Moderately fruity specialty malt character in both flavor and aroma. Flavor is a touch sweet, with floral hop notes and a deeply toasted malt backbone.

Deliberation Amber on tap at the brewpub in Lexington.

Deep amber with good clarity and a fine head.

Medium body and carbonation.

Aroma: typical, if a tiny bit less malty than average, for style.

Good sweet/bitter balance leans more to the bitter side than an average amber.

O: well-crafted, but very mainstream amber.

Poured from can into Chimay goblet.

A - Clear, medium amber brown. One finger of fine cream foam.

S - Slight fruitiness, banana maybe.

T - Mild hops, smooth esters, slight spice, light malt.

M - Nothing exciting, pretty basic overall.

A decent ale, nothing special but don't confuse that as being bad. A good average beer, better than Bud any day.

Can from trade. Thanks! Pours a very pretty bet hue with half finger light cream head. Aroma of nice caramel malts, fruits, and some floral hop notes. Taste is biscuits and floral notes from the hops, slight bitter with a nice malt balance. Light body and somewhat light on flavor but very sessionable. Medium high carbonation. Crisp finish. Not super special but nicely done in the style.
