8/3....brewery draft. Pours brownish amber, some foam remains sitting on top. Bready malgty, not in the nose. Pushy bitter. Some pine. Hazelnuts. Tasty hoppy amber.

A: Poured from a 1 Pint 6oz bottle. A nice white, foamy 2 finger head dances above a light hazy amber liquid. Some lacing is noticeable as I quaff.

S: The aroma is a nice classic Amber smell. Caramel, malts, and a slight floral scent from the hops. Really makes me want to take a drink.

T: The first taste I am hit with a nice lite hop bitterness that balances into the malts and caramel flavors. Finishes up with a slight bitter and spicy flavor that entices me to take another drink.

M: The feel is okay for an Amber and slightly light for me. I would like a bit more carbonation, but overall it is a nice overall feel.

O: This is a well-done Amber ale that looks beautiful and has a nice lite hop finish. The smell especially hits all the right notes with lots of spice and herb character, but there is enough malt here to distinguish this from an IPA. I would definitely drink this again and recommend that you buy one if you can find it as the price under $5.

Served from a can into a Trooper shaker pint glass.

Wait, this doesn't have anything to do with that shitty workplace-retreat comedy, does it? Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy amber topped by a finger of sandy foam. Small particulates populate my glass, hanging in suspension and drifting about all Brownian and whatnot. The nose comprises grapefruit peel, toffee, dry caramel, and a touch of pine resin. The taste leads with a strong impaling of blunt bitterness, which eventually gives way to some vague melange of grapefruit, pine, and years-old caramel sauce. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, this is a mess of an amber, one that theyw anted to be hoppy, but weren't sure how to balance at all.
