3.83/5  rDev +5.5%

Appearance: Amber-tan, medium hued body, lightly hazed with a sporadic, sudsy, off-white head.

Smell: Atop the foundation of caramel edged, toasted bread maltiness is hop scents smelling a tad woodsy, a bit spicy, with some pleasant citrus fruits notes.

Taste: Toasty malts, with a sweetness of caramel with maybe a hint of brown sugar. Faint apricot. Spicy, citrusy hops with some grapefruit showing. Medium bitterness - it doesn't knock you over, but, it is enough to provide for a semi-dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Neither too sweet, nor too bitter, it's a well-rounded amber ale.

On tap in Brookhavwn GA
Light brown with s good head. but limited lacing.

Flavorful for style, particularly with regards to the malts.
Èxcellent sweet/bitter balance. Near even malt/hops balance.

Medium body and carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

O: recommended version of style.

4.31/5  rDev +18.7%

Aroma: Okay, a bit uncharacteristic for an amber, but MAN the nose on this beer is outstanding. A wonderful blend of citrus and earthy aroma hops with just enough malty aroma left over.

Appearance: Pours copper in color with a nice persistent white head.

Flavor: The overwhelmingly delicious aroma of hops is a perfect compliment to the moderate-mild malty/sweet taste to this beer. It is quite smooth and does not sit or taste heavy. Slight notes of caramel in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-Medium body, with moderate-high carbonation leaving it a bit dry.

Overall: An outstanding amber ale, highly recommended., will drink again.
