I enjoyed this brew at the brew pub just a few feet away from the brewing tanks themselves.

This beer is slightly above average with not much to distinguish it. Served form the tap with a nice head about 2cm thick. Head thins out quickly leaving a single layer of bubbles on the surface. The light flavors of caramel, cranberry, orange rind, and nutmeg come through. A tasty pint to have at the bar but this brew will not blow you away.

5oz sample at the brewpub.
Pours amber with a small off-white head that leaves small whisps of lacing on the way down. Aroma is dominated by caramel, but is backed up with some good hops. Flavor is sweet, with caramelized malts the most dominant, followed with a pretty impressive amount of hops to help balance it all out. Body is medium-full.

Enjoyed at the brewpub.

Presentation is a pint glass, with nice dense light tan 1/2" foamy head over the amber brew. Laced excellently. Aroma is of medium malts, mainly caramel, and a bit of hops. Taste was upfront with the caramel malts, and then balanced quite well with an appropriate amount of hops. Very pleasant brew, and made my lunch that much more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend.

Nothing too fancy about this amber, its not bad, its not awesome, but it is nice on a hot day (when the IPA for some reason is not available)
It has a nice subtle malty aroma with a slight sweetness to it.
Nice amber color, any other color would be odd, right?
Probably the best of the bunch they had when I was there.
