Pours a clear amber, leaves a fizzy white head that had decent retention

Smells very pleasing, hints of apple, a splash of grapefruit hops, with some fruity yeast.

The taste was very suprising, has a fair apple flavor to it, some honey, the malts are fairly subtle and the hops are so light to as not be there. This is sweeter than most beers I've tried, but doesn't turn me off in the slightest.

Light bodied, light carbonation, crisp finish.

I would certainly drink this again, would help quell the summer's heat.

I felt this beer needed a more malty profile. The hops were of a variety I couldn't place either. All in all an average brew. I do plan on trying some of their other brews when I get a chance.

I did go to their website to look for merchandise and didn't see any. I like to collect brewery t-shirts.

Bottle from Harvest Market.
Pours a crystal clear medium gold color with a smallish white head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of bready caramel malt and light earthy hops to counter. The flavor is what I expected from the aroma. Sweet bread and caramel with hints of fruit and earth. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick sweet mouthfeel. Serviceable ale, reminds me of something I would have been really into about 10 years ago, but today its just ok.

A - Amber Ale, really? THis looks like bud with a drop of orange food coloring

S - Smell is mellow, nothing offensive, nothing stands out

T - Very disappointed in this beer. Would call it a pilsner. Taste is not amber like in the least.

M - Okay, again, nothing offensive, nothing outstanding.

O - Weak
