3.6/5  rDev +0.3%

12 oz brown bottle with a freshness date on the side of the label. This bottle was from Liquid Solutions.

Appearance: Dense and rocky off white head holds three fingers deep for a little while, clear and bright reddish auburn colour.

Smell: Bready and husky grain aroma with subtle fruity undertones and light hopping in the nose.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Moderate body with a smooth and crisp mouth feel, a heavy hand of toasted malt on the palate. Nice bite from the hop bitterness shows and slightly juicy underbelly of citric hop. Some fruity flavours and nutty yeast make their way to the taste buds. Finishes a little sweet.

Notes: A rock solid amber ale, nothing special just an easy drinking ale. Quite enjoyable.

A dark amber on the pour with a monstrous head, frothy in consistency, beige in color and the residual lace a find sheet to cover the glass. Nose has nice malt sweetness, crisp and clean, a real sniffer. Sweet malt start and the top middling and the finish mildly acidic, the hops pertinent, and the aftertaste dry and long lasting, a real treat to the palate.

Hoppy slightly sweet nose with a touch of alcohol in the back of your nose. Very, very carbonated looks almost like cherry 7-up with a little white head. Deep sweet maly taste with a complementing hop finish. Very balenced. The mouth is refreshing and effervescent for an amber. It is not flat and overly malty like lots of reds... I like the character oof the brew alot.

Cheers to mattmaples for the sample.

Amber color with a good medium body. Malts balance very well with a medium hop bitterness. Nut flavors present near the finish. A nicely enjoyable beer.

Nice medium bodied amber with complex malt character and spicy hop balance. Real good right off the line.
