Notes/Commercial Description:
This first beer from Newport Storm continues to be one of its most popular. The goal was to create a flavorful ale where delicate malt and hop flavor were in perfect balance. To meet this goal, the brewing crew uses North American crystal malt for color and sweetness, and Munich Malt for body and mouthfeel. The perfect amount of spicy Tettenang hops are added for flavor and aroma which compliment the bittering properties of the Magnum hops to round out this session brew.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 9/2013. Pours moderately hazy orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, floral, light nuttiness, grass, and floral earthiness. Ok aromas with good complexity of malt notes with light hops; and decent strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, floral, grass, light nuttiness, light pine, and toasted earthiness. Light pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, floral, grass, light nuttiness, and toasted earthiness on the finish. Nice complexity of malt flavors with a fair amount of hop presence; with solid robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with fairly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this a pretty solid malty amber ale style. Good complexity and balance of malt notes with light hops; and smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
