This pours a caramel tan on the glass.
The aroma has hints of a caramel sweetness with some faint candied orange and cherry characters. The flavor comes off with a caramel-candied orange note, followed by a somewhat metallic finish. Bought this on the strength of Pizza Port’s reputation, despite being an amber ale. Next time I'll know better.
