22oz bottle from"Lifesource" in Salem. $4.59 Pours a dark,ruddy red colour with a large and thick light tan head. In the aroma its nugget hops to the front,herbal alightly grassy with a good caramel malt aroma to the end. Taste is a fair balance of the caramel hop and the hops with the malts just winning out. OK mouth feel. Nice drinkable amber. Good beer.

MrHangover (2726) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a murky brown beer with a massive off white head on top. Aroma is malty, rather faint, very hoppy, light citric. Flavor is moderately bitter, very hoppy and woody. Long bitter aftertaste, classic example of an Amber Ale.
