not really much to say here, pretty bellow average attempt at an amber ale. Crystal clear amber color, head is ok. Kinda reminds me of a not as good, filtered belgian white.

It has a nice fluffy head and a deep golden amber color, and it's a pretty solid brew, but there's not a lot to recommend in this beer. Nothing wrong but nothing really remarkable, either. What I did find interesting was the specific kind of bitterness in the flavor. It takes more notes from the orange peel than the usual source of beer bitterness, hops. It takes on other aspects of the orange flavor, but the least of this is the sweetness (which I am in favor of, as sweet is a treacherous tone to add to beer). So there is that to appreciate in this fruit beer. It's definitely better than average, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it, as the more dominant malty beer flavor is a bit lackluster.
