Pours a rich copper color with a thin head that trails the glass. The smell was a little boozy but had great smells of malt and a little bit of pine from the hops. The taste was a bit more mellow than I thought it would be considering the smell but still very nice. The taste had toasted malts with some hops, and then a bit of burn on the end. I liked it quite a lot.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy copper/amber color to it. It has a nice thick beige head that dies down moderately and leaves lovely lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of biscuity malts, sweet caramel, toffee, bitter pine resins and some earthy hops.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some biscuity malts, sweet caramel, light toffee, some pine resins and an earthy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. A good hoppy Amber Ale!

Serving type: bottle
