look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Red-orange in color, ours with a mild chill haze. The off-white head settles pretty quickly. Lacing is limited to just a few minute spots.

S: Caramel, toffee, bread. Grainy. Fruity raspberry ester. Soft grassy hop backing.

T: Grainy up front. Slightly woody. Lots of toast. Touch of caramel and toffee. Drying. Jab of citric hops. Lemon peel and orange marmalade for an instant. Tobacco. Subtle fruity esters. Dry finish of toast and crust.

M: Medium bodied. Creamy and well rounded. Prickling carbonation. Good.

O: A decent amber ale. Nothing more, nothing less.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: minimal head, high carbonation, amber in color, clear

Smell: toasted malt and light citrus hops

Taste: bread, honey, toasted malt and light citrus hops

Mouthfeel: light body, sweet with slight bitterness, moderate-low carbonation

Overall: An average amber that is on the maltier side. Not a bad beer, but nothing I would look for again. Beer Works makes better and there are more enjoyable in the style.
