Had this on tap at Spanky's in Hyannis, Cape Cod just down the street from the brewery.

As amber ales go, this is close to the best I've had. I'll admit that I don't typically seek out ambers and have only tried about 10 different kinds.

It was smooth and mellow. A well-balanced amber ale with caramel and toffee malt notes and a subtle spicy hop character. The flagship of Cape Cod Beer, this beer won’t steer you wrong! ”

At the brewery, served in tasting glass.

Appearance - brown/gold color, some slight hints of reddish tones. Decent foamy tan head. Not too persistent, but some decent cling.

Smell - toasty biscuit aroma, pretty grainy. Light resinous hops with some grassy/earthiness.

Taste - sweet, toffee, I found it had an odd bitter kick at the end of the taste. Sweetness was OK. Some resinous hop character, a touch of earthiness. Decent flavor except for the odd bitterness. Didn't seem overly aggressive on the hops.

Mouthfeel - nicely carbonated and medium bodied. Taste lingers a bit, I wouldn't call it "clean".

Overall - a decent beer, easy drinking, but not something I would seek out. The color was off based on what others are describing, so I wonder if there is some variability?
