Poured from an undated bottle: almost ruby red and slightly hazy with a sustained off-white, foamy head that receded slowly leaving some nice lacing.

Faintly fruity aroma with some sweet malt accents.

The flavor profile was much better than I expected given the reviews. Roast flavor with hints of caramel with a refreshing fruity aftertaste. There is a nice hop presence that keeps the ale interesting and nuanced.

Not the best amber I have experienced but worth seeking out.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a brown/amber color with a 1/2inch head. Smell is of caramel malts. Taste has hops up front, caramel malts at the finish, balanced and smooth. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
