Notes/Commercial Description:
Richly malty and long on the palate, with just enough hop backing to make this beautiful amber colored "alt" style beer notably well balanced.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours an amber color with a thin 1 finger head. Head goes away quickly. Not a lot else to say, looks like an amber.

S: Malty on the nose, slight sweet caramel. Takes a bit to warm up and unleash the aroma.

T: Sweet malty taste. Goes down quick and easy. Surprisingly has a bit of a bitter taste as well.

M: Medium bodied and carbonation. Has a resiny aftertaste.

O: Very solid above average amber, interesting to have every once in a while. Easy drinking beer, great session beer. Having only one on the day, I'd reach for something a little more interesting.

This particular brew has a magnificent dark amber appearance, though little or no head. The amber has a mild, sweet aroma, nothing special. The taste was disappointing for me quite watery in both mouthfeel and taste. Somewhat sweet at first, hints of citrus and carmel then fades to an okay alcoholic taste. I was expecting a bit more from this beer- I do enjoy my amber ales. I will finish this bottle but will not go back for seconds.
I would recommend to a girl.
