Apperance- pours a smooth 1/4 inch head. Very light lacing

Taste- This beer is very smooth and drinkable. We call it a creeper beer because is is 6 percent but slides like a typical yellow beer.

overall- This is a very drinkable amber ale that I would not hesitate to drink again.

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.
