look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look - Dark caramel and heavy-looking. Good foam and carbonation levels.

Smell - Typical ale smell, mostly malty-smelling and very little hop smell. I couldn't make out any fruity smells.

Mouthfeel - Light medium. Very subtle creaminess.

Taste - The hops that I missed in the smell I got from the taste, but still very subtle. Nice, strong feel at the back of the palate with a noticeable tingling up near the sinus/soft palate, perhaps from the "spicy German and American hops" advertised on the bottle. Other than that nice little tingle at the back, the taste seems a little bland and ordinary to me.

Drinkability - I would give this one a high drinkablilty. Even though it is sort of lacking in taste, it makes up for it in that light mouthfeel. I think I could easily throw a few of these back before I even realized it.

Pours bright and clear amber-copper color with a nice foamy off white head that leaves some lace in the glass, malty caramel aroma, sweet malty nutty flavors, medium bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel. It does finish with a nice and clean dryness, a very tasty amber ale.
