A 12 ounce bottle, with a silk screened label, poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance - Nice copper color. Slightly hazy. A big head made up of very fine bubbles. Great stickage! A handsome beer.

Nose - Sweet malt mixed with spicy hops.

Taste - The malt backbone is a combination of sweet and toasty. The hops are zesty but not overpowering.

Mouth - Light on the pallet. Prominent carbonation.

Overall - A good beer but not a great beer. This being an Amber, I was hoping the beer would be a bit more "malt forward." On the plus side, this beer is plenty chugable. Also, this a fine looking beer in a nice looking bottle.
