This is one of my favotires. Slightly bitter, extremely flavorful, right in my sweet spot. I am not on the IPA bandwagon. I like some IPAs and dislike the extremely bitter ones. This amber ale is more my speed and this one from New Holland is one of my go-to beers that I could drink copious amounts of.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint glass. Date stamp 0174 13:38

Appearance: Hazy dark amber. Thin white persistent head – some sheets and thick strands of persistent lacing.

Smell: Orange citrus backed up with a caramel sweetness. Some floral and leafy notes as well as the beer warms up.

Taste: Sweet with caramel, toasted barley flavors, and bready flavors. Orange citrus mixed in with some sweet-tea like flavor along with some more toasted flavors at the end. The finish has a lingering sweetness that is tempered with some lingering citrus hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation – sticky on the teeth and palate.

Overall / Drinkability: Quite the malt bomb for an amber ale – not quite wee heavy territory, but I’m surprised with how much malt this beer has. I was expecting something lighter than what I got. I think it helps that I have a bit of a sweet tooth otherwise I think this beer might be a bit much. I had this by itself after mowing the yard and I think it may have been better with food. Still a good beer though if you’ve got a sweet tooth. As for drinkability, another one of these in an evening strikes me as a good idea – despite the sweetness there is enough other flavor going on that I’m not tiring of it.
