Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber color with a one finger head of white billowy foam. The head has a lighter level of retention, fading to leave a tiny level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is mainly of a caramel aroma with light hints of a roasted malt smell mixed within. Some very light floral and herbal smells are there as well helping to balance out the caramel smells.

Taste – The taste begins with a smoother lightly toasted malt and caramel flavor. The caramel flavor gains strength toward the middle only to fade again more toward the end of the taste. All the while the roasted malt flavors remain relatively constant, creating a base flavor for the brew. As the nose would have suggested, some hop flavors come at the end of the taste with a floral, herbal, and earthy hop flavor all making their presence known. In the end, these hop flavors end up mixing with the rest of the flavors to leave a rather smooth and pleasant lightly roasted caramel flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The mouthfeel is rather nice for the amber ale style while also being great for the easy drinking nature of the brew,

Overall – A tasty and very easy drinking amber ale. While not anything too outstanding overall, it is a good 6 packer beer to share with friends as it is flavorful and very non offensive; good for just about any taste preference.

I have had this twice, the first time it tasted like laundry detergent, sent it back and got something else. Several weeks later I tried it again at the same place and was a lot better. (must have been bad dish washing) Anyway it is just like any pale ale I brew at home, nothing special to write about, but hope to see more from these folks, though they seem to be keeping a low profile. Somewhat rich in malt flavor with a cascade hop aftertaste. (and an extremely hop tasting "burp", which reminds me of when I tried sucking on a hop cone (not as pleasant as you would hope)
