Attractive chestnut brown ale with fairly modest off-white head. Great malty nose with some spices. Taste is a fine balance of sweet and spicy malt and some decent hops. Clean and balanced start to finish, a slightly dry mouthfeel. Happy to try this, my first beer from this brewery. Poured from a can dated 04/20/16 -- presumably the production date (if it's a best-by date, I'm even more impressed).

12 oz can poured into IPA glass. Canned on 4/20/16.

A - semi cloudy orange/amber color with brown highlights. A one finger tan head that retains well.

S - Light citrus (Orange), pine, and biscuit.

T - Follows the nose, with some mint and spruce on the finish. A touch of the caramel malts peek through every now and the.

M - Medium low carbonation, moderate to low mouthfeel.

O - Goes down fast, pretty straight ahead and clean beverage, and it helps a great cause. Recommended.

Pours into a standard pint a clear rich copper with nicely tight formed half finger off white head atop that leaves a broken ring of lace behind.Muted aromas with some faint earthiness and nutty malts mainly.Crisp and dry on the palate with a good amount of nutty maltiness to go along with earthy somewhat spicy Chinooks,again very crisp and dry,one of the dryer amber ales I have had.A nice almost creamy feel and the dryness makes this very quaffable at 5.7%,a solid beer here.

on draft at beer study in chapel hill. shaker.

pours a light red with a mild head. smell is more hoppy than malty. taste is the opposite , more malty than hoppy. very good though, and I'm usually not a fan of malt forward beers . medium bodied, medium carbonation.

overall a very good amber!

A 22oz bomber picked up in Asheville in the fall of 2012

A - A deep mahogany red, with 1 finger of head and sticky lace left all over the glass. Impressive appearance

S - Burnt toast and grain, with a slight alcohol kick. Nothing very strong though

T - Sweet amber and huge malty backbone. NOt too much hop presence.

M - Medium bodied, oily, and high carbonation. Nice mouthfeel

O - A decent amber, but amber is not a prefered style of mine. But I love the Pisgah brewery. Most of their other brews are better, especially the Solstice!
