Sweet, malty smell with a very faint hint of hops

Tastes like I'd expect from the smell - sweet and caramel-y with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Heavy body, with medium carbonation.

Overall, it's a good amber. Something I'll probably buy again come Fall

12 oz brown longneck poured into a shaker, the beer is in fact amber with a sticky tan head.

The aroma is of caramel malts and pine.

My best by date on the bottle is missing. I wonder if this one is a bit old as the hops are more subdued then the label would lead me to believe. The malts are rich with a caramel note. There is a bit of ripe fruit and some latent citrus bitterness. It is tasty, but I would like to sample again.

The mouth is nice. It is a bit thick and coating.

Man, I can smell the hops, but I just can’t really taste them.
