3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy ruby-caramel with a copious, billowy tan head. Good nose with a slight hoppy element. The taste is a bit more hop-forward than I’d expect for an amber ale, but enough caramel malt component to keep it within style. Plenty of carbonation, nice crisp finish, really drinkable. A decent amber ale.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin tan head. Aroma was full of pine and floral hops with a slight undertone of grains. Flavor began with grainy malts and then the pine hops take over for a bitter finish.
