On tap at the brewery.

Medium amber in color, clear, with a thin white head that held at a ringlet, dotting the glass with lace. Aroma of biscuity malts, herbal hops, ammonia. This kind of fell apart for me in the taste department. Herbal hop notes soon gave way to an uncomfortable soapiness, hints of ammonia, overlaid on a biscuity malt base. The off-flavors dominated, unfortunately. Body was light-medium, mouthfeel was crisp, but again, kind of off and awkward, making it something I probably wouldn't go back for again, especially considering this was fresh from the source.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick head into my glass.

Sweet and hoppy upfront. Not as much as a pale ale or IPA but just right for the style.

Ditto on the taste. Flavorful with just the right amount of hops.

Carbonation is near-flawless with a soft, hoppy finish.

Worth trying if you enjoy amber ales.
