Great color. A little malty up front but smooth due to lack of fizz....could use a little more.
Pretty good beer....give it a try

On-tap @ Czig Meister Brewing Co. in Hackettstown, NJ.

Deep amber color with a small head. Fresh caramel malt aroma with light earthy hops. The balance in the flavor is all malt but it's not sweet at all. Some raisin and plum fruitiness while caramel undertones remain throughout. Smooth in the finish. Medium bodied.

Not what you would think of when you hear "American Amber Ale." This is almost more British in nature. The hops take a backseat to the malt and provide subtle balance rather than bright citrus notes. An easy drinker.

Brewery draft. Pours reddish brown, light foam, medium dark. Amber colored. Toasty malt nose. Breads galore. Sweet open that spills into a balanced malty based hop. Smooth and toasty throughout. Really tasty.

DATE: July 2, 2016... OCCASION: a perfect summer day spent in the yard, on the deck, and at the park--trifecta... GLASSWARE: Victory nonick... dark, ruby brown body takes care of the "amber" denotation immediately... slight effervescence... short and sweet off-white head that rings to a quarter-inch, lining smears in between... sweet caramel and candied sugars meet the nostrils head on, while dank, earthy hops evoke a woody atmosphere... the first sip is on the flat side of cola, with slight effervescence stimulating the back of the throat... the teeth are left without much love, but the medium body at least signals a beer with characteristics... as the glass drains, a nice lacing is left behind... plum, hazelnut, cracker, dank earth, and caramel blend reasonably to develop the profile, though caramel invokes the greatest attention.... sips easily, though not evenly--for an ale, not much is happening up front, as a dryness pervades... overall, a beer that I would have again at Czig Meister's--especially if I BYOF, as this could be a nice, middle-of-the-road companion for a number of meals--but not one I would put into a growler... again, great to have beer in Hackettstown...
