Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Our take on an American amber ale. Complex malt bill delivers notes of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit. Copious additions of American hops yield notes of pine and citrus.

Good. But a little bitter for my palate. Pours pretty. Good mouthfeel. But a bit too bitter. Bought a bottle at the Chatham cheese shop and drank with some nice cheese.

The guy who reviewed this below is certainly confused. There is a lot going on in this beer. Solid caramel, chocolate malt backbone with an assertive hop bitterness and aroma. It i pours a beautiful dark amber out of the bottle, as long as you leave the yeast behind as it says on the label. There is so much good with this beer, it is definitely my favorite hoppy ale that is not an IPA or pale ale.
