Dark golden brown. It has a promising malty aroma (but with virtually no hops), but the taste is that of an undistinguished amber. Not bad but not notable. Wanted to try this local beer since we just arrived here in SC.

12 oz bottle poured into a spiegelau glass.

A - copper clear body with foamy white head. Good retention and lacing. Lots of visible carbonation.

N - perhaps a bit stale. Good malt character, caramel and bread. A little kind of earthy hops.

T - pretty tasty. Light hop character, nothing too overpowering. Mostly it's a rich malty taste though.

M - smooth. Good aftertaste.

O - nicely drinkable beer. Good enough. Cheers.

Another "Hop Head" brewery. When I drink an Amber, it's because I don't want an IPA. Would be better beer without the hops.

Could come together better. Has a somewhat harsh malt character. Still, very drinkable.
