Dark amber with a shiny, two-finger tan froth. Smells of faint caramel and tea leaves. Malty with persimmon and mild herbal hops. Medium in body. Like it but don't love it, but I'll definitely take some more of it.

Did not enjoy. Unhoppy yet unflavorful

Pours a brown color but pretty transparent, hinting at the overall lightness of the beer. The smell has a hoppy fragrance over the malt. The taste is delightful. A deceptively light malt base despite the full flavor carrying an almost session IPA-like hop profile that also is light but impressively floral. The feel is similarly appreciated. An exceptional, stand-out springtime hoppy brown.

pours a beautiful copper color with a 2 finger head. Head is especially fluffy and airy. Smell is a bit off, almost a dried herb sent (yes, that herb). Taste is a nice mix between ale and hoppy goodness. Feel is smooth - easy to drink. Overall it is a very good beer, not quite outstanding - but teetering not he brink.

Bottle from the Lazy dog
Lightly hazy red amber color with a huge frothy off white head. Big pine and resin with some citrus on the nose. Plenty of bread and caramel and just a touch of chocolate to round things out. Drinkable with an old school feel to it.

Very hoppy; I'm not a fan of hoppy beers because they are an abomination. It's not 1750 in British East India.

This amber provides a nice clean, crisp drink with light floral and citrus notes that eventually gives way to the caramel malt flavor. I'm not too familiar with the amber ale style to provide too much detail but it certainly is a very drinkable balanced ale.
