Good amber beer. Rich and savory flavor and yet not to heavy.

S: farily evenly balanced mild malt and hop aromas upon popping the cap. The aromas reveal a clean fermentation character.

L: It pours brilliant orange amber with rapidly rising bubbles under a 1" cream colored foam cap with moderate retention.

T: Rich malts start the flavor with a grainy spicyness that suggests cardamom. An initial malt sweetness dries slightly with some mild bitterness in the finish. It finishes with a slight sweetness.

F: The beer has medium body and medium high to high carbonation.

O: Overall the malt is a little on the low side, the carbonation is a little high, it finishes a little too sweet and it is a little low on character.

Fiery orange tap with a small 1 finger head that recedes to a bubbly ring. 20% opaque.

Aromas of balanced clean and roasted malts, some juicy orange lifts as its agitated.

Flavor is heavily malted, with roast and some bright floral notes.

Feel is perfect. Clean, crisp.

I'd have it again. Great beer!

Amber beer is amber in color, 1/2" white head. Slightly thin looking.

Taste is a smooth ride, a lot in common with Oktoberfest, keeps the hops and bitterness low, mild caramel sweetness and flow.

Germanic in influence far more than some of the hoppy amber offerings in the states.
