Pours a nice, dense, soapy head that leaves a wall of lacing. Sweet malt with almost a caramel aspect, then a touch of floral/citrus hops behind that. Hazy, straw-amber color. Starts with a very floral/citrus hoppiness. Flash of biscuity malt that lingers for a second, then back to wonderful, bright, floral hops. The finish has the lovely floral hops atop a touch of malt.

This is a really great brew; it's a great balance of malt and hoppiness. It swings a little bit more towards the hoppy, but the bitterness is kept in check. This is easily one of the most refined and balanced brews I ever had when I lived out West. This is probably one of my top 10 favorites.

Dark gold body; lots of finely bubbled carbonation; thick, sticky white head. Nice aroma combination, mixing slightly sweet grains with some fruity esters; ripe peach and apricot. Biscuit and fruit-like flavors; semi-sweet; good, soft, enveloping hop bitterness wrapping everything together. Medium body; crisp and dry.

An all-around, flavorful amber ale. Decent balance with the grains and hops. Further sips seem to bring out a more honey-like sweetness to the flavor and feel as opposed to my initial sense of esters. A solid beer...
