A: Pours an amber color with a nice head that fades slowly to lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and not much else.

T: Mild taste of roasted malt and caramel sweetness. There is a mild bitterness and a dry finish.

F: medium body, some and creamy like texture. Nice balance.

O: Nice amber that goes down easy. Good for a few.

One of the lightest looking amber ales I've seen. Very light amber. Tan head though? Funky old aroma. Like a barn.

Taste, a little better, heavier than appearance would lead you to believe. Very smooth, lacking bitterness or hop character. Nutty. Is this an amber, alt or brown ale? Can't tell by drinking.

Overall, not my style, just tasted unadventurous, a solid malt beer for people who don't like hops or bitterness. Too pricey for me to drink when I'm not all that high on it to begin with.
