A great looking beer that when poured from the bottle gave me a 2 finger head and looked just overall appealing. The smell I got from this beer was malt, spices and a small amount of hops.

After I waited a few minutes for the head to subside( only going down to 1 finger head) I had the first drink. The usual blast of malt i expected from an Amber was not there but had a enough to earn its name. I noticed that as I drank the lacing would ring at the level of the meniscus. WHAT A BEER SHOULD DO!
The lacing was the best I had viewed in some time. I would like to do this beer again as I did have a small cold going, but was still very enjoyable.

This is a very nice example of the style. Aroma is lightly toasted malt. No hops or yeast. Color is a beautiful light amber. Sparkly. Medium light body wit moderate carbonation. Taste is grainy rich and malty while staying light and not overly sweet. Finish is a little sweet - should be a little dryer. Refreshing but not boring.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Had several of these while in New Orleans this week.

Pours a nice clear amber colour. 1/4 inch head on the pour recedes to a thin cap. Spots of lacing here and there.

Aroma is mostly malty. Hints of caramel and biscuit with the odd whiff of herbal hops.

Flavour is pretty much on cue with the aroma. Malty and a little nutty with caramel and just a touch of hops.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty easy drinking.

This ale is decent. I got tired of it though as I had several of these at a variety of receptions this week. Worth a try
