Medium amber with finger of off white head that leaves a fair bit of lacing down the glass. In the aroma, pretty standard for an amber ale, with a mild caramel/toffee quality and a bread crust base. Same with the flavor, except, more so. Nothing off-putting at all about the brew, which I had at the Gilbert pub. Easy drinking and refreshing, with a medium body, average carbonation, and not dry, but, not slick, either. Good game day brew.

Poured a clear amber body with a thin ring of white head. A quite nice looking amber ale. Scents of sweet, bready malt, lightly toasted malt, light caramel, fruity esters, a light hint of butter (diacetyl), and very low levels of floral hops. Overall impression of aroma is of a classic sweet, malty amber ale, with just a touch of hops and a little bit of diacetyl that aids the aroma in this instance. Flavor begins medium-sweet with notes of sweet, bready malt, caramel, toffee. light amounts of apple, nutty malt and light toasted malt. The middle continues flavors of caramel at a light level, with medium levels of nutty and toasted malt character and light toffee. Finish is medium-sweet with light notes of caramel and buttery toffee and moderate toasted and nutty malt flavors. Aftertaste is buttery toffee, toasted and nutty malt and very light caramel with a light bitterness from floral hops. A very light hop bitterness is present throughout. Overall impression of flavor is of a nicely malt forward profile with a slight undercurrent of bitterness, toasted and nutty malt keeping it from becoming cloying. It is nicely rich and pleasant, a very good example of an amber ale. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with high carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel that finishes slightly drying. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a very good, easily drinkable mouthfeel that is nicely refreshing. Overall this is a very good amber ale. It is malty, balanced, sessionable and refreshing. The aroma and flavor are quite nice and it has a pleasant feel. Very good.
