Pours a beautiful deep copper to chestnut with reddish hues and a creamy tan head packed with dense carbonation bubbles which dissipates leaving a thick, foamy lacing in its wake and a constant thin head throughout the beer.
The aroma wafts from the glass consisting of a creamy, smoky malt, earthy hops, caramel and even hints of spice.
This has an impressive balance of bitterly aggressive hops and roasted malt as well as bread like flavors and caramel and hidden deeper are hints of clove and even dark fruit and nuts.
This is an impressive palate and mouthfeel, its dry and smooth, yet silky and creamy all at the same time with generous carbonation, yet medium in body.
I am truly impressed by this brew! I am quite surprised at how fast I am going through this 22oz bottle of frothy goodness. It's really amazing how much more character this version of the American Amber offers versus some of its counterparts. A great beer for fans of the style. I traditionally think of American Ambers as a "you know what you're getting" type of beer. This one through me off in a good way.

On-tap at Tizley's in Poulsbo, WA. Poured into a pint pilsner. Clear deep red-brown color, nice one-finger head, then moderate lacing. Aroma is deep and inviting--malt, caramel, fruity, with mild floral hops. Flavor starts with malt and caramel, some toffee, nicely balanced, with moderate citrus hops finish. Mouthfeel is medium thin. Overall this is a really outstanding red ale, I really like it!
