3.83/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- a pretty good floral scent
Appearance- A gold to light brown color with a small white head
Taste- a strong bitter flavor, you can really taste the hops
Palate- A medium bodied beer, has a light carbonation with a very dry finish
Overall- Not a great bee for this style but it is worth a try.

4.33/5  rDev +20.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.
