Look: Pours a clear copper/amber color with a white, fluffy head.

Smell: Citrus hops, some piney and floral notes.

Taste: Citrus hops. Not as strong in the flavor as it is in the aroma. A good balance between hops and malts.

Feel: Light bodied and refreshing.

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!!
