3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Served up a clear, though quite dark amber-hued body with a thinnish, but lasting, white head.
Smell: Pale malts, some inclusion of toasted bread and a sweetish caramel glaze paired with light notes of citrus fruit and herbs.
Taste: A common start of pale, toasty, and caramel-minded maltiness. Medium-light sweetness throughout. Woodsy, lightly floral, lightly citrusy hops and bitterness. There’s a growing herbal, tea-like hint in the background. Bittersweet finish with a lingering spiciness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s pretty good, fairly drinkable, and likable for an amber.

On tap @ Asheville Pizza.
Lighter copper color. Creamy head. There was a problem with the lines which made this look like a nitro pour. This actually added to the character of this beer. Aroma has a bit of butter. Flavor is a light toasted malt. Sweet malt. Wooded hop. Sessionable. Tastes smooth and creamy.
