A: Coppery-amber body with a very small off-white head.
S: Something off - metallic/minerally and maybe some wet cardboard.
T: Some sweet, fruity malt underneath, followed by a metallic hoppy bitterness. Lingering minerally bitterness; a touch earthy.
M: Fairly sharp carbonation. Body is close to medium in heft.
O: OK. Glad to support local brewers.
Notes: Bottle calls it an Amber Ale, though it's listed here as a Pale. . . .
Serving type: bottle

Served on-tap in a tall pilsner pokal at Reel Seafood (Albany, NY).
A: Dusky brown-amber with short cap of off-white small-bubbled head with decent retention and a collar of lace at the top of the glass.
S: Aroma is subdued to say the least with some medium crystal malt caramel sweetness, pale malt graininess, and herbal, earthy hops notes.
T: The flavor is solid nothing more, delivering the middle of the road amber flavors you expect. Nice moderate caramel sweetness up front cut with herbal, lightly citrus hopping. Nice clean beer with no esters. I don't get any of the diacetyl that others have reported, although it does finish a bit sweeter than I like. Low bitterness.
M: Light-medium body with reasonably soft carbonation and not a very dry finish but not bad.
O: Pretty average run of the mill amber ale. Good not great but clean and inobtrusive.
Serving type: on-tap
