Not one of my favorites. This beer pours a reddish brown color with ok head. This beer overall is weak in flavor,. Wanted more hop bitterness but got a mild malt bitterness that wasnt that great. Seems a little watery and lacks the robust flavor of a good amber ale....Won't revisit, sorry

Had this on-tap at the Green Parrot in Virginia Beach. Served in an ice-cold pint glass so the head was fairly suppressed. Nice reddish amber color and some filmy lacing on the glass.

Aroma is fairly mild, some hoppiness and more than a touch of Belgian-type yeast.

I had this with fried oysters and onion rings and the flavor worked well with food. A bit more hoppy than malty but there were elements of both. The yeast thing I noticed in the aroma was more prominent in the taste. Seemed to work well with the other flavors and added a bit of novelty to the taste.

Mouthfeel was crisp with a nice touch of bitterness.

I would order this one again.

a - clear amber
s - slight, slight caramelized malt. not much aroma at all to be honest.
t - caramalized, but actually almost toasted malt flavor. its not dark, but toasted malt flavor is evident, and this doesnt taste much like other ambers(bells would be my comparison here)
m - light bodied.
o - pretty lame, nothing stands out here. im a little confused on the style here too.
