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.

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.
