A - Rich caramel-amber in hue, small light khaki head with dense bubbles. Some nice lacing and a thin ring of retention on top.
S - A bit of caramel malt mixed nicely with the scent of spicy and perhaps a bit of grapefruity hops.
T - The malt profile is smooth and slightly robust but quickly gives way to some spicy hops. Finishes semi-dry with a slight and pleasant bitterness in the mouth and sweetness on the lips.
MF - Smooth and a bit syrupy in texture. Pretty drinkable. Carbonation is matched well.
O - The caramel malt / spicy hops work nicely. Mouthfeel is great and drinkability is ample. I'm starting to love the Amber style, and this one is no exception. Very good.
