Pours amber to copper with a head that doesn't last long. Some spots of lacing slide down the glass, but not much sticking.

The smell is of caramel with a faint herbal touch.

The taste is of toasted caramel with herbal/minty hops.

It is a bit fizzy on the first sip, but then becomes clean and smooth, as a lager should be. A nice aftertaste lingers.

A good amber ale. Nice mix of malt and hops for the winter season!
