look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Mild caramel and wheat bread aromatics. Mild earthy hop notes. Clean fermentation character. Low fruity esters reminiscent of blackberries.

Appearance: Deep brick red pour. Glass appears still. A wispy off-white head that retains well. Lacing noted on the glass.

Flavor: Rich caramel and bread crust notes up front. Caramel malt is toward the raisin bread spectrum and quickly balanced by firm earthy hop bitterness. Balance is nearly even. Aftertaste is lingering and slightly sweet on the back of the palate. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium high carbonation. A slight carbonic bite. No heat or astringency noted.

Overall impression: A very approachable, somewhat "safe" amber. I'd give this to anyone new to craft beer. Full of flavor and complex enough to keep it interesting but probably not something "extreme" beer lovers will covet. I'd try it again.

Serving type: bottle
