Standard slightly sweet amber beer. Mild hops, light sweetness comes through with pleasant aftertaste, a good session beer, no need for a lengthy review. On par with Saranac amber. Decent but won't knock your socks off. Wish to visit the brewery sometime.

A- Pours a deep, rusty amber, yet the body remains fairly translucent. Small, 1 finger, slightly off white head forms and retains well. Good lacing.

S- Lots of biscuit malts up front with some brown sugar sweetness backing it up. The latter half of the scent is more towards the hop side, with a touch of piney bitterness on the nose.

T- Predominantly malty up front and throughout the drink. Biscuit flavors from the scent are not as prominent in the taste, but still there. The hops bitterness from the scent transitions into the flavor fairly identically to finish the drink with a hint of a bite. Throughout the whole drink the brown sugar sweetness from the scent is very subdued and beneath the other flavors.

M- This beer is light across the tongue with a high level of carbonation. Really easy to drink, as neither the alcohol or flavor profile is overpowering.

Overall, just your average, everyday amber that a small brewery has to have in its lineup. Either needs more of the hops bitterness or more of the malt flavor profile to become more than just another micro flagship beer.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose isn’t too strong - I can get a little bit of caramel and toasty maltiness to it, but little else. Taste is definitely toasty and very slightly burnt, with the maltiness coming throughout the drink.

Poured from an undated 12 oz. bottle: reddish amber with brown highlights with a thin and foamy off-white head.
Faint, sweet and perfumy malt dominates the aroma with just a hint of hops; very restrained overall.
This amber has a surprising tangy and fruity taste with a very mild hop bitterness coming through. This ale becomes more balanced as it warms in the pint glass. A hint of roastiness complements the malt dominant flavor.
This medium bodied ale has a soft and rounded mouthfeel with just enough carbonation to keep it refreshing. A lingering, almost syrupy mouthfeel lingers on the palate, perhaps a little too long.
Another nice ale from Indiana. Overall, a flavorful, sessionable and malt accented amber but nothing really stands out.
