Aroma is caramel malts and mild earthiness. The flavor is caramel malts, earthiness bordering on dirty and a tangy finish.

Picked this up and glad its not an amber lager since I have been drinking straub all night

A - Copper amber brown clear with just a 1/4 inch of head that fades out fast to a good lace ring.
S - Smell good malty and toasty with caramel malt and some piney froth.
T - Well its good better than I expected for the rating. Some piney and citrus hops, malty sweetness and some biscuit toasty flavor.
M - Light bodied somewhat watery could explain the lower rating.

Overall its good enough to drink or pound with enough hop bite to keep it interesting. Tasty stuff.

Definitely amber, though with a slightly lighter leaning in the color, this one is clear and bright. The head is tight and frothy, almost an entire finger tall but just short. It's got good stick and more than moderate lacing by way of patches and some thin legs.
Malt-forward on the nose, this beer offers mostly some dark fruits and toasty, though a touch of herbal leaf gives a light bitterness. It's not particularly strong, but it pretty much fits the standard for the style.
The taste brings it up a notch, though, marrying the malty and hoppy elements in developing a flavorful and well-rounded beer. A little bit more earth is brought out with a stronger citrus element, a bit of zest mostly and particularly orange and grapefruit. It's still more focused on the malts, with lots of toast and earth and a little caramel, but the hops serve the palate well, too.
The feel is crisp and biting with a consistent smoothness in a medium body leaning light.

Poured into an Irish pint glass.

The beer is the standard deep amber color, lighter amber to copperish in the light. An off white head recedes quickly to a light wisp. Lacing is spotty, minimal. The aroma is well balanced with faint sweet caramel malts and just a touch of piny hops. The taste is equally balanced with good amount of caramel candy coming in through the malts, evened out by more citric grapefruity hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and goes down the hatch easily enough.

Overall, I really like the balance in this beer.

Poured into a cold pint glass with 1 finger head. Nice caramel color with a good, sweet aroma. Had a slightly bitter hoppy taste to it. Amber ales are a personal favorite of mine so I might be a little hard on it. Not sure if I'd buy again but overall okay.

12oz bottle

A- pours a clear light amber wisth a one finger head. No lacing throughout.

S- caramel malts with a light earth, grassy hop tone.

T- caramel malts with a bit of biscuit. Slight bitterness with an earthy, slightly spicy hop profile. If I was guessing I would say maybe galaxy hops? Or something close.

O- killer balance in all flavors. Light and very drinkable.

Enjoy
