3.33/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Cloudy orange amber with a minimal off-white head that recedes quickly, but leaves some decent lacing.
Smell is mostly light grassy hops, with some yeast presence. There's a bit of floral hops in there, but it's rather faint. A light malt backing that I think could be stronger and bring in more flavor.
I found this beer to just be not all that flavorful. I mean, it's decent, some malts, some hops, but nothing really notable. I don't get any of the really positive hops flavors I'd look for - mostly a touch of bitterness that comes on in the middle and coasts through the finish. It's easy-drinking, but lacks much complexity to the flavor. Finish is clean.
Light-bodied with about average carbonation. Refreshing feel in the mouth. Finishes smoothly, lingers, hmm, maybe a little less than I'd like.
Decent, but nothing to write home about. I found this beer to be lacking an identity - it didn't seem like it knew what it wanted to be. As a result, there isn't a whole lot in the flavor to make me want to drink it again. I didn't not enjoy it, but there's just not a whole lot to it.

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.
