Bottled - Poured into pint glass

Style - Hits the notes for the beer style

Nose - Subdued a bit but malt and hops are there

Mouth - Again about what the style calls for but perhaps a little more than average
Finish - Initially mostly malt but the finish brings on more of the hops and definite dryness.

A decent brew for a session and a good stater brew to introduce friends to the style

not much head with the beer, golden copper color. ok looking. not much of a smell either, some hops in there, but nothing exciting at all. the taste was nice - good decent beer. glad i was able to try something new.

A: Pours a clear deep amber in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint copper highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy beige head that reduces to a medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuit and caramel malts with a hint of Belgian yeast spiciness and light grassy hop aromas.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of biscuit and caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness. That is followed by a light flavor of dark fruit (prune) and Belgian yeast spiciness. Finally, there is a light flavor of grassy hops in the finish which gives a light amount of bitterness that does not linger.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: An interesting combination of an American Amber Ale and a Belgian Dark Ale... Nice complexity in the flavors but a touch too sweet for my palate. Definitely worth trying but not sure that I would get it again.
