Bottled 020714 at 40 degrees into SA lager glass
Aroma weak but shows hoppy spiceness
Head average (3.5 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer.
Lacing OK – partial reticulum of large holes and small bubbles
Body medium amber, slight chill haze
Flavor begins with slightly bitter hoppiness followed by malt ending with bitterness; no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

A very good amber ale which starts and ends with hoppy bitterness with a hit of malt in the middle – the hoppiness sets it apart from most amber/reds and raises the flavor profile.
