3.38/5 rDev +1.2%
A: Dark reddish orange tones with a tannish creamy-frothy like head that was lengthy in stay. Carbonation was healthy, strong, and quick paced. Lacing was moderate.
S: Gentle hay, fresh pale grains, green flowery hops mixes with some semi-dry apple and lemon peel.
T: Apple citrus flavor with some soft hay backing. Some background toastedness, caramel, just enough to give you an appreciation while still maintaining a pale, grainy and straw like taste. Green hops, leafy, warming flowers, almost nobel like.
M: Medium consistency, medium carbonation, syrupy texture and flowery pollen coats the tongue there-after.
O: Overall easy drinking, fresh grainy pilsner like feel with some caramel sweetness, light bodied, not heavily hopped, some nobel flower indications and goes down smoothly enough. Nice flowery fade that lingers gently behind.

Bottled in Feb.
(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer has a crystal clear aged copper body with a slight density to it and a strong carbonation supports a thin wispy film that soon breaks up.
S- The soft dry roasted malt hint is all that really shows up in the clean aroma.
T- The light tart hint leads to a slightly toasted malt flavor with a soft copper hop note in the finish. The finish is pretty dry.
M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a gentle fizz note and no alcohol heat.
O- The nice malt flavor is a bit soft with some odd metallic notes in the finish and the tartness was a bit out of place.

3.18/5 rDev -4.8%
Appearance - Medium amber. Slightly cloudy. Medium tall, off white, foamy head. Good persistence.
Smell - Medium roasted malts. Caramel, toffee. Not getting much in the way of hops.
Taste - Medium roasted malts. Not real sweet. A subdued chocolaty caramel. Grassy finish
Mouthfeel - Medium.
Overall - Hits most of the marks for an american amber. Not especially distinctive or tasty, though.

Pours a nice, 2-finger, soapy head. A spicy, Oktoberfest-like aroma with caramel hidden behind it. A straw-burnt sienna color. Starts off a touch hoppy, with nice, sweet malt tones. There is a mild, mild caramel aspect to the maltiness which blends with the hops to make an Oktoberfest reminiscent flavor. The finish is a nice, wonderful biscuit flavor.
Overall, I like this. It's like if Oktoberfest were an Ale. Quite sessionable and pleasing.
If you like a malty brew, this will not disappoint.
