Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a sly transparent amber color with some carbonation seen rising to fill a finger’s worth of white foamy head. Soft film of white foamy head congregates around the glass. The lace is the same. The aroma has a soft malty sweet blend of biscuits, white bread, caramel, toffee and grassy hops. Some fruitcake comes in as it warms. The flavor was sticky malty sweet with the biscuits seemingly tasting like they’re honey coated. Some nuttiness comes out. Hops seem barely there. Crisp nutty caramel/toffee/toasty/fruitcake aftertaste. Sticky malty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. ABV felt fine. Overall, good as a red ale worthy of having again for the style.

Solid - a nice balance of maltiness offset by a bit of bitterness from the hops. On the lighter side of medium bodied and not overly carbonated. Easy drinking and refreshing.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #86 (Mar 2014):

Citrus, Toasty, Yeast

A well-put-together Amber Ale, the brewers dose this brew sufficiently with Cascade and Centennial hops. This beer has some body to it, while the toasted malt flavor evens things out. Even with all of this, though, it lands around the middle of the pack.

STYLE: American Amber Ale | ABV: 5.7% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

A: The beer is very hazy amber in color. It poured with a quarter finger high beige colored head that died down, leaving lots of lacing on the surface and the sides of the glass as well as a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of caramel malts and floral and grassy hops, the latter of which contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness. There also seem to be some hints of earthy yeast.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very well balanced between the malts and hops; the taste seems like a constant battle between caramel and bitterness on your taste buds with alternating notes of sweetness and grassy hops.
