Bottle poured into a snifter

Clear copper russet with a line of bubbles leading to a layer of big bubbles. Settles to a ring of bubbles

Aroma of grassy hops and sweet malts

Malt on the front, slight bitterness on the back of the tongue.

Slight bitterness on the edges and back of the tongue.rush of carbonation on the tongue

Good beer, better in my memory than this tasting. I'd taste it again.

I am trying different brands of this style and found this to be almost misplaced. Although a nice looking amber ale, I found the taste to be out of the norm for the style. It reminded me of a hoppy version of Amber Bock, but with a little more complex ale flavor. The esters and fruitiness of traditional Belgian ale yeasts do not come through in this beer. Some may like it but I will pass for a Leffe Blonde any day...
