Pours a clear orange, off-white inch head. Scent of roasted malts, toffee, and a hint of pine. Taste follows the nose, a slightly nutty amber, but no real prominent flavors. Mouthfeel is medium-thick, just right for an amber. A generally pleasing amber ale, quite easy to drink.

A - Crystal orange amber body. White head with ok retention and lace.

S - Caramel malt, toffee, and marzipan.

T - Toffee malt, lemony hop, crisp carbonation, and a sweet bready finish.

M - Medium body.

O - Not a bad brew. There's nothing here to get too excited about, but that's also what makes it endearing.
