Dark amber color, slightly cloudy when poured into a pint glass.
Clean crisp taste with a mild aftertaste.
Excellent amber worth trying or having on hand to share.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, some hops and some fruit.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of caramel, citrus and some other fruits. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid beer worth drinking for a while.

A: Bronze with a slight redish tint. Light tan head with a medium carbonation.

S: Spice and wheat bread. Toasted seeds like cashew and walnut and malted barley. A dash of metal and aluminum.

T: Sweet brown sugar notes and tangy finish. New wood, maybe cedar. Rich and nutty with a cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Mellow and smooth and light for an amber with still a well rounded palette of toast and grain.

M: Thin in a cool and refreshing way. A bit of a steel aftertaste mixed in qua woodiness that lingers long and dry.

O: Long time since I've had a good amber.. Or any amber in fact. Very light and drinkable for an amber. Full flavor without the overly hoppy flavor. Not bad for a beer I bought on clearance.

4.04/5  rDev +12.5%

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a dark caramel copper color. A cream colored head recedes to a chunky film, with good webby lacing. The beer smells deliciously of malts, bready yeast, and sweet caramel. The taste is also bready with a glaze of sweet caramel over it. Light grain notes fill out the back end. The mouthfeel is medium bodied.

Overall, a really great tasting amber ale with all of the great amber characteristics.
