Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 08-20-2001

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

Appearance - 3.5/5
Extremely clear dark red-orange, about 1 finger of head, which dissipates down to a thin layer. An average amount of carbonation can be seen rising up the beer.

Smell - 4/5
Very amber-ale-esque, sweet moderately dark malts, light fruit flavors, perhaps a bit of orange.

Taste - 4.25/5
Malts, darker sugar slightly fruity. Tastes like I would expect an amber to. Perhaps a bit of metallic taste, but it doesn't bring down the overall flavor.

Mouthfeel - 4/5
Medium bodied, very crisp, light amount of medium-high intensity carbonation. Goes down smooth.

Overall - 4.25/5
Overall this was a really great Amber and a great beer overall.

Not a very good brew, just okay. One of those ales that just misses the mark, and I had this one right in Juneau Alaska where it's brewed.
