Semi-hazy, a copper hue that's on the tarnished side but still pretty to look at. Head is fine, of low or medium retention, light tan, with decent lacing. Raisins, sweet oranges, caramel, resin aromas. Very interesting taste and feel to this one, not at all what I was expecting. Not so fruity on the palate, but resin and caramel as expected. Strong, but easy to miss malt backbone. Raisins if you look for them. Rind, pine, and a dash of peppercorn for the finish. Medium in body but the way the bubbles behave and the balance of [and dearth of distinct] flavors make it seem deceptively thin. Not overly carbonated, but the fine and sudsy nature of it makes it seem like there's a lot. Crisp and smooth. Would try again. In fact, I think I have a 22 ounce bomber lying around somewhere. This one was just a 12.

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated nicely. Lacing was there in a messy sort of way.
The smell had a somewhat sweet caramel breadiness rolling over sweet caramel and toffee malts. Light citrus and earthy hops assist in balancing nicely.
The taste was moderately sweet with a smooth earthy bitterness to balance.
The mouthfeel was somewhat sweet creamy backed up by a bitterness over my tongue, so there's a nice harshness. Its about light to medium bodied.
Overall, its a nice amber ale. I could have again if I wanted one of the style.

More on the holier side, with a slight toasty finish. Fine, solid; nothing life-changing.
