Pours a light reddish brown. Not hazy or cloudy, but still slightly translucent. The head is an impressive combination of larger bubbles and foamy, cloudy looking bubbles. Good retention.

There isn't a lot of smell, but what's there is like a roasty charcoal scent. Grainy.

I was expecting something malty, but it's just the opposite. Tastes like a pale ale, or even a black IPA. Has a charcoal taste, some pine and no semblance of maltiness.

For a split second, it's smooth, and then the charred flavors and hoppy bitterness take over and continue well into the finish.

Not all that good, even for a style I don't typically care for. It's not an easy drink. My palate stayed confused even after downing most of the glass. Not something I'll drink again.

Tan colored head, good lacing, and a deep amber body made for an aesthetically pleasing beer. However, the clean, hoppy notes overpowered the carmel maltiness in their battle for taste bud real estate. "Hello, my name is nothing worth remembering."

A- Pours a very rust-like amber in color with a small, 1 finger head. Retention is good and lacing is also good. Body of the beer is very hazy, with visible debris in suspension.

S- Very faint overall, with a hint of slight hoppiness coming through. Amber malts are also a evident and just a touch on the sweet side. Actually just a hint of chocolate sweetness comes through too.

T- Starts with mild hops bitterness and transitions into more malty flavors rather quickly. Hops are only a little bitter, with pine flavors being the primary flavor. Malts are grainy and bready in flavor with very little sweetness when compared to the scent. Malt flavors linger for a little bit after the drink.

M- Easy drinking, highly carbonated, and a little thinner than expected on the tongue.

Overall, just your average, small brewery, flagship amber ale. Worth trying, not worth seeking out.
