A: Pours deep amber with one finger of tan head. Good retention with only a little of lacing.

S: Toasted malts. Pine. Resin. Sweet fruits and nuts.

T/M: Hops, Citrus. Pine. Herbal. Malts, Toasted. Caramel. Sweet. Fruits. Well balanced and creamy. Bitter. The finish is nutty but mostly bitter with a linger of hop resin.

O: Very good Amber Ale. Nice and hoppy with a strong malt presence which pushes the balance slightly to one side. An excellent example of the style.

Cheers!!

On tap at the ABE airport. It’s pretty good. darker amber body. Light fruity sweet aroma. Taste was similar. More sweet tastes than fruitiness. It’s kind of like a baby Nugget Nectar.

A: crystal clear; amber colored; 1 finger khaki head that receded to a thick collar; nice lacing;

S: very well balanced; roasted grain, toffee, pine, a touch of citrus, a little spice;

T: roasted grain and a little nutty up front; earthy hop character comes in mid-palate; light to medium bitterness from mid-palate; long finish; until the finish, it's well balanced;

M: medium bodied; moderate, creamy carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: lacks the characteristic caramel note often found in ambers, but that's fine with me; I also really like the higher than usual bitterness at the end;
