Aroma is sweet and nutty, with a hint of floral hops.

Flavor reveals fruity specialty malt character, which adds complexity to the toasted bread and nutty malt backbone. The finish is floral and a touch dry.

Very strong malt smell, little other aroma...but I like it. Taste is malty at first, with slight hop finish. Basic, but good.

Looks like an amber should but lacks the smell. Taste toasted but lacks some of the flavor I'd want out of an amber even though most are pretty simple. The beer goes down smooth and it easy to drink. OK Amber but I won't go out of my way to get it again.

Appearance: Pours with a finger and a half of slightly off white head. Light ruby red color with some rusty brown notes. Active carbonation is below average for the style. Sticky random lacing left behind at each level.

Smell: Caramel and sugary toffee right away. Herbal hops, vegetal notes with some slight bitterness on the undertones. Rich sugary malts with some ashy aromas linger on to the back end.

Taste: What you'd expect after the aroma. The biggest players are sugary malts and lingering molasses and caramel. Vegetal flavors with a touch of hop bitterness on the back end rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, slick texture on the palate makes this a pretty drinkable beer. The earthy notes linger. Carbonation is low but works.

Overall: A decent amber. Nothing overly complex but a nice change of pace beer or good for a lesser knowledgeable drinker to try and learn the style.
