This one pours a very reddish-gold color that is clear and has a nice tan head that is thick, long lived and settles slowly leaving moderate lacing down the glass. the head settles so slow it pulls the lacing with it.

The nose is peppery, spicy hops with hints of grass, pine and bread.

The taste is nice and hoppy with notes of pepper, pine and camphor with a tinge of alcohol and nice bready sweet malt undertones.

The moutfeel is a little bit more watery than I would like, but not bad.

OVerall this on eis quite drinkable and enjoyable. I highly recommend it.

The beer pours a very dark brown color with a red tint, the head is tan with loose bubbles. It has a strong sweet toffee smell with a hint of chocolate. Tastes very good, I detected some dark chocolate with caramel and bread with a hint of bitterness from the hops. It has a medium body with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. This is a very nice amber I could drink this a lot more.

This is a really nice looking beer. Beautiful, thick, creamy head that sticks around a while, then laces the glass. I wanted to be a little clearer, but the color is right on.

I'm getting floral hops and some roastiness in the nose. Tastes like slight caramel with some bittering that doesn't over power. Quite roasty. The body is excellent. The malts stick to the roof of my mouth.

This is a very nice beer. Feels much hardier than most Ambers. Also, with more flavor than most.
