Amber color with thin lace. Green apple aroma and taste as well as some toasted malts. Slightly hoppy. The best way for me to describe this brew is clean in aroma and taste. However, I would have liked it to be more flavorful. It wasn't bad, but certainly not memorable.

The beer offers caramel sweetness up front, although reasonably restrained while still showing itself as an amber. Then onto herbal, grapefruit, citrus peel and the beer low bitterness and flavor in general.

Thin, tastes of an overly carbonated slightly maltier version of Budweiser.

Poured from the 12 oz bottle, which is stamped 'Best by 4/10/15', into a pint glass. Nice off white head rises on the pour, with a bit of lacing as it is consumed. Body of the beer is copper in color, clear with mild carbonation. Aroma is on the light side, slightly herbaceous. This brew is a Top-fermented ale with Munich malt, and it says on the bottle 'all natural', and 'refrigerate'. But I don't think it requires refrigeration, and 'all natural' is a very generic term. The first sip yields a malty sweetness, with a bit of grassy flavor, a hint of fruit with a suggestion of bitterness at the end to clean the palate. I love the label, and also the cap, which features different mountains in the Adirondacks and lists their elevations. Overall, an enjoyable amber ale!

In Laurel, MS>
A: Hazy light in amber color with short cap of off-white tight head with decent retention and a nice side lace at the top of the pour.

S: Aroma has some bready malts with some caramel sweetness, graininess, and herbal, hops notes of earth or dirt

T: The flavor has some citrus notes with some caramel sweetness.hops that run through the finish. Not dry or bitter, which are more to my liking.

M: Light to medium body.

O:: Better than average, in a style that I generally like.
