Russet Brown colored....nice sweet malty aroma of caramel candy....taste follows suit with a touch of earthy hops to add a sense of balance. I love a good malty amber ale and this definitely fits the bill. Not cloying but some may find it too sweet. I like it.

Pours a clear reddish amber color with white head. Grass, malts, cereal, and some earth tones on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a mostly malt focus, a little grass sneaks in.

A sandy blonde-brown with a 1/2 finger of head, sliver of head remaining after a minute or so. 30% transparency.

Aromas of candi sugar, caramel malts, and slight yeast. It's very sweet and decadent.

Flavor is downright delicious. Lots of sweet sticky caramel, candi sugar, oats, with some nice hop presence at the end.

Feel is medium bodied with a nice moderate carbonation.

Overall? One of the best damn Amber Ales on the planet. This is so good.
