Nice beer samples on tap. Clean light amber color with minimal head and mild-to-moderate carbonation. Smells very faintly of apple. Tastes of apple, cinnamon and malt biscuit. Nice and clean, crisp and easy to drink. Thin mouthfeel with a clean finish. Scant alcohol flavor from start to end.

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 9/14/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep orange amber/light copper color with a 1-2 finger foamy off white head with poor retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the lace cap. Good appearance. Aromas of slightly tart red/green apples, fruit skin, caramel, brown sugar, pie crust, toasted biscuit, nutmeg, cinnamon, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, apple pies, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of slightly tart red/green apples, fruit skin, caramel, brown sugar, pie crust, toasted biscuit, nutmeg, cinnamon, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spice bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of red/green apples, fruit skin, caramel, brown sugar, pie crust, toasted biscuit, nutmeg, cinnamon, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, apple pies, and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitter/spice balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.5%. Overall this is a very nice fruit/spiced American amber ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, apple pies, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, easy, and pretty refreshing to drink. Very classic tasting American amber ale flavors, with nice presence of real apple pies, and just enough hops to balance the sweetness. A very pleasant and enjoyable offering; and spot on style example.
