A much lighter but more flavorful version of the standard amber. It seems as though brewers tend to make extreme, aggressively-hopped ambers. this take on the style is better in my opinion. It has some really nice spicy and savory flavors.

L: Yellow gold color with notes of copper, and a frothy white head and lots of frothy lacing around the glass.

S: Slight notes of pear and apricot, a sweet malt aroma and some floral hops. The aroma is a little faint but still nice.

T: Slight notes of pear and apricot, a sweet malt, and then a floral hop with a slight bitterness.

F: Medium body and this is a pretty Crisp beer.

O: Nothing special but this is a very nice simple easy drinking beer.

This beer pours a very pale amber with a moderate head. The aroma offers biscuity malts, small pine, and something rather dusky and dirty. The flavor offers medium biscuity malts, rich pine, citrus, and rich, earthy, dirty tones. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation. Overall this is very pleasant with earthy, piney characteristic - it almost is English in sensibility.

Definitely Amber, not brown. Hoppy, but not overwhelmingly so. Strikingly similar to a regular Sam Adams. Not a bad beer in anyway, but also nothing to write home about. If you're buying I would definitely drink them all night.
