3.63/5 rDev -4.7%
A - An amber red with cloudiness and 1 finger of head. Slight lace left on the glass. Looks good!
S - Lots of sugar, molasses, and brown sugar. Huge maltiness in the nose.
T - Malts kick in up front. Like the smell, sweet, sugar and caramel. Nicely balanced with some bitterness at the end.
M - Light bodied and fairly well carbonated.
O - A very drinkable amber ale. Well balanced, and good.

A three-inch, gold tinted head is frothy as it slowly turns to pancake batter consistency while dropping spotty lace on a fisheye pint glass. Ample carbonation clings to the glass beneath a clear, copper brown beer.
The aroma is biscuity with malt, toffee, tea, and a dash of lime in the background.
This is well balanced with a malt backbone and some brown sugar. Whole wheat bread with light hop flavors and light hop bitterness are followed by toasted grains, some nuts and a modest, lingering finish.
The watery texture and medium body contain modest carbonation and no sense of alcohol, with a light astringency in the finish.
This is a good everyday beer, perhaps best with a sandwish. I suggest roast beef on rye.

Pours a nice, soft, light head. Sweet malt dominates the nose. Lovely, almost ruby, red. Starts with an unexpected hop bitterness (didn't smell that) which bright and citric. Moves up into a medium bitterness, then becomes more like citrus rind as the malt comes through. The finish is a stupendous blend of malt and hop, though.
A nice blend of the two dominate takes on ambers; malty and hoppy.
Swirling the bottom bits in the bottle gave it a much nice hop aroma and flavor.
As it warmed, the malt just became more pronounced, so it just gets better.
