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

For an Amber, it is not the best.

A decent Amber. Nothing out of the ordinary. A good intro to the style.

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.
