I have to admit a bias here. I had this on tap at powder mountain after a long day of learning to snowboard. I don't know how this would taste as beer number 3 at the brewery, but let me tell ya, in pitcher form, with a hot chicken wing, there is absolutely nothing better after a day on the windy slopes. pours nice caramel red with a vibrant creamy textured khaki colored head as high as the pour is aggressive. the nose is dry red malts and a gentle honey sweetness. flavor matches the nose, and is really refreshing for a darker and sweeter beer. down easy, low abv as per Utah law, and a dry finish with far less sweetness than the standard American amber. good carbonation and a creamy medium body. it washes a chicken wing down clean, infinitely sessionable. no beer I can name could have satisfied me in this way after getting beat up all over the mountain. yum!
