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.

Available as of 12/26/2014 in Burlington, VT.

Thick ring lace after each sip. The is decent from the tap but settles to a single layer of bubbles. Light amber color and crystal clear.

Nicely balanced between the grain and the hops. A bit of caramel and white pepper.

Thin bodied and moderately carbonated. Dry caramel flavor up front; the hop takes over in the swallow. Balanced aftertaste, though, provides a good lingering effect.

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.

a good, if generic amber ale. the pour is clear and more red than copper, with an inch of lasting off white fluff. the nose is sweeter, but also dry, with that dusty red malt more than the caramel amber malt, and a pretty good hopping. the flavors are subtle, nothing abrasive, this is a session ale all the way. the hops reflect spruce trees, and that pungent aromatic cuts some of the grainy sugars left over. fairly quick finish, sudsy carbonation and feel, and just a medium body on this. nothing to blow me away, but a very nice basic amber ale, one than could be sessioned all day, and one interesting enough to hold my attention, although this is certainly not an adventurous brew. well made, id like to try other beers from these guys.
