This is WAY underrated as a "very good". In aligning with another rating I had seen..it does remind me of what is called a bitter... when you order it at a pub in the UK. They "pull" it up by pumping the handle at the bar and it comes up through pipes/tubes connected to the keg/barrels from the cellar. I went there way before great American craft breweries began the revolution here, so the brew in the UK was even more special back then.

Dark brown and silky, smells like caramel. Tastes very sweet and slightly tangy at the end. Delicious!

appearance is good, color is off for an amber, more of a hazy golden yellowish color instead of an amber reddish brown. unfiltered. Smell is balanced, more on the malty side with minimal hops aroma and some carmelyness.

taste...is amazing! wow! this is the first beer thats really surprised (in a good way) me in a while! initially its pretty sweet and malty, almost to the point that you'd think it was going overtake the beer, but then after a second or two the sweetness completly dissapaits and you get some caramely malts and a very easy to drink smooth well rounded balaced beer. there is also this carbonated tingling... that is unexplainable but great, never expierienced that before but loved it! Move over alaskan and full sail this is my new favorite amber! Sessionable!
