4.2/5  rDev +13.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a Pint Glass

Appearance - Extremely Hazy Dark Orange color; They do not get much more unfiltered than this. Despite that, you can make out the carbonation along the very edges.

Smell - Buttery Biscuits, Yeasts, Piney Hops, Malty Sweetness and some Toffee Notes.

Taste - Cloves, Bubblegum, Toffee, Yeasts, Malts and Floral Hops. Pretty tasty for an Amber Ale and nicely balanced, considering all the flavors.

Mouthfeel - Body is quite heavy and the carbonation is pretty strong, which is the weakest aspect of this beer. The body itself makes this beer more of a sipper rather than something you can just slam instantly, which both in favor of and against the beer.

Overall - An excellent Amber Ale despite some problems with it's palate. I've always had solid beers from Rush River and this proves to be another quality beer from that brewery.

4.34/5  rDev +17%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Smell is a bit understated, but has a pleasant caramel sweetness to it...some toastiness...whiff of hops.

Pours a light red color in the pint glass....head minimal but present. Looks appropriate.

Taste is a very pleasant one. A good caramel sweetness comes first, with a great note of biscuit pairing with it. Tasty. Hops are present on the present in an herbal way....just enough to wrap the swallow up right without lingering.

All in all, an outstanding amber ale. Happy to have had it.

Had in bottle form in St. Joseph, MN at Bello Cucina

A: cloudy, good creamy head; dark orange color
S: pleasant orange-infused hop aroma; opens up to slight bubblegum
T: sweet, well-balanced pale ale; very nice balance between hops, malt, and alcohol; the straw flavor complemented by some nice finishing hops

A solid amber ale.
