4.15/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into NB globe glass.

A: Medium amber in color, slightly hazy, thick looking, light brown thin head.

S: Dried cherry, fig, bread, honey, and sweet malt.

T: Great tasting beer. Strong taste of dried fruit, bready malts, and a nice hop balance. The backbone reminds me of a belgian style ale but it mixes nicely with the american amber flavor.

M: Thin, light, medium carbonation. Feel doesn't linger for long.

O: This is an amber ale with substance. Great on flavor but not overbearing in weight or feel. Will definitely buy again when I'm craving this style.
