Good red colour to this amber ale, along with a nice off-white head that left a decent amount of lacing. Muted aroma with some fruity notes and maybe cocoa. Light fruity (apple) and floral flavour with a mild bitterness. Not as much to it as I would have hoped. Medium-light body and carbonation. Drinkable, but one of the lesser micros I came across.

Sampled on tap at Popeye in Tokyo.

This Amber Ale poured a red-amber color with off-white foam that clung to the glass and left some lace. The smell was dominated by fruity, floral hops. The taste was first and foremost floral hops, but with some malt, with a bit of oak and grapefruit. The mouthfeel was smooth and clean with medium body and low carbonation feel. This amber ale was very easy to drink. A good brew.
