Bottle poured to pint glass.

A: clear brown color, white half finger head that stays a bit
S: hoppy, slight caramel scent, lots of malts
T: hoppy, bitter, generic solid amber
M: initial hoppy bite, fades to smooth feel, bland aftertaste
D: so-so

Not a big fan of hoppy ambers, this had a lot bold flavors, nice beer, but I won't be getting it again.

At first sip was intrigued to feel the hit of hops mostly in the aftertaste, the back of the palate. Not disappointed at lack of sweetness which accompanies many amber or hoppy blends. Mostly disappointed that with additional sipping, what started as a hint of charcoal next began to produce more of a chalky texture effect. This was the most pronounced impression it made on me and unfortunately, if a beer doesn't finish well with me, it doesn't make me want to start over with another one.
