Looks like a solid coloring to it. With a smell of a wide mix of fruits to it. Tastes like a like a bitter and sweet caramel at the same time to give a good finish. The feeling is a smooth and uneventful one. Overall this was a fair beer that I won't scold nor complement.

Poured from 12 oz can into pint glass. Nothing special about the look or feel of this one. Weak red/amber color with too much head. More over carbonation than head. Something I didn't like about the smell and taste but can't put my finger in it. Just not impressed with this one from 603.

Aroma is caramelly sweet, with amber malt fruitiness and a hint of citrus.

Flavor is oddly caramelly, as well, which is fine because I'm not an amber fan. There's moderate amber fruitiness, some sharp citrus, and it finishes nutty and just a touch bitter.

As it warms, thinking there might be some diacetyl. Slickness.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours nice deep reddish amber color with a two finger head of white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma was a sweet mix of caramel and a little bit of fruit. Along with these aromas came some smells of a bready smell as well as a little bit of light pine hop

Taste – The taste begins a rather sweet and bready taste with the sweet being mainly of a caramel nature, but containing some tropical fruit flavors as well. These sweet flavors remain quite potent throughout, but are joined by some rather light pine and earthy hops. In the end, a smooth and sweet, but pleasant flavor is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the style and the sweeter flavors the slightly thicker body and lower carbonation helped bring out the lighter hop flavors which nicely balanced out the sweeter flavors well.

Overall- A rather sweeter and tastier amber that all the while maintained a great drinkability. This was a rather nice brew.
