Newly added on tap at a local pub (Middlebury, Vermont)
Poured clear amber, not a big head. I would say the best way to describe this is mild, light, and average.
Good style rating here, (not my favorite), could use a bit more hop to balance out some of the grain/malt aroma/flavor in my opinion.
Well made beer. Look forward to trying their others soon.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Poured a clear darker amber color with a ringlet of white bubbles for a head. Light aroma, sweet malts, caramel, toasted grains, distant floral and earthy hops. Pretty decent amber ale here, mellow, caramel malts, toasted grains, mild hops for a slightly bitter finish. Light-medium mouthfeel, easily drinkable. Nothing amazing here, but still good for the style.

Sample pour at the brewery.

A-Poured an amber color nearing upon red. Thin, little seam of white foam.

S-Mellow and sweet. Caramel malt, light floral and pine hop. A couple sniffs lead me to believe this is going to be a very mild, balanced Amber Ale.

T-My nose was correct. Not faint but definitely mellow. Caramel, toasty malt. Generic sweetness. Light pine, light grass. Leaning towards the sweeter side.

M-Lighter bodied. Peppy carbonation. No alcohol sting, not much lingering aftertaste or flavor.

O-Very, very, very generic. I understand that not all beers need to be envelope pushing or specifically unique. This one is mellow and easy going and there is something to be said for that.
