4/5  rDev +14.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: amber in color, 3/4 inch head, hazy, moderate carbonation

Smell: rich toffee and caramel with toasted malt

Taste: sweet caramel, earthy hops in the middle, sweet toffee towards the end and meadow

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, moderate-high carbonation, sweet start with a bitter spike in the middle and a less bitter end

Overall: A nice sessionable treat, nice and malty but just enough hops to give it balance. Not the best amber I have ever had but a damn good one.

Poured into a chalice, color is amber with copper edges, head is off white and very clingy but not much head.

Smell is biscuity, caramely, light toffee and some hints of grassy hops pretty pleasant.

Taste is lightly sweet with similar flavors to the scent, caramel comes through most with hints of toffee and caramel, light nuttiness with neutral and pleasant hops cleaning the palate.

Mouthfeeel is quite good, some lingering bitterness overcomes the somewhat stronger notes of caramel and toffee in the taste followed by nice carbonation.

Overall, a very solid more malty sweet amber ale with interesting notes of caramel and some nuttiness.
