3.55/5  rDev +4.1%

Bottled 7/18/14m poured into a pint glass

A- pours a crystal clear amber color with a one-finger fizzy & bubbly white head that reduces quickly, leaving just a trace of head behind 3.5

S- flowery hops with some herbal aromas, along with steeped green tea. Toasted biscuit malt gives a hint of caramel, along with a honey sweetness 3.75

T- toasted biscuit malty base with a hint of caramel & honey, tea-like hop bitterness with some floral notes, light pepper finish with a hint of mint 3.5

M- medium-light body with moderate prickly carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel & a semi-dry finish 3.5

O- pretty flavorful amber that highly sessionable with enough complexity to keep it away from mediocrity 3.5

Pale amber with thin white head.
Caramel nose with hints of pine and lemon.
Toffee apple up front with some toasty granola, then light passionfruit, pine, and resin.
Vague pine cone (earthy, woody) finish and grapefruit rind linger.
Light, slight cling, round.

Too thin, with malt over hops, which don't do Simcoe justice. Drinks like Sam Adams, which is not a compliment. Amber for Dummies.
