Appearance – This one is a beautiful, dark orange in color with a moderate but retentive head.

Smell – There is some light grain to this nose along with a bit of citrus hops. I can also pick up some caramel notes. The overall nose is balanced with a bit of emphasis on the malts but very subtle, which is typical of the style.

Taste – This ale picks things up at the taste just as the style demands. The malts are big and soaked in caramel. The citrus hops are here from the nose but they are definitely in the background.

Mouthfeel – This medium-bodied American Amber Ale is big and chewy with a good balance.

Drinkability – This big, satisfying ale was my favorite of the Bear Republics that I tasted at the pub on this visit.
