On tap at Gore mountain, pours amber color with a nice 2 finger foamy beige colored head that faded slowly and left good spotty lacing. Smells nice and malty with caramel, brown sugar and crackers. Flavor is rich and malty, with caramel, light floral hops, graham cracker, toasted grains and biscuit. Very easy to drink with average carbonation and a light feel.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; no production information.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, light copper color with a quarter to half inch foamy off white head, little retention, but some lacing.
S: A savory bouquet as warms. Aromas of pear, caramel, and biscuit.
T: Dry. Taste focuses mostly on bready side of nose. Sharp bitterness at first, but less in the middle, but a sharp pepperiness at the end.
M: Light bodied and light to moderately effervescent. Relatively bitter bite at end leads to not quite clean finish.
O: Enjoyable and drinkable, if a little less than complex.

Rust/copper color, slightly high carbonation. Aroma is sweet malt caramel. Taste is similar with a mild bitter hop taste that sort of lingers in the background. It seemed a bit different than some other amber ales I've had lately in a positive way

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a ruddy light brown to amber color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated pretty quick. Lace slides into the beer. The aroma had some sweet to roasty nuts, toast and biscuits, and grassy hops for some bitterness. The flavor tried to blend the hops to malts but mainly stays with the malts as the forerunner of the taste. Semi-dry roasty sort of nutty aftertaste which holsters the same sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation. ABV felt fine where it is. Semi-smooth on my tongue. Overall, fairly nice amber ale worthy of coming back to.

Smooth and caramel tastes, has a very unique taste that has the dank hops but no bitterness. Very warm flavors yet great for a summers day. Paired with some BBQ wings it compliments the sugar in the sauce very nicely.

Pours an amber copper color with medium head.
Smell is faint sweet malt and a bit of caramel.
Taste is faint caramel followed by grapefruit and citrus.
Not your typical amber.
