Pours a slightly hazy amber, with a pretty fat head. Head retention leaves a bit to be desired, but leaves lace all over the glass as it recedes, and keeps a thin lace on top throughout. Malt certainly dominates the smell and flavor - it's much richer than most amber/reds on the market. The malt smell is a very biscuity caramel, with some spicy/herbal hops adding balance. The taste is not as bready as the smell indicates, but is full of caramel flavor. Very solid hop presence in the taste make this an excellently balanced ale. Nice, spicy hop bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is light to moderate in fullness, and slightly oily. Overall, one of the best ambers I've had. Could be a pretty solid session ale.

Nutty, slightly sweet, caramel aroma. Very nutty flavor, not as hoppy as I expected for an amber. Slightly sweet, but with a lightly bitter and earthy finish. Fairly drinkable. Floral notes emerge as it warms. Better than I expected, but u wouldn't call it an amber.
