3.5/5 rDev -4.6%
12oz bottle into a pilsner
A - Beautiful clarion amber with a short, light tan head that leaves a passable amount of lace.
S - Lots of sweet malt and very noticeable hops.
T - Pilsner and lots of crystal malt. Very apparent of hop bitterness.
M - Carbonation is good for the style. Fullness is spot on. It's a bit dry and leaves behind an astringency.
O - Not bad, really. This one got knocks more for the astringent aftertaste than anything else. Also, the crystal wasn't balanced very well. Still pretty drinkable, though. The colder, the better.

12oz Brown Bottle with pry-off cap enjoy by month of "Jan" poured into a Becker Glass
Appearance: Pours a clear, deep amber with 1/2 finger of head
Smell: Caramel malt and breadiness
Taste: I find a that a noble hop bitter comes right at the tip of your tongue then there is a rich caramel malt in the middle with a slightly sweet finish
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation but has a lighter mouthfeel than I expected
Overall: There's a nice amount of caramel flavor with a slight noble hop bitterness to help balance it out. I personally would prefer a little more depth in the mouthfeel.
