Bottle to pint (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a slightly hazy amber with off-white lacing and lively carbonation. Smells and tastes solid; sweet, hoppy, and malty with nice balance and a caramel presence. Nice and light on the palate for an Amber. A good example of the style.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a nice biege head. Aroma of malt, caramel, citrus, and florals. Taste is caramel malt, citrus fruits, and florals. Enjoyed the balance. Excellent.

Another home run from the boys in Madison. Such a great balance, although aggresivly hopped for an amber it still has enough malt backbone to really shine. Great beer and well made.

Light aroma of??? Not much... Bitterness up front ...breast and malty... Hop taste but not smooth and not a good hop taste at least not my type of preferred hop prescence... Fair at best:(

Very good hop aroma.... smells more like an ipa than an amber. Pours a cloudy copper color with a nice tan head. Good lacing on the glass. Very well hopped and very drinkable.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Dark amber color with light tan head and light lacing. Significant hops aroma with some sweetness. Hops in the forefront with medium bitterness, some malt flavor comes through before fading to the floral hops. Medium body, and hoppy finish.

Man, that was a good beer! Beautifully hopped, text book amber ale. Citrusy bitters perfectly weighted against a lovely deep malt. Excellent!
