12 oz bottle poured into a spiegelau glass.

A - copper clear body with foamy white head. Good retention and lacing. Lots of visible carbonation.

N - perhaps a bit stale. Good malt character, caramel and bread. A little kind of earthy hops.

T - pretty tasty. Light hop character, nothing too overpowering. Mostly it's a rich malty taste though.

M - smooth. Good aftertaste.

O - nicely drinkable beer. Good enough. Cheers.

Another "Hop Head" brewery. When I drink an Amber, it's because I don't want an IPA. Would be better beer without the hops.

Could come together better. Has a somewhat harsh malt character. Still, very drinkable.
