Nice copper color with a good head with decent retention.
Light sweet malty aroma with floral hops.
Malty sweet taste with notes of caramels, earthy hops mostly used for bitterness, not so aromatic.
Dry aftertaste with a long lasting medium bitterness.
Medium body with low carbonation.
Ok amber ale, a bit too much on the sweet side. Good for malty lovers.

I enjoyed this beer from a bottle poured into a clean short beer glass. The color was a vibrant tawny brown with a off-white medium head. Rich caramel notes, and a great balance with toasted barley make for a very tasty ale that could be enjoyed with a variety of dishes in any season. The finish of this beer can be nutty but turns into an almost sweetness.

This poured an orange tinted amber color with light foam that rapidly dissipates. It has a sweetish aroma with some hazelnut notes emerging from the malt profile. (Hazelnut was on my mind as I had the Frangelic Mountain Brown a few days prior.) I get some orange notes from the hops and a honeyed sweetness. It’s an easy sipper with a nice carbonation & light malty finish with a slight hop bite. The lingering finish has hints of candied orange peel and a continuation of the honeyed sweetness. This wasn’t overly sweet or malty. A reminder that not all amber ales are equal. Definitely one I’d have again—and one I wouldn’t mind sharing with those who aren’t into hoppy ales.
