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.

Appearance - It looks like an amber ale. poured from bottle into pint glass

Smell - Toasted malts. that's pretty much it.

Taste - Extraordinarily one dimensional. Toasted malts, and that's it. No sweetness or bitterness to balance the toasted malts.

Mouthfeel - Thin, weak - again, not enough bitterness to balance the malt flavor.

Overall - Tasted with another amber ale. This one paled in comparison. no depth of character at all. Toasted malt...again, that is it. It didn't taste bad, but it was blown away by another amber that gets pretty pedestrian ratings here. Will probably try it again to see if this was an anomaly.
