look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a clear, amber colored body. The head settles fairly quickly and leaves only light lace.

S - Sweet toffee malt, some red apple, and a bit of caramel in the background.

T - Toffee and toasted grain up front. Some light fruit yeast character in the middle with a bit of herbal hop character. More toasted malt in the finish with moderate bitterness and a slightly metallic caramel character that lingers in the aftertaste.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - Nicely malty character with a nicely balanced finish. My only complaint is the metallic taste in the finish, but even that is fairly mild and doesn't quite ruin the experience.

Bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Light copper body with some red tint. A one-finger light tan head that dissipates farily quickly leaving a bit of lacing.

Very prominent malt aroma that seems lightly roasted. A bit of earthy hops in the background.

The flavor is nearly porter-like. Roasted malt flavor that works well with just a touch of sweetness and some light hop notes in the background.

Light to medium texture in the mouthfeel and no notice of alcohol. Overall, a very drinkable amber that puts a little twist on the flavor with the darker malt. I like it.
