On-tap at the Harrisburg Brewers Fest. The first beer from South County, a dry-hopped amber. Welcome to the scene!

A: The ale is appropriately amber, a fuller brown hue that is still translucent.

S: The nose has citrus hops, pungent, alongside a rich malt backdrop. Caramel and a mild smoke aroma pair up nicely.

T: The smoke is no ploy, it lasts into the taste. The smoke isn't at the smoked bacon level, it is content just to add a deeper flavor. On top of the smoke, the malts add toast and caramel. Mid-sip the hops are mild, slowly building up to a bolder citrus finish. The dry hopping is a smart idea, a crescendo for each sip. The hops aren't at an imperial amber level but they do register as an added bonus.

M: The mouthfeel takes a nice twist with the smoke, dose of sweetness amongst the toasted caramel base. A near-sessionable amber.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bronze/amber color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of citrus hops, some malts. Taste is citrus up front, some smoke, caramel malts at the finish. Moderate bitterness for the style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Nice dark amber color, chocolate citrus arima, taste is a little on the weak side, good aftertaste going down, iverall an average but still drink worthy amber ale
